Shoes 3.3.1 (finally)

There’s only minor changes since the last beta. Let’s set this puppy loose and see what doesn’t happen! Download from here

Windows Users – you must uninstall earlier versions of Shoes before installing 3.3.1.

Changelog:
New with 3.3.1

  1. Video widget. If you have VLC installed, Shoes will find it (and
    you can tell Shoes where your VLC is). Once found, you can use it.
    You can not package VLC with you script however.
    Issue 133
    Caution: may not work on OSX < 10.10
  2. Secondary packaging. Use a Shoes installer script to install your app. Not
    for the casual. Too damn clever so there’s likely to
    be bugs and confusion.
    What it is

    Issue 188
  3. Uses Ruby 2.2.4. If you have native Gems that were built by earlier
    versions, they may not work. – Uninstall and reinstall the gem.
  4. Windows: Shoes comes with win32-shortcut gem. Undocumented and the
    online docs you do find are not always up to date.

Fixed with 3.3.1

  1. start {} blocks on stacks and flows work much better.
  2. Windows: does not use FONTCONFIG_FILE env var.
    Issue 216
    Benefits: Faster install, multiple installs, enables merge packaging
  3. Linux: fixed edit_box bug with Gtk >= 3.16
    issue 217
  4. OSX: don’t duplicate Shoes.app windows. Nasty if it happens to you.
    Cshoes suffered from this bug too. That works better now for OSX.
    Issue 190
    Issue 175
  5. Windows: ask_color crashes.
    Issue 209
  6. updated wiki article on building Shoes with Linux.
  7. remote debugger issue with newer byebug versions
    Issue 231

Developer issues for 3.3.1

  1. deleted gtk2 code. Video code is included.
    Some rakefiles were modified and are slightly less confusing.
  2. Windows: dependencies have changed – using Gtk 3.10.9
