Does this version fix the "system crash on rapid click of Parent/Root button"?

No I haven't figured out what causes that yet. I don't get any grim or serial output. I suspect it might be something like intuition locking layers while it's trying to update so there's a race condition but no actual crash. The Filer is single tasking when it happens though so there's no secondary process or something trying to update that causes it. Perhaps a simple IDOS delay would cure it, but that is not a desirable solution.

I'm checking it from time to time though and I promise to write in the update history when I've found a fix.

Wouldn't it be better to either raise the catalog version (so that catalogs for v53.29 would not be accepted) or either add ID in the .cd in order not to modify the catalog id->string map each time ? That would prevent you from such problems (you know there will always be one guy that no matter how many warning you put at the top of the readme (which he did not read anyway) that will bother you for a strange crash that will in fact be caused by his old incompatible catalog...)

I also ask because my French translation just got into proof reading this night and this morning I discover I just need to redo it :-/

I have no idea, would it? :) Care to show how?

Why do you need to redo it? This is not a public release.

As the first post mentions, this is a Dev release. Meaning that it's for people who can live with any quirks (including not using locale files since things are likely to change) and help me find bugs. Translating at this point may or may not be hazardous, but probably is. Always focus on the real public versions for translations.

Hmm, been stress testing this since after adding the icon accelerator and thumbnails but can't seem to make it freeze any more. Perhaps it's something in my settings that prevents it. If you can still make it happen with 53.30a could you post a snapshot of the 3 sub tabs of general prefs?

Yea sure :
From SDK:Documentation/Tools/Locale/CatComp.doc :
Special commands can be embedded in catalog description files to provide
control over the generation of header files
These commands are introduced
by a 
# symbol within the catalog description file. Any number of spaces,
tabs and '#' characters may appear between the first '#' character and the
command
The supported commands are:

  
#version <version number>
  
This lets you specify which catalog version number is required by the
  application 
and should be used in the #version command of the catalog
  
translation file. For example:

      
#version 46

      
would cause a "#version $VER: sample.catalog 51.1 (31.3.2005)"
      
command in the .ct file to cause a version mismatch error message.

  
A version number of 0 means any version will be acceptedthis was
  added 
for compatibility.

Also from SDK:Documentation/Autodocs/locale.doc:
SYNOPSIS
        struct Catalog 
*OpenCatalog(struct Locale *, CONST_STRPTRTag, ...);

[...]
   
TAGS
        OC_Version 
(uint16) - catalog version number required. Default is 0
                              which means to accept any version of the
                              catalog that is found
Note that if a version
                              is specified
the catalog's version must match
                              it exactly. This is different from version
                              numbers used by OpenLibrary().
                              Note: Do not call OpenCatalog() without
                              specifying OC_Version when you prefer
                              (but not require) a specific version.
                              In such cases call it with OC_Version and
                              fall back to a second call without OC_Version
                              when the first call returned NULL.

yes of course but chances are high that that will also be the case with the public release (as it was for previous public releases)

What about revision? I don't want to bump version all the time.

Yeah, blame the users who want new stuff all the time ;)

Can't get the thumbnails to display. I've read the readme and gemerated some thumbnails for a directory, I can see the tumbs in T: but they do not show in the lister, if allow them to 40 pixels square (rather than the default of 20) then additional space is made for the thumbs but the space remains blank.

Also check PM for a further question....

Ohh and also, mail the generated thumbnail icon from the thumbnail directory.

If you have "show real icons" activated, does the icon in the thumbnail dir display in the filer? (Ie browse to t:_thumnail/blah/ as see if the icon renders)

Sent images and icon. The icons do display in the thumbnial dir, just as any other icon, ie ghosted, there beong no "real file" associated with them in the icon directory.

Revisions are not supported. Then why not use ID's in the .cd ? Thus preventing incompatibilities.

I've PMed the snapshots to you. For what it's worth, the best way to get the crash is either:
1. Fast click on the Root button,
2. Fast click on the Parent button when in a deep folder. This is more likely to crash.

If you fast click on the Parent button when you are in the Root view (volumes listed), then it is very hard to get it to crash. This (again) suggests to me that it is related to trying to update the Filer's lister view when it is in the middle of being updated.

Okey, unfortunately you've tested it in an old version, I'd need it confirmed in 53.30a to be sure.

No, no. I *did* test it on v53.30a. I just took the screen shots with the "old" version.

New dev version uploaded. Fixes some issues that surfaced when you didn't have a previous filer.prefs in envarc, and some problems with icon library on some systems.
