Oh, shut up. It is nice to have some news to say that to, though- the 83-archive news has been the only news for (it seems) weeks.

What you say!

By the way, when I installed TiLP, InstallShield crashed after it finished copying the files (you know, right before you click the 'Finish' button). Just thought you guys should know...

<mope>Not that it's important or anything. Nobody cares about me. I think I'll go shoot myself... *bang*, that feels better.</mope>

It's sad. I nearly memorized the entire AYB sequence.

Oh well, I find that the Linux version runs much better than the Windowz version. Even though my Linux box is a P-150 and my Windows system is a PIII-650. I find that there are many more features and options when I compile from source. Let's see you everyday Windowz users do THAT without spending $150 on developer studio(Or pirate it, illegally) to compile your software, you Microsoft dependent slaves!


However, I realize that this IS Ticalc.org, and I should not go on in my crusade against Microsoft commercial world domination here.

I'm thinking that, maybe, the LPG might want to rename their index page to something other than 'Untitled Document'. This reminds me of FrontPage... ack.

The comment below is no longer the seventh comment.
Because of me.

It seems like ticalc.org would delete those messages--their guidelines say that they will delete "FIRST COMMENT!!!!!!!" posts:

"Messages containing 'first comment' boasts, requests for game ports, or criticisms of 'newsworthiness' will generally be deleted."

Maybe they don't follow that policy anymore.

OK... So first, Romain and I would like to address a big big big "Thank you" to those people whose only goal in life is to post "FIRST POST !!! HAHAHA !!!". Really.

We're spending hours and hours, never counting how much time we spend working on these softwares (also not counting how many money we spend on hardware), and all we get is "HAHAHAHAH FIRST POST !!!!" and the like.

This is a question of respect, I think.

Now concerning the news we submitted, here is the full text that was mailed to the ticalc staff :

**************

New releases of TiLP and GtkTIEmu are available.

There's a new feature in TiLP, which allows you to group/ungroup/view TI group files (this is called the Group File Manager) ; it's handled through the use of a
new library, the TIFFEP.
Concerning GtkTIEmu, the debugger is now available on WIN32 platforms too, and you can now load files directly from disk (no need to use a virtual link anymore).

Both TiLP and GtkTIEmu have been successfully tested on Windows XP.

TiLP is being ported to Mac OS X, and a native WIN32 port should appear shortly.
Last but not least, JB and I are developing drivers for the TI GRAPH LINK USB, under Linux, WIN32 and Mac OS X (as part of the libticables for the latter). It's still a work in progress, however beta drivers for Linux and WIN32 are available (and usable) on the LPG website [1]. For the Mac OS X stuff, see the TiLP homepage [2].

**************

Finally, we'd like to thank all the people who mail us. Your feedback is really appreciated.

(Who am I ? I'm Julien BLACHE, Debian maintainer of TiLP, GtkTIEmu and their support libraries, author of the Mac OS X port of TiLP)

Cool! I'll be able to use my TI-89 with OS X! I wonder when TI is going to release an OS X-compatible version of Graph-Link...

Yes, hopefully in a few weeks you'll be able to receive/send vars, do screendump, and maybe small backups.

The thing is, the TIGL USB does not yet work as it should :) Basically, I get only 2 things with it : "Calc is ready" or "timeout" :P

I could have found 2 or 3 bugs while working on the Linux userland support of the TIGL USB, I'll check that in a couple of minutes.

Roms is designing a hardware sniffer, hopefully we'll be able to see how the TI software handles the device and then complete our drivers...

Anyway, I hope to release at least an alpha version before the end of the year, but do not expect anything completely stable before the end of January at least :-/

Glad to see that this OS X port will be used :-)

JB.

Blah. I was right, there was a couple of bugs. Squashed.

So, now I get a dirlist, screendump, vars (both ways), group files (both ways), and sometimes backup (download only -- 1/100 is successful => real problem here, same happens under Linux and Win32).

I've updated the screenshot on the webpage.

Sounds like I'll be digging inside Cocoa DnD this week-end, once I'll be out of the Linux kernel.

This was a good day, after all. Off to bed now %-)

JB.

TiLP and GtkTIEmu are very good ideas... they seem pretty cool.. but i could never get them to work on my comp (win 98)... it always crashed when i tried to connect to my calculator... (this was a month ago, i forget details)... but good work.. keep it up, hopefully other people are more fortunate and have computers that actually work.

It did the same thing to me for quite a while. Not sure what I did to fix it, though... but I did.

sorry, it was a long time ago, i'll bet the filter on my computer had something to do with it.. that thing jacked up everything about my computer... (Content Watch)... i can't defragment my HD's cus it's constantly writing stuff onto them... and it took off Internet Options (for an unknown reason)... so i can't do anything in there either... summing up: my life has sucked ever since my mom got retarded and put a filter on the comp. (btw, does anyone have a filter where it is absolutely IMPOSSIBLE to access bad stuff?... i don't think there is a single filter in the entire world that actually works)

It's called Windows.
