NeoBook 5.6.3 Update Released

Postby Neosoft Support » Thu Mar 19, 2009 2:17 pm

NeoSoft Corp. has released NeoBook version 5.6.3.

The version 5.6.3 upgrade patch can be downloaded from the following website:

http://www.neosoftware.com/patch.html

Follow the instructions to download and apply the update patch.

NOTE: If you registered NeoBook 5 before February 1st 2008 then you will need to purchase a new registration code in order to use version 5.6 or higher. If you purchased NeoBook 5 after February 1st 2008, then this upgrade is free. Registered users of NeoBook 5.0 through 5.5.4 can purchase a new registration code for $25.

This update contains the following:

Enhancements

-Added an incremental search feature to the Goto Page screen. This option allows you to quickly jump to a specific page in a large publication by typing either its page number or the first part of its title. The type of search is determined by the sort method selected (numeric or alpha). The Goto Page screen can be displayed by pressing F7.

-The debugger now shows the location of VBScript and Jscript errors.

-Added a global variable called [WSHTimeOut] which can be used to modify the timeout value (in seconds) used when executing VBScript and JScript functions. Use "-1" to disable the timeout feature. (WSH stands for Windows Scripting Host.)

-Added AbsLeft and AbsTop options to the GetObjectInfo action. Use these options to obtain the object's absolute position relative to the publication's window rather than its parent object.

-Added a Vista manifest to the publication runtime and ActiveX control. The manifest uses the “AsInvoker” option. The manifest will not affect the behavior of compiled publications, but should make running publications under certain high security Vista configurations simpler. (Note: 99.99% of NeoBook users don’t need to worry about this.)

- And several other minor enhancements.

Fixes

-Corrected a problem that caused an access violation error when using the keyboard (page-up, page-down, etc.) to change pages under certain circumstances.

-List Box objects that have the “allow multiple selections” option enabled now correctly restore selected items when switching between pages.

-Its now possible to compile recursive functions. A recursive function is one that calls itself one or more times. Previously, including a recursive function in a publication would cause the compiler to crash.

-It’s now possible to use extended ASCII/ANSI characters, such as “ç”, in variable names.

-Made several changes to the ActiveX control (NB5ActiveX.ocx) to correct compatibility issues that surfaced when attempting to view pkg compiled publications on Vista PCs configured with non-admin accounts and User Access Control enabled.

-Corrected a problem that sometimes caused an access violation error when renaming objects from the Object List palette.

-Fixed a page printing problem that under certain circumstances could cause a portion of the current page’s background redraw incorrectly.

-Transparent Animated GIFs now display correctly when their fill property is set to something other than “hollow”.

-Corrected a problem that prevented empty List Boxes from redrawing properly when snapped.

-And several other minor fixes.

Hello and thank you for this 5.6.3 update.

I recently bought and installed the 5.6.2 NeoBook update in French version, from the TTP France reseller.

May I install the 5.6.3 patch over the French 5.6.2 version without fearing to loose the French language ? Or should I wait for TTP France to grant us a French version of the patch ?

Thank you for your excellent work...

Bonjour et merci pour cette mise à jour 5.6.3.

J'ai récemment acheté et installé la mise à jour 5.6.2 de NeoBook en version Française, sur le site du revendeur TTP FRANCE.

Puis-je installer le patch 5.6.3 par dessus la version 5.6.2, sans craindre de perdre le langage français ? Ou bien dois-je attendre que TTP FRANCE fournisse une version française de ce patch ?

Merci pour votre excellent travail.

I think will be a lot easier if you just upload the patch into the web page under the English patch.

La réponse de TTPF:
La première version de la mise à jour que nous avons reçue comportait un défaut nécessitant une recompilation que NeoSoft nous a promis pour la semaine prochaine.


The answer of TTPF:
The first version of the update that we received had a defect requiring recompilation NeoSoft that we promised for next week.

Search in help file doesn't work

Postby sombra » Sun Mar 29, 2009 2:10 pm

Hello Neosoft,

The help file distributed with the new version 6.5.3 don't allow to search.
Steps:
- Open help file.
- Change to tab "search"
- Type anything.
Nothing is found. This worked in previous versions.
I can read English, but... I write like Tarzan. (sorry)

That's nice. I'll take a look at the help compiler software and see if I can figure out why it would feel the need to disable that feature. I apologize for the inconvenience.

Bonjour,

Message adressé aux utilisateurs français de NeoBook :

La version de mise à jour présentée sur le site de TTP FRANCE comme étant un patch français vers la 5.6.3 est en fait... l'installateur de la version 5.5.4 de NeoBook...

TTP FRANCE a été avertit du problème par téléphone.

Merci de patienter quelques jours encore pour les utilisateurs désireux de patcher NeoBook en version française 5.6.3 !

J'ai téléchargé le patch et j'ai bien la version 5.6.3

je suis aller dans les mises à jour du produit et j'ai la version supèrieure 5.6.x

Si vous avez acheté NeoBook 5 avant le 1er février 2008, vous devez acheter un nouveau code d'enregistrement au prix de 25 euros (TVA incluse) pour pouvoir utiliser la version 5.6.

Jusqu'à présent, les mises à jour mineures étaient gratuites, mais l'amélioration d'un logiciel et le support technique sont de plus en plus coûteux. Pour garantir la poursuite du développement de NeoBook, nous avons estimé qu'une participation raisonnable pouvait être sollicitée. Nous espérons que vous comprendrez notre point de vue.

Vous pouvez vous connecter sur www.ttpfr.com pour commander votre code d'enregistrement de NeoBook 5.6.

Oui Gastoldi,

La bonne version de la mise à jour 5.6.3 est enfin disponible depuis mon appel téléphonique chez TTP France :wink:

C'est cool !
