Scribe/Mac Alpha 1
Date: 26/3/2007
After 2 years of work I released a build of i.Scribe and InScribe for Mac OS X yesterday. And no one had even signed up for a notification email! (So the script broke). Anyway the first bug report is in and...? It doesn't run on 10.4.9 because it can't find the resource 'Scribe.lr8'. Which is weird because it finds that fine on my machines.

Also there are some other issues I'm aware of like, a) the app crashes when entering email for a contact (not sure how I missed that) and b) you can't enter spaces into text fields for some unknown reason. This worked a few days ago, I must've broken it very recently.

So I'll get that all sorted out and post test15 shortly. If your experiencing the 'Scribe.lr8' error message try a logging build from the terminal and send me the output.

For reasons unknown the download size is hovering around 2.1mb which is much larger than either the Windows build (950kb) or the Linux build (1.4mb). I don't know why that is, but if you have any ideas let me know! The binaries are built from more or less the same number of lines of source and sane GCC options so I'm at a loss as to why it's so big. I'm even wondering whether Lgi is being included statically inside the Scribe binary as well as being included as a separate framework. Is that even possible?

Anyway crawl before walk right?

Scribe/Mac Alpha
Date: 24/3/2007
I've completed all the things needed for a reasonable Alpha release of i.Scribe/InScribe including some basic import/export support using drag and drop, which is more than I intended to do. Also I fixed the help system to bring up something rather than error out.

However I havn't got the project setup to built the Lgi framework inside the app bundle yet and I won't get another chance to look at it until tomorrow because tonight I'm off to a my wife's birthday party. Hmmm sushi.

Till tomorrow then.

Scribe/Mac sends mail!

Does sending work?

Today I fixed the address browse window (by fixing the GPopup class) which was non-trivial. Now I've just finished getting menu keyboard accelerators to work.

Good News
Date: 18/3/2007
Tonight Scribe/Mac received it's first email, well 307 email to be exact, from my main account. I've also fixed the weird invalidate issue where all my windows would draw on every update (slow). So things are a little faster. Not as fast as I'd hoped... but fast enough for an alpha release. I also got the account preview window happening.

Outstanding issues:
  • GWindow::Quit doesn't close the window
  • GEdit doesn't notify it's parent properly, can't add recipients
  • Submenus show up in the wrong place without titles
  • Adding list items to the account preview window seems absurdly slow

But hey... "receiving mail"! w00t.

According to is blocked by the Chinese government. I'd be interested if someone from China can confirm or deny this?

Scripting Documentation
Date: 12/3/2007
I've started a new forum to document various parts of the scripting language used in i.Mage and i.Scribe. I could write up all the info in a webpage or 3 but I decided it'd be easier and more communal to use a forum so that additional information and questions can be added by users. Once it's seems fairly static I'll collect all the information into a "manual" and publish it properly.
