FlameRobin project page upgraded to new SourceForge software

Hi all,

the project page has been upgraded to the new SF.net software.  The bad
part is that the URL of the git repository has changed again, hopefully
for the last time, so you will have to clone the repository again.  But
as Damyan pointed out, better to do this sooner rather than later, and
FlameRobin would have been upgraded to the new software anyway.

The good part is that the new software has some new features, most
prominently IMO voting on bugs and feature requests (which I have
already enabled).

git clone http://git.code.sf.net/p/flamerobin/flamerobin-git

Flamerobin switch from SVN to Git is complete

Git repository is up and can be accessed as documented on SourceForge git page


Commands "git branch -l" and "git tag -l" show what they should, so it
probably went pretty good, but please check things out (git log , gitk ..)

We are sure things are in order and the Subversion repository 
is now disabled

I have updated the Buiding guide from git

New FlameRobin snapshots 0.9.3.2246.* builds


Flamerobin 0.9.3 revision 2246 binary snapshots for Windows are available .
The new snapshot is with two changes:

1.Yet another attempt to properly treat nullability of procedure parameters (there are differences between Firebird versions, for nullable parameters rdb$null_flag need not be null, it may be 0) 

see SF.net tracker item #3565746 
Full diff is here and here 

2.And Show "Not Null" and "Default" columns for parameters in procedure Property pages 
(needs better formatting, ideally column widths in Input and Output parameter tables would be equal)

Full diff is here


Enjoy, and please be sure to report any bugs, regressions or suggestions on flamerobin-devel list.

Snapshot was created before SVN to Git migration

Fun fact: We migrated over the years from CVS -> SVN -> Git

New FlameRobin snapshots 0.9.3.2243.* builds

Flamerobin 0.9.3 revision 2243 binary snapshots for Windows are available .
The new snapshot uses a thread to establish the database connection. That means that the progress dialog can be moved and cancelled, and the progress bar is updated in indeterminate mode. To see it in action it’s best to try to connect to a database on a server which is not available or which doesn’t exist, which so far blocks FlameRobin completely until the connection call times out
Enjoy, and please be sure to report any bugs, regressions or suggestions on flamerobin-devel list.

Windows8 and flamerobin

Seems that flamerobin works on windows8 , i have spotted it on Marcu Cantu's blog

 Yes he does use a classic skin , seems that underneath win8 = win7 with yet another ugly skin (designed for tablets only)

 

 If you are stuck on Windows7/8 there is a nice alternative shell if you want to be productive : multi tasking ... Classic Shell (http://classicshell.sourceforge.net), which has the benefit of being free with source available.

FlameRobin connection thread test on Windows


I have posted a test version of FlameRobin: http://mghie.users.sourceforge.net/flamerobin_win32_test.zip
(a ZIP file containing only the 32 bit executables for Windows in ANSI and Unicode version) that uses a thread to establish the database connection. That
means that the progress dialog can be moved and cancelled, and the progress bar is updated in indeterminate mode. To see it in action it’s
best to try to connect to a database on a server which is not available or which doesn’t exist, which so far blocks FlameRobin completely until
the connection call times out. It would be great if people could test this and write (to flamerobin-devel) whether anything
breaks for them (it didn’t for me, yet). I’m a little of unsure if I should clean this up and commit…
Thanks

Feedback from users

It completely replaced IBOConsole for me.

IBOConsole has no 64 bit support and can only run in Windows.

FlameRobin on the other hand has 64 bit support and runs in many OSes.

I've been following the progress of this project since 2005 (version 0.2.0).

Back then it looked very nice and very promising but it wasn't "there" yet.

Now, it IS "there". Maybe the developers should change the version to 1.0 to celebrate it

Flamerobin New snapshot 0.9.3.2210.* builds

New snapshot builds (SVN revision 2210) for Windows 32 and 64 bits are
available on SF.net.

Feedback on field and text delimiter settings for save grid data as CSV
file command would be especially welcome.

Thanks
