This post is to run through the current development status of the upcoming Alpha 0.0.7.0 build. Many features are in progress at the moment but also I am encountering what I can only
describe as blocker issues. (problems that stall progress)
Tab label change
After saving a file we need to change the label to the filename. I didn’t think this would be too difficult but with Gtkmm I don’t seem to have a grip on doing this. Currently the
filename will be applied to the tab but in the process the close tab button will disappear.
While the brush options are in place I have been struggling to get them working with the painting code. Reason being is that I need to pass refbuilder to the canvas. Even after many
attempts this still remains an issue.
I wanted to provide dual colours for the paintBrush(left and right click) and single click colour buttons. However, Glade seems to mess up the entire toolpalette when I add the buttons.
Im not sure of the solution until maybe I talk to a more experienced Glade user. Currently just the single colour selector remains until I figure this out.
Lastly in this post I would like to thank Colin Mills who kindly donated to the project. Remember donating keeps me motivated to work on the project and also ensures the
website/project will stay online. The project could use some help on these “blocker” issues. If you think you could help out please get in touch via my e-mail address on the contact
