Version 0.0.27 released

February 5, 2010

Version 0.0.27 introduces support for hosting the server-side components on Linux (specifically Ubuntu 9.10). Up till now Remote Writer has used the wxJavascript library, which is actively maintained by Franky Braum, who is migrating the code to a new library called GLUEscript.

However, although Franky’s intention is to support Linux platforms as well as Windows, at the moment the code is not quite there, and I’m unable to get it to compile under Ubuntu. Therefore, I’ve decided, at least as an interim measure, to continue using wxJavascript for Windows installs, and a different library, JSEXT, for Linux installs.

I’d much rather use a single server-side javascript library for both Windows and Linux, but there you go — I’m hoping that GLUEscript will evolve nicely so that it meets this need, but for the time being JSEXT is being used for Linux.

There’s a few minor bug-fixes as well (check the change log).


Version 0.0.26 released

January 8, 2009

Version 0.0.26 incorporates a major update to the TinyMCE editor, from version 2.1.3 to version 3.2.1.1. A minor release in terms of direct functionality for Remote Writer (although the use of the newer version of TinyMCE offers efficiency and functionality improvements itself), but a reasonably major release in terms of changes to the code base.


Version 0.0.25 released

November 23, 2008

Version 0.0.25 includes a number of important bug fixes and useful features, including:

  • Addition of two simple scripts to aid debugging of wxjs.
  • Corrected help notes to reflect recent changes in wxjs.
  • Included new version of json library, which is better at parsing long strings using regExps

New version of wxjs

November 6, 2008

I’ve only recently realised that Franky Braem has released a new version of the wxJavascript Library, which now has been compiled against version 2.2.6 of Apache, for those who don’t want to compile Apache from source.

This has also meant some changes to the help notes, particularly

As a result, I’ve created a couple of simple javascript files for use in testing that the wxJavascript library is working correctly:

  • server\wxjs test_cmd.wxjs
  • server\wxjs test_html.wxjs
