A new release of C8 (build 8973) went out today. Around 50-60 fixes, changes and improvements. One of the new features was to implement support for PREVIOUS() for the ASCII and BASIC drivers; that means you can now easily drop ASCII/BASIC files into a Listbox control and “Browse” your text and CSV style files.
On the IDE side a few related new productivity features;
FEATURE: When selecting an image file in the window formatter you can now type in the name of the file and if it can be found via Redirection, the file will be used
FEATURE: When opening the file dialog in the window formatter for the first time the dialog will now open to the first directory where the file type would be found via the Redirection system
FEATURE: When re-opening the file dialog in the window formatter the dialog will now open to the last directory it was previously opened in.
We’re looking at other places where can use the Redirection system to make your programming more productive – have fun with the release.
