AppMaker Generates Scriptable Applications

Bowers Development has posted an update for AppMaker #12 to generate scriptable applications. With this update, AppMaker generates the 'aete' resource, and code to resolve object references, to handle GetData and SetData events, and to create elements. This update supports PowerPlant. In the coming weeks we will post updates for our other languages.

Another new feature in this update is the ability to "override" generated code with your own code. You can specify an override name for the App, Doc, windows, dialogs, or DataDefs. AppMaker's generated code will instantiate your class instead of the standard class. Your override class is assumed to be a subclass of the standard class. I.e. your code overrides the standard code.

VSE Web Site Turbo 3.0.2

Voget Selbach Enterprises (VSE) announced the release of VSE Web Site Turbo 3.0.2.

VSE Web Site Turbo is a tool that tries to prevent web surfers from leaving a web site before it has been loaded.

It does that by making web pages load as fast as possible. VSE Web Site Turbo strips unneeded data from web pages, resulting in size reductions averaging from 20 to 50 percent based on content. It also optimizes JPEG and GIF images. The appearance of the web page is not changed.

The new version fixes several minor bugs and a conflict with the Palm Desktop Extension that could lead to a crash. It also offers a new preferences option that allows the user to filter special files.

Object Tools Releases Latest Version of Eiffel for Macintosh CodeWarrior

This is the Beta 5 release and should be the last beta before final release, (Apple would call it a Golden Master candidate).

Works on all CW versions from Gold 11 to Pro 5.3. Eiffel for Macintosh is now well integrated with the CodeWarrior IDE. The speed of the compiler is nearly doubled. The compiler now reports multiple errors instead of stopping on the first. What was known as the MOTEL library is now known as Honey. The compiler now adds generated .c files to the Code group correctly. Eiffel projects are better organized, reflecting the separation of concerns in Eiffel. Now supports the create keyword, rather than !! (still supported but flagged). The class creators clause now prefers the create keyword rather than creation. All known bugs have been fixed.
