Well, its been a while (where has the time gone?) but here is 2.18 Beta 12 (with very few changes I'm afraid).

If you have check for beta versions enabled, you should get notified of a new version and prompted to update in the next day or so. This is the most efficient method (bandwidth wise) as the updates are only a fraction of the size of the full install. Otherwise, you can get the full installation beta HERE. Note that this link will always get you the latest beta version!

Changes since v2.18 Beta 11:
  • #579 - Release held remapped button when switching layers and re-press on the new layer
  • #577 - Fix issue with some translations. Split up some simkey translations into separate lines and added {LMBU}/{LMBD} etc.
There ARE language template changes in 2.18 beta 12 - in fact that is the main thing that has changed!
language_template.xmbclp
Any problems, PM me a copy of the debug log file (or post a snippet in a code block here).

Thanks,
Phil

Bug report:

I have been used the CTRL key as a layer modifier (Layer-3). In beta 12, it seems that "CTRL + MMB4" or "CTRL + MMB5" will be transmitted when only CTRL key is pressed, and XMBC further remapps "CTRL + MMB 4/5" to MMB4/MMB5's SIMKEYS of Layer-3. Even after releasing CTRL key up, the yellow-highlight-indication of MMB4 and MMB5 does not disappear.

Is it related to above...? Also, the frequency with which the LEFT or RIGHT button is kept depressed during FIREFOX running (even still backgrounded) is increasing, in this beta. :(


For the Translation template:

The line #439: I think that it should be correct.
"\t\t\te.g. {LMBD}, {LMBU}, {RMBD}, {RMBU}, {MB4D}, {MB5U} etc." => ""

The line #441: "Numeric keyoad tags: ..." is not displayed even in English screen (w/o any translation).

Thanks,

Urm - eek... I made this change (#579) about 3 months ago but have not gotten around to publishing it until today...
The idea is that if you release the modifier key, it should release the layer's button and repress the button on the layer that was switched back to... But it sounds like there are some unintended side effects...

Certainly, it should not trigger any buttons when you simply press CTRL - thats odd.

Ive no idea what you mean by "Also, the frequency with which the LEFT or RIGHT button is kept depressed during FIREFOX running (even still backgrounded) is increasing, in this beta. :( " Have you remapped the left or right buttons? If not, there should be no impact... Its worth looking in the log file (with debug logging turned off) maybe I left some hard coded debug messages in there which could be delaying things - not something Ive noticed myself over the past few months though... so Im not sure.

As for the translation - yes, looks like I may have got that wrong - I'll check - and "Numeric keyoad tags" should be "Numeric keyboard tags" - again probably a screw up when I split the text up.. Will check and sort that (at least they are easy, even if I should have caught them before releasing it!)
The good news is that I hope the next beta will be available a little quicker (although the main issue may take some time to diagnose, I hope its not several months!)

Thank you for quick replying.

Now there are many problem, i will rollback into Beta11, so please wait for the Beta12's log for a while.
And, it may be a problem that compatibility with foobar2000 is the cause of mouse inoperability ... more than Firefox. :?:

I dont know - there are not many changes in beta 12, certainly none that should impact performance - foobar or not!

Here is 2.18 Beta 13 to fix the bug that Suke found in 2.18 Beta 12.

If you have check for beta versions enabled, you should get notified of a new version and prompted to update in the next day or so. This is the most efficient method (bandwidth wise) as the updates are only a fraction of the size of the full install. Otherwise, you can get the full installation beta HERE. Note that this link will always get you the latest beta version!

Changes since v2.18 Beta 12:
  • #579 - Fix an issue which inverted the 4th and 5th button causing them to get sent on layer change and apparently stick down.
  • #577 - Fix two issue in language changes made in 2.18 Beta 12.
There is one language template change in 2.18 beta 13 to fix one little issue in the text added in beta 12 (second {RMBD} should be {RMBDU})
NOTE: For Suke and AndyK (who have already provided beta 12 language packs), I have updated them and you should not need to do anything.

Any problems, PM me a copy of the debug log file (or post a snippet in a code block here).

Thanks,
Phil

Hi,

please remove one "{RMBD}" - it is present twice in the German translation

line 439
"\t\t\te.g. {LMBD}, {LMBU}, {RMBD}, {RMBU}, {MB4D}, {MB5U} etc." => "\t\t\tz.B. {LMBD}, {LMBU}, {RMBD}, {RMBU}, {RMBD}, {MB4D}, {MB5U} usw."
Andy
