Hello everybody, we are pleased to release ForeUI V2.50 today.  From this version a brand new auto updater of ForeUI will be available.

Auto Updater

Since we update ForeUI frequently, an updater that can download and install updates automatically is really useful.  From V2.50, the updater will be shipped with every downloadable package.  When you launch ForeUI, it will detect the new version from Internet.   If new version exist, ForeUI will ask whether to update, if you choose “Yes, Sure”, ForeUI will quit and the updater will be launched.  The updater can work under Windows, Mac OS X and Linux systems.

The updater will download and verify the update package, then install it automatically.  It will definitely save your time :-)

With this updater, releasing minor version for bug fixings become much easier.  If we confirm a serious bug, we can fix it immediately and push the update package to all users.

Fixed Bugs:

This version include three bug fixings, they are:

  • Bug_0246: The exported DHTML does not respect the ImageBox’s background color and opacity. (Thank John Giddings for reporting)
  • Bug_0247: If an ImageBox is embedded into Tabs, it can not be displayed in the exported DHTML. (Thank Boris for reporting)
  • Bug_0248: Copy selected element(s) into clipboard and paste into Microsoft Word, the transparent background is black. (Thank Tim for reporting)
    The figure below shows the effect of the fixing:

Extended Free Upgrade Period
