you can download it here: http://fresh.flatassembler.net/x2download.html.

This release is different from the previous version in one, but very significent detail: finally Fresh works with latest AsmEdit control. Most important benefit is that there's no 255 characters per line limit now. It involved a lot of changes in both AsmEdit and Fresh, that's why it took me so long Wink Please test source editor extensively - some bugs can be still present there.

I have also noticed that almost all tasks from John Found's TODO list for first Alpha version are completed. So, I decided that after fixing bugs in this release (I didn't solved problem with creating new projects from templates yet) I will announce first Alpha version of Fresh and prepare TODOs for Beta version. IMO Fresh was in pre-alpha stage for too long.

regards,
Mateusz Tymek

Very good job. You do a lot of cleanup all arround.
I have not seen any problems with editor so far.
Some issues with debbuger when calling APIs even with jumping over them.
Is the form visual editor still deactivated?
Thanks

shism2: Thanks fot the bug report, it will be fixed in next release (soon).

pelaillo: Debugger seems not to work as it should since a few versions. But I can't promise I will fix it very quickly.

Well, it wasn't deactivated. It is unfinished, but not deactivated.

:))) that's what i call a bug report.

decard: looking at strlib, i found that john didn't use to check API return values very much. IMHO That's one of main reasons why fresh is so crashy. (directory doesn't exist etc.)

estrang: I found this bug too just after releasing Fresh (crash when source contains no symbols). But thanks for doing test Wink Next release will contain bugfix.

vid: I will take a look at StrLib, thanks for mentioning about it.

Don't be so cruel, error checking is done after most critical API calls, like CreateFile and so on. Fixing all this bugs is never as easy as adding 'cmp eax,ERROR_CODE' after each invoke.
Main reason why Fresh was crashing is that I recently made many changes in its internal structure, but they were absolutely necessary. I still don't know how each detail work, sometimes I did damage when I tried to fix or do some cleanup. Fortunatelly I try to do a lot of testing. Anyway with every bugfix/change I understand things better and better, so now I can say I know Fresh source quite well.
But of course I'm not going to ignore your suggestion, I will revise code and add more error checking.

Glad to hear that

Almost everyone forgets about checking return values in assembly nowadays. It's allright in examples which purpose to teach newbies, but not in code.

IMO every API call should be errorchecked (i hesitate only about ExitProcess, can it retrun?)

The most part of debugger is working good, only APIs are causing trouble. I'll try to give a look.

Hopefully this is last version before first alpha release.

Changes since last version:

  • Fixes in Code Completion behaviour.
  • Changed behaviour of 'New from template' function. Now dialog
    box asks user for projects directory, creates if (if it don't
    exists), copies all files there, and opens .FPR file.
  • Added more error checking in StrLib.
  • Added ExtractExt, ExtractDir, DirExists and CreateNestedDir
    functions (fileutils.asm).
  • Added "select all" function (Ctrl+A key).
  • Fixed bug in label collector - it was crashing when source didn't
    contain any symbols Smile.
  • Now default form template is kept inside program's data section
    instead of separate file. This was needed because now Fresh can
    create new forms only from this template. ("system couldn't find
    specified file" bug is fixed too).


you can it them here:

That's because templates aren't still updated to new macros (only Win32 console application is). I will update them before releasing next version.

Debugging debugger:
When stepping over an API call, the function WaitForDebugEvent send a DbgEventExitProcess and fresh debugger acts accordingly. IIRC, WaitForDebugEvent doesn´t allow to step into APIs.
Actually Fresh's OnStepInto ( F7 ) and OnStepOver ( F8 ) are both doing the same (same piece of code) so effectively there's no StepOver function.

Help:
1. It will be interesting if someone test it under win98, because I remember previous fresh versions working.
2. Where can I find previous versions of Fresh?

p.s. Thanks to JohnFound ( are you still reading the forums? ) for the debugger. What a nice piece of code John Wink
