Java SI GUI UI

Hi,

Started to develop the UI today 🙂 That is todays work. First part is to have all the settings I need and a UI for that, then download, then manager and then installer. Hope you like it 😉

PS: The UI (should theoretically [REFERENCE] be style-able via CSS). Hope it does not look to awful yet 😉

Java SI-GUI -> Downloading works

Hi,

Just a small update: Downloading works now –> PASTEBIN (Do not worry, this is not the final UI 😉 )

I am still thinking whether to code the UI in JavaFX or Swing. Anyway, I am thinking of a tabbed UI

  • “Download” –> Downloading
  • “Install” –> Installation
  • “Manage” –> Create shortcuts & delete installations (on Windows a “Try to fix problems” (which installs the MS C++ redistributables shipped with the current version). I think IN VERY FUTURE VERSIONS Jay’s cleanup script would be nice to implement
  • “Settings” –> Obvious I guess 😉

This should simplify everything a bit 🙂

SI GUI Java – Archive Downloads

Hi,

So this time all the available daily and archive dowloads (on page 2, there are 707!)

First step towards a better download detection

Java SI-GUI

As you can see, Java SI-GUI will be able to detect all active thinderboxes automatically.

*active -> Having a downloadable file in the “current” folder. Just a small step, but progress 😉 [Detection needs under 1 second]

SI GUI got SI GUI

Hello everyone,

I am neither dead not did I abandon LibreOffice :). I simply lacking time. Anyway SI-GUI just got SI-GUI. So “LibreOffice Server Install GUI” (which I guess was against 3rd party tools branding guideline) got “Separate Install GUI” (Thanks for the name BTW 😉 ). It has the same bugs (and maybe due to the name change a bit more).

I admit I try to monetize SI GUI a bit, in the sidebar of my blog you can find links to my Amazon wish list or a direct link to gift cards. On the download page as well as on the sidebar there is a “paypal donate” button. Feel free to use them (Paypal has a quite high fee). This software will ever be free and I will continue to support it in the future, no matter if you use them or not.

Thanks for not closing the page up to now, here is one last thing. Close before Christmas I collected the stats for SI-GUI again: LINK

 

This blog post and the changes @ SI-GUI have been planned to go live before Christmas, but thanks to university I did not find time.

PLEASE SPREAD THE WORLD ABOUT THIS

I managed to get the update working, but it installs as a “new” program. So please manually uninstall

  • “Seperate Install GUI” (Spelling error – Sorry)
  • “Server Install GUI” (After updating to “Separate Install GUI”)
  • And any version which has a ([NUMBER]) in it (like “Server Install GUI (2)”)

It does not harm, if you keep using this, but they won’t get updated. So “Separate Install GUI” (as seen in the following screenshot) is the “future” version of SI-GUI

I am looking forward to see your comments. I will publlish the changes to git after publishing this post 🙂

SI-GUI stats

Hi,

So right after the bug-hunting session (ok, I am a bit late 😉 ) I pulled the statistics today, and I want to share with you 3 things 🙂 [Statistic is available here]

Global bughunt
It was global

Well, as far as I can tell from the SI-GUIstats it was a global success – with France as top nation, congrats Sophie and all the french QA team.

Downloadstats
4.3 a1 is #2

I do not know why you downloaded 4.1.5.3 so often,  but as of today alpha 1 of our next release is one of the most downloaded versions since we make the statistic

Good testers!

So, what do tester test? It’s great to see so many of you testing master and the test builds. This helps us to bring out a good “Fresh” branch (lb => latest branch). It is great to see you on the “Stable” branch as well (“ob” => Older branch) to catch anything there as well.

Pie cake where you can see all versions downloaded
Yes, we do release some versions 😉

Thanks for testing so many versions and helppacks :). You know, we always tell QA is not difficult so if you are on Windows, feel free to use SI-GUI, and please share your stats. It’s nice to see your product is used 😀
