HMG 3.4.0 Announce

( Post by Rathinagiri )
Dear XBasers,

I am glad to release the new HMG 3.4.0 version. I hope you will be enjoying the new features of HMG.

With the updated MingW compiler the size of the HMG setup file is now 84 MB. We have plans to reduce this size considerably in the future versions.

As usual you can download the setup file from SourceForge site from here.

Change Log:

HMG 3.4.0 (Test) 2015/01/18

  • Updated to latest Harbour Nightly Build (2015-01-14)
  • Updated to latest MingW Compiler
  • New HMG IDE version 1.0.8
    • now stops build app if app is running
    • if not specified text editor, search for text editor associate with PRG files
  • New in Grid control (see samples in grid samples folder)
    Note:

        Grid Group is not available when application is running on Windows versions of 32-bits
        You can check if your application is running on Win32 with the function HMG_IsRunAppInWin32()
      In Win32 GroupEnabled := .T. is ignored whitout needs to change the code.
