++ From the VOICE OS/2-eCS News Service http://www.os2voice.org ++
I'm pleased to announce the availability of XWP v1.0.11, a new version
that features some significant enhancements and bug fixes. Portions of
this work were subsidised by a generous grant from VOICE International.
XWP's Splitview folder window has been redesigned and renamed Xview.
Now, in addition to the tree-and-icon view that's great for looking
at Desktop folders, it offers a tree-and-details view better suited
to managing files on your drives.
Changes to XWP's build system now permit the creation of two versions:
Full and Lite. Lite is very similar to eWP but without the eCS branding
and logos. Unlike eWP, it includes XWP's Startup Folders, probably the
most popular XWP feature missing in eWP. Be aware that it does not
contain XWP Setup or Media.
In previous versions you had to install a base package, then a separate
NLS package. No more!! Each package (DE/EN/IT/JA/NL) is now a complete,
standalone version with everything you need. Multiple language support
is still possible: install the languages you want, with your preferred
As always, this version is packaged as a WarpIn archive. Unlike earlier
versions, it uses os2.ini entries to create objects. just as the OS
installer would. After installation, let WarpIn restart the Desktop or
reboot manually to have XWP's objects created.
Currently the files are in the 'incoming' directory at hobbes
Eventually, they will be moved to 'apps/wps/xworkplace'
