Links updated  (posted by saubue)

I updated the links page, because some of the sites have moved to other addresses (they were still reachable via their old URLs, though). Sadly, Omnimaga has been closed recently, so I deactivated the corresponding link and added a note.

New guestbook  (posted by saubue)

I added a new guestbook today which provides a small captcha. This was neccessary because the old guestbook had been filled with spam. All messages from the old guestbook have been saved and are accessible in the new one, too.
The guestbook software used is Ardguest, which was modified to fit into the boolsoft page.
Please feel free to leave a comment.

I have uploaded a new game, Gold Miner. You have to grab items out of the earth with your claw until the time is up. If you meet the goal you will be able to buy power ups in the shop that help you in the next level. There are many items with different behaviour like pigs or tinderboxes. Of course your score will be saved in a highscore table.

AMS Extender 0.5.0 beta, BSS 1.0.0 and EasyChar 1.0.0  (posted by pinhead)

I'm sure you noticed the lack of activity on our site, but I was quite busy the last few months with school stuff. But recently I got some more free time, and now I am glad to present you a new version of AMS Extender as well as to two complete new projects, at least new on this site. All three projects have been under devolopment for quite some time, and I release some beta versions on MobiFiles.
AMS Extender has been heavily optimized and I added several new features. Also I switched to GNU GPL Version 3 and introduced a new versioning scheme, using it for all my current and future projects. This project, screenshots and the discussion can be found at our message board.
With Backup System Settings I wrote a small program to save and restore system settings. This tool can be very handy, especially for developers. BSS passed a public test phase (also on MobiFiles), and so I am able to present you the final version 1.0.0. It can be found, as well as the next program, in our download section.
Last but not least, EasyChar: The standard char menu on Texas Instruments calculators is in my opinion not that great, so I decided to create an own with a nice graphical interface and customization capatibilities. This program is also released in its final version, since it has been tested during the last months.

libl 0.1 out for testing  (posted by saubue)

A little project of mine, libl, is now ready for some beta testing. libl is a small and useful library for low-level file I/O, with a syntax similar to the standard f*-functions like fwrite(). Actually, the library consists of two source files which are released under the public domain, so you are totally free in how you use them.
libl 0.1 can be downloaded at our message board. Feedback is appreceated - I am looking forward to comments, suggestions and bug reports.

New member & message board news  (posted by saubue)

I am happy to announce that Oliver Hoog (aka Boscop) has joined the boolsoft team. Hopefully, he will bring back some life to boolsoft with interesting projects.
There are also news from the message board: I installed an anti-bot phpbb2 mod to prevent bots from registering and posting. The message board reopened and guests can now post, too (after answering a question from the mod). I also deleted all bot members.

Licensing changes and Advanced Dialogs 1.04  (posted by saubue)

As you may know, programs released under boolsoft have always been licensed using the GNU Genereal Public License. However, we decided to allow our programmers to release their programmers under other free licenses (namely GNU LGPL, BSD or public domain) as well.
Therefore, Advanced Dialogs 1.04 is now being released under the GNU Lesser General Public License (yes, this seems to justify the version number jumping from 1.03 to 1.04).
As usual, you can find the zip-archive at Downloads->Advanced Dialogs.

July 30th, 2007

Advanced Dialogs 1.03  (posted by saubue)

A new release of Advanced Dialogs is available, fixing another (stupid) bug reported by lachprog: when using multiple tabs and having interactive elements in the last tab, the first tab was ignored by AdvDlgDo() when switching tabs.
The corrected version 1.03 can be found at Downloads->Advanced Dialogs.

July 11th, 2007

Advanced Dialogs 1.02  (posted by saubue)

Maybe you noticed the lack of activity on this site... well, we are all kind of busy at our universities or schools and sadly do not have much time to program calculators at the moment.
However, I have updated Advanced Dialogs to version 1.02 which fixes a font bug reported by lachprog and some of the examples. The documentation is now generated using doxygen and is also available online at http://www.boolsoft.org/saubue/advdialogs/doc/.

The boolsoft homepage also offers a statistics page now which can be found at http://stats.boolsoft.org (although the design is not finished yet).

ASMToCHex available for *nix  (posted by saubue)

However, the command-line tool can be downloaded here.

TiExplorer 0.1beta and site update  (posted by saubue)

Today, pinhead has released the first beta of his upcoming project TiExplorer, 0.1beta, for the TI92+ and the Voyage200. Considering the fact that this is the first beta, it already has a long list of features, including standard TIOS options, a grayscale browser, calculator information and other stuff.
For a full list of features, screenshots, binaries and source code, please visit the corresponding section of our message board. As usual, we are looking forward to your comments.

Additionally, I rewrote the whole boolsoft homepage in PHP to make it easier to administrate. There are also some other changes:
- The news archive is not sorted by months any more. Maybe I will include this later
- We aren't offering a RSS newsfeed any more, instead, there is a ATOM newsfeed now. When you are browsing our homeage, you should (at least in FireFox) notice a newsfeed icon in you adress bar.
- The guestbook has a different design now. Some of the entries got lost somehow when we moved to the new server - they are restored now

After some testing by myself and one single bug report (which was just a question), Advanced Dialogs 1.0 is now officially being released. Therefore, the project page has moved from Projects->Other to Downloads->Other. You will find it on ticalc.org soon, too.

Advanced Dialogs 1.0 out for testing  (posted by saubue)

My TIGCC GUI library Advanced Dialogs is now close to its final release. This version adds support for bitmaps in dialogs, another example and some minor fixes. The full list of new features as well as the file itself can be found at the corresponding section of our message board.
Please post your thoughts, because I will release it at ticalc.org soon.

I should also note that this is definitly the last version of Advanced Dialogs as you know it. I have recently started with Advanced Dialogs Pro (there's no alpha version out yet), which will be far better than the standard lib. Please see the Advanced Dialogs-section at our message board to get an impression of this project.

On a side note, it seems that our rss newsfeed does not work properly at the moment. I will try to fix this as soon as possible.

ASMToCHex Qt and Lemmings 68k alpha2  (posted by saubue)

In the last few days, I played around with Qt, a C++ toolkit for application development; the first result is a Qt version of ASMToCHex which is called ASMToCHex Qt. Thanks to Qt, the GUI looks fine and the code (GPLed as always) is cross-platform compatible, so be sure to expect a Linux build of it soon.
You can download and discuss it at the corresponding section of our message board.

Additionally, Lemmings 68k alpha2 is now available at our message board. I am close to call it 0.1, but too many features are missing right now (e.g. scrolling levels). New stuff in this alpha: The second level (and therefore floating lemmings), TI92+/V200 compability and some minor changes. This version also includes the full source code that was missing in alpha1.
The full list of features, a screenshot and the dowload link can be found at the corresponding section of our message board.

A short part of my ToDo-List ;)
-- Advanced Dialogs needs an update; I have already got some ideas and suggestions from some people (BTW, thanks for that).

After working a lot at my TIGCC library Advanced Dialogs in the past few days, there is finally a new version (0.9) that nearly could be the first full version. The library has a totally new concept of initializing and executing dialogs which allows multiple interactive elements in a Dialog, and also a CheckBox feature was added.

It is still not version 1.0, so you can download and test it at projects->windows.

Last but not least another project: PowerComPress, a file compression program. I am currently working on a GUI for it.
