News / HyperNext Studio v4 development restarted

HyperNext Studio news September 2021

HN4 development has restarted due to HN5 progress going much slower than expected.

HN v4.1 for Microsoft Windows should be released in about a months time, hopefully mid November.

Although HN5 has many advantages, including being able to run on many more Operating Systems, HN4 does actually work right now(albeit with bugs).
Most users just want to create some software, so releasing updates to HN4 will be the focus in the near term.
However, HN5 is still being developed in parallel with HN4.

 
HN4 Roadmap

HN4 is currently developed with RealBasic 2008R1 which only builds x32 for Windows XP to 10, and up to OS X Yosemite - there is no Linux.

Xojo 2021(was RealBasic) only builds for Windows 7 and later, plus for the latest versions of MacOS and Linux.
It also builds both x32 and x64.

However, converting HN4 to Xojo_2021 is a process with a few stages.
There are huge differences between how graphics, text fields etc work since 2008.
Note, HN4 uses some commercial plugins that complicates its development.

In theory HN4 should ultimately run on the latest versions of Windows, MacOS and Linux.

Development Progress / August 2021

Here is a brief progress report on HN5 development for the month of August 2021.

The aim is to get the Chart demo project running inside HN5 Creator IDE.

The development is being carried out on a Windows 7 x64 machine with regular testing of HN5 on Linux(Ubuntu), Raspberry Pi and OS X.

The development language is Free Pascal which should ensure HN5 will be able to run on a variety of older and newer Operating Systems.
The main targets being Windows, Linux and OS X.


HN5 CREATOR


Runtime Engine

The runtime engine's interrupts have been greatly improved are now working properly on the Windows platform. They still  trigger the correct  buttons scripts and are more responsive.

The canavas control has more functions implemented.

In the picture below, the canvas shows as black due to a bug in the Edit Fields accepting text from the PUT command.
This bug prevents test data generated via the Test Data button appearing in the X & Y edit field so the colored bars do not show.

Unfortunately this tiime there is no image for Linux Raspberry Pi(Buster) as the new interrupt threading causes an exception and there was not enough time left to debug it.

General / Re: Does HyperNext 5.0 has a GitHub repository yet?

Hi, no not at the moment.

A while back I did make an account at both Github and Sourceforge but still have to do more research into them as I've never used them before.

Once the first version of HN 5 is made public then I'll definitely put the various Free Pascal projects with full source code, resource files etc onto a repository.

Runtime Engine

The runtime engine now loads the Chart project's start-up scripts and runs them correctly as shown in the images below.

Raspbery Pi(Buster): http://www.tigabyte.com/Screenshots/07-2021/RPi_Chart_Running.png


The Draw Chart button now triggers its interrupt properly and starts executing the canvas drawing scripts.
These canvas drawing scripts are still being debugged.

Getting Started / Re: Registering v3.83
« Last post by Malkom on July 12, 2021, 07:14:15 AM »
Hello,

HyperNext v4.01, and all 4.x versions do not need registering as they give full functionality.

The 'Register' item on the 'Guide' menu bar is simply there because I forgot to remove it - it does nothing.

I hope its working fine for you.
