Software update: Konfabulator 2.1.1

Spread the love

Konfabulator can be used to create so-called widgets to install and display. Widgets are small applications that display all kinds of information to the user via JavaScript, such as news headlines, weather data, system settings and calendars. The program is comparable to Dashboard from Mac OS X Tiger and is available for systems with Mac OS X and Windows as the operating system. The developers recently released version 2.1.1 with the following changes:

Widget changes:

  • Fixed problem with determining night time with other timezone names in TheWeather.

Engine Changes:

  • Added URL.responseData to allow the ability to get the response regardless of the response code. Previously, if you had a response code that was not 200, the only result you’d see was “Cannot load URL.” URL.result still will return that for backwards compatibility.
  • Added system.userWidgetsFolder.
  • Fixed animation code to behave nicer when no parameters are passed into start()
  • Fixed CustomAnimation to behave better if a floating point number was passed in for the interval.
  • Changed CustomAnimation so that you cannot pass an interval of zero.
  • Fixed ease validity checking. It was rejecting kEaseNone.
  • Make sure to remove handlers when passed an empty string or null.
  • Made openURL deal with other protocols better (eg mailto:)
  • Fixed issue where animations now make sure that the object they are animating can’t get garbage collected during the animation.

Windows Changes:

  • Fixed problem where windows were getting chopped off after a display change.
  • Attempt to fix an issue where the WiFi Widget would throw a string encoding error and exit on some setups.
  • Fixed issue where if you created a window in JavaScript and then set something in preferences, you’d see an error in the debug window about “window001” or the like not being found. We no longer use JS to set the preferences.
  • Fixed bug that caused URR (and possibly other Widgets with highly dynamic content) to crash.
  • Fixed bug where popupMenu could crash if the popup items were garbage collected too soon.
  • Fixed bug where Widgets launched while Konspose was up were not aware of Konspose.
  • Finally implemented system.event.timestamp.
  • Fixed issue where we might not find a header in an HTTP response if the case was wrong.
  • Fixed issue where if you started an async fetch of a URL inside the done proc for a previous one it would crash.
  • Fixed issue where passing an array into runUntilDone could crash.
  • Fixed issue where a non-editable text area was not sending onMouseUp/Down, etc.

Macintosh Changes:

  • Fixed image interpolation quality when resizing images
