 Post subject: MapTool 1.3 Final (build 83)
PostPosted: Tue Feb 08, 2011 11:22 pm 
This is it! This is the final release of MapTool 1.3 and we now officially start on 1.4! All hail the King! ;)

There have been only minor fixes (as one would hope with all of the release candidates we went through!) and you can find a list by checking the Main Page of the wiki and clicking on the ChangeLog link in the bottom right corner.

I know that the language translation task in an on-going job, so I will continue to put together monthly builds of 1.3 to cover localization updates but I expect no other bug fixes against 1.3.b83 unless something pretty severe is found (which seems unlikely at this point).

For all of you thinking about 1.4, just remember that it will take some time. If you're thinking about asking for an ETA, I'd like to remind you of the following cartoon:

Tremendous job guys, pat yourselves on the back but don't hurt yourselves doing. :D

Great job ! Thanks for all the hard work that went into it.

Well, given the amount of work needed, I don't think it would be realistic to have expectations shorter than months before seeing a first beta. I'd want to suggest giving regular news regarding main achievements in between, but don't know if it would do good or wrong restraining users questions.

I have a set of parallel forums created for MT 1.4 that will go active at the right time. I want to get the dev team deciding on how the bug tracking should work in the very near term (we've discussed some ideas so far that integrate Mantis with these forums). And we've pseudo-parceled out a very high-level idea of who's working on what but I'm sure it'll change as we get into the nitty-gritty.

Right now we really need some folks to step up as documentors for 1.3! It was brought to my attention (!) that the ENnies are in May. Wouldn't it be cool for MapTool to at least get an Honorable Mention and beat out WotC's beta tool? We'd be setting the bar pretty high in terms of functionality, but we sorely need some good, basic docs. If you have a penchant for writing (or just like taking screenshots and then describing what's in the picture), perhaps check out the initial planning done by GamerDude and perhaps offer an hour or two a week to help. Think of how cool it would be to point to the MapTool docs and say, "I wrote that. Or at least I collaborated on it!"

Gratz on the final!

while I tried move a token on a map from an old campaign file. It didnt throw that NPE on other campaign files yet, so maybe the cmpgn file was simply to old? I dont remember what version I used to create that, but the file is from june 2010 (and I was always quick to update).

Hm. That section of code deals with figuring out which direction a token is being dragged by looking at the most recent waypoint, or if there isn't one then the starting point of the drag.

Double-hm. Was this a gridless map? It looks like an NPE could have happened on a gridless map if all of the right (wrong?) things came together. I've implemented a fix for that but I'll need to do some testing.

Edit: It's been committed as revision 5641. Please try loading the same campaign with that version and moving the same token.

hmm even before I can express my gratitude and congratulations to the dev team on yet another fine job I see that the very foundations of its finality are shaking already.

Nonetheless, as usual: great job, keep m comming. I'll see if I can provide some screenshots for the docs.

Bad news though : Azhrei, I think you forgot to include in the SVN the "i18n_fr.properties" file I sent you some days ago.

I made a package with the latest french translation (with the right encoding I think ... at least it displays well on my PCs), until the officiel download includes it :
