What they are thinking?

Post by sudip » Tue Jan 19, 2010 6:12 am

Hello Friends,

Can we have a special section to see what developments are going on with different libraries of Harbour and even xHarbour?
There is nothing similar like this in the whole world of Harbour and xHarbour.

Please forgive me if I am telling something wrong :)

With best regards.

My 2 cents ........

We should be aware of the new developments,ideas floating in the Harbour/xHarbour communities.
As all had the common "ancestor" - CLIPPER. May be we are more like a family but we should pay attention to the new developments happening in Harbour/Xharbour platforms.
Thanks & Regards,

Hello Sudip,

It is a very well suggestion :)

There is a changelog file in the Harbour SVN for that information. :arrow:

F.e., for now the Harbour guru Przemyslaw Czerpak was uploaded an updated memory allocator to DLMALLOC 2.8.4 from 2.83 version for the current Harbour SVN (great contribution :!: ). You can read more about this at http://gee.cs.oswego.edu/dl/html/malloc.html

* Add max_footprint functions
* Ensure all appropriate literals are size_t
* Fix conditional compilation problem for some #define settings
* Avoid concatenating segments with the one provided
in create_mspace_with_base

Dear,
I think it is good idea to go Sudip knowing that progress and what's new at harbor.
I would also be interesting to discuss some features that exist but no documentation as we know they exist.
We are grateful to Grigory who is always careful as to share their knowledge.
Best regards,
Luis Vasquez
