We pushed out a new C8 update today with a nice set of fixes and improvements, check it out and see what you think.
Its official, the developer conference location has been changed to Orlando, and the dates have
been finalized: September 26th – October 1st 2011
John Hickey and Arnold Young, hosts of ClarionLive organized a great conference last year in Denver.
This year SoftVelocity is working with them to make the Orlando conference an even better event.
I’ll be there along with Diego Borojovich and Pierre Tremblay. We’ll be doing the morning session
at the start of each day talking about Clarion 8 and Clarion.Net, integrating Clarion.Net code into your
Win32 app, and creating web and mobile applications. The rest of the day will be filled with sessions
presented by well-known Clarion developers; Mike Hanson, Rick Martin, Bruce Johnson, Andy Wilton, and Dave Harms.
You can read more about the event and register to attend at CIDC 2011
This is sure to be a great event where you’ll have the opportunity to learn a lot!
A new update is on its way to you just over a week after our last update. This one kills some GDI leaks that could affect programs on XP and Win Server 2003, and brings back the “Column 1″ check-box for the Embed Tree dialog.
We’re steadily progressing to a gold release!
An update for C8 is on its way out as I type; our focus was on fixing issues related to the Embed tree nodes, and we’ve fixed all issues that we were able to reproduce.
A new feature in this release; FREEZE/UNFREEZE can now be used for Menu controls, using the special value 10001h, or the EQUATE “Freeze:MenuBar” (defined in EQUATES.CLW). FREEZE/UNFREEZE for Menu controls might be needed if the Frame Menu control is being changed from an MDI child thread.
Another feature is new support for 256×256 icons under Vista/Win7.
