Splash hang is fixed with 2.0.7PR1

I'm reporting that the command line hang occurring with 2.0.6 is indeed fixed in the 2.0.7PR1 release.

Thanks!

Release Team Test 1

Okay I noticed a couple things.
1. I see the splash screen (splash.jpg) is in the App directory. It should be in the Other\Source unless this is something special to Toucan?
2. In the Launcher code I see the version Number 2.0.6.0. But in the appinfo.ini I see 2.0.7
3. Installer code line 24 you said that you're using Installer version 0.12.0.0 you the latest is 0.12.2. Typo?
4. In the Directory App\toucan. Toucan should be captitalized.
5. I didn't see a readme or license .txt

Well that's all for tonight I'll do another look threw later. Keep up the good work sorry for it all being nit picky stuff Blum

Thanks

for the feedback

Zach ThibeauThanks, much appreciated!

jstadolnikExcellent, I can score this off the list of bugs then :-)!

Jacob MastelPicky, picky Wink

  1. Toucan specific, unlike the other apps the splashscreen is handled by the progam and not the launcher, this means it is only open for as long as the app is setting iself up, rather than for a fixed time.
  2. Good call, looks like I missed that one, I think I might modify the launcher to pull that number from the config file to fix that in the future.
  3. Nope, didnt update it Wink I shall fix it for final (or the next pre-release).
  4. Must have changed since I set the folders up then, I am sure we always used to be lowercase!
  5. There should be a license.txt file in Other\Source (or at least there is in the copy I have here, Sourceforge wont let me download at the moment Sad ), what do I need in a readme?

But I'm picky in a good way...right!? :P

5. Opps I missed the license sorry, but the readme.txt should be there. Sorry I don't wanna paste it all in here but here's a pastebin of firefox's.

6. I'm a failure I missed this earlier :P. You need a readme.txt in the App folder (NOT Toucan's folder [$EXEDIR\App]) it should say

The files in this directory are necessary for Toucan to function. There is normally no need to directly access or alter any of the files within these directories.

Other than that I'm not seeing whole lot to be done. We'll see about the other rt members.

I haven't found anything else

I sent out a newsletter to the other rt members so hopefully some of them will double check my work. Hopefully we can get this out by tomorrow?...

Readme

You don't need a readme, it's only used to explain the launcher parameters for regular apps, of which you have none.

All looks good, however...

Typically the "VER" entry is for the version number of the launcher used globally by PortableApps.com (it's at like 1.6 / 1.7.something), however you might be an exception since you're a little stub launcher.

Also, I has no App\toucan\help.

Other than that, everything seems smooth.

Suggestion for next release.

Okay this doesn't have to do with this release but a suggestion for the next release would be a data only backup. You know kinda like the menu has built in? As I'm starting to use Toucan more and more it'd be nice to be able to create a job and have it auto do all the Data folders within my PortableApps folder. Any chance of seeing something like that in the future?

You

can already Wink Add the PortableApps folder to the backup list and then create a new rule that excludes folders called App and Other. Select it in the Backup tab and go! I shall add it as an example in the helpfile.

Okay that would be great.

As per your suggestion I tried to do it that way but when I said to exclude all folders named app it still decided to do the sub-directories. Any ideas?
