GUI-Tools: EVFSGUI: Do not run more than 32 smbclient.exe at the same time

File size: 15.2 KB
Line 
1ToDo for 2.x:
2- Major code refactoring (partly done)
3- Debug on/off option is badly implemented (rework required)
4- Create Icon. stem in order to ease maintenance of icons
5- Fix endless loop if neither EVFS nor Netdrive is installed
6  under all conditions
7- Enable WPS integration code (partly done)
8- Enable and complete printer support code
9- Support server based logon scripts (requires REXX rpc library,
10  partly done) (works in a separate utility right now)
11- Passive connections/double connection detection does not seem to work
12  properly (it does, it is Turbofolder that is creating the 100% CPU load)
13 
14Version 2.1-beta
15- Added: On-the-fly browsing on remote servers
16- Added: Files can be "opened" during on-the-fly browsing (a mountpoint
17         is created first) - does not work properly yet!
18- Added: Set icons of browsed files according to extender types (only most
19         often used types (EXE, OOO, PDF, generic multimedia icons - no WPS
20         mechanism for that)
21- Added: Refresh display every 60 seconds in order to reflect changes
22         done on the command line while EVFSGUI is open
23- Added: "Detach all" menuitem in context menu
24- Added: "Refresh" menuitem in context menu
25- Fixed: Do not flash during refresh
26- Fixed: Workaround for uninitialized advance.!alwaysmp
27- Fixed: Do not crash on bad return value from *RxGetMount() in GetChildren
28- Fixed: Do not run more than 32 smbclient.exe concurrently (EVFSGUI needs
29         Paul Ratcliffe's pr1util.dll now)
30         
31Version 2.0.5 2010-04-23
32- Fixed: Passive connections were not removed when the same connection was
33         loaded using a profile
34- Fixed: Missing NLV message if wrong file was dropped onto the left pane
35
36Version 2.0.4 2010-04-09
37- Fixed: Connection details doubled since MEMLEN etc removal.
38- Changed: Some parts of the code were refactored
39
40Version 2.0.3 2010-02-23
41- Added: Open mountpoint as WPS object moved to a separate thread in order
42         not to block the EVFSGUI main window while waiting for a folder
43         on a slow connection to open.
44- Added: Double-click also opens a mountpoint as WPS folder         
45- Added: Debug ON also makes hidden columns in connections details visible
46- Fixed: "Abort" button on progress window was not NLV enabled
47- Fixed: The NLV subroutine now properly falls back to the builtin
48         (bracketed) message files in case NO (not even an english
49         message file) can be found.
50- Fixed: Do not crash in Autostart dialog when no NLV file was found.         
51- Fixed: Open mountpoint as WPS object fully workable
52- Fixed: Open mountpint now has a consistent behaviour with other actions
53- Changed: Open context menu item enabled for testing (experimental)
54- Changed: Show wait pointer while opening WPS folder
55- Changed: CltInit: Now scans wellknown locations for Samba binaries
56           (faster at least in theory)
57- Changed: In the 1.5.0 GA version of the plugin the MEMLEN, LOGFILE and
58           LOGLEVEL tokens are removed in order to address the problem with
59           EVFSRxGetMount() return strings - several changes in EVFSGUI were
60           required to address this change in the plugin.
61NOTE: This changes makes older profile files, both .ndc and .evp incompatible.
62      EVFSGUI can read old profiles, but only saves new profiles. The Netdrive
63      GUI does not have such a feature. Older profiles may easily be migrated
64      by editing with a text editor and removing the MEMLEN, LOGLEVEL and
65      LOGFILE tokens from the resource strings manually.
66           
67Version 2.0.2 2010-01-25
68- Changed: Remove Win95/98/IBM Peer length limits from smbtree.vrs.
69- Added: EVFSRxGetMount() returns a maximum string length of 255 for
70         resdata, if workgroup+server+share+username+password > 52 the
71         resulting resdata string will be truncated. Several workarounds
72         in ParseResourceData() added in order not completely fall over.
73
74Version 2.0.1 2010-01-12
75- Added: Alex T.: Use 'Combined' font on DBCS systems
76- Fixed: Alex T.: Default fonts are set correctly

78- Fixed: Alex T.: Various fixes and enhancements to window resize logic
79- Fixed: Alex T.: FWidth/margin got lost on the expose list
80- Fixed: Herwig B.: Another speed up in resize logic (use marginx2 instead of
81                    42 times margin * 2)
82

111- Fixed: Detect missing upcase tables (and don't fall over)
112- Fixed: If nothing is found, network neighbourhood should be empty (and

205
206Version 1.3.7 - changes not relevant for 2.0
207
208Version 1.3.6
209!Fixed: When connecting to a complete server, the workgroup got lost during the
210        connecting process.
211Version 1.3.5
212!Fixed: Error in profile file parsing logic could lead to double entries
213        for LOGFILE and LOGLEVEL (possibly having side effects on EASUPPORT)
214Version 1.3.4
215!Fixed: Readonly connection option did not work (was not implemented)
216Version 1.3.3
217*Changed: Provide better message box for profile saving (to explain rather
218          odd behavior
219Version 1.3.2
220!Fixed: No more double drive letters in the drive letters list after mounting
221*Changed: "Workgroup/ Domain:" back to "Workgroup:"
222Version 1.3.1
223+Added: Explanation for errors in case mount operation fails
224*Changed: "Workgroup:" to "Workgroup/ Domain:"
225Version 1.3
226+Added: Support for the (new) ndpsmb logging feature
227+Added: Support for the (old) ndpsmb logging feature (deactivated)
228+Added: Save "titlebar" color across sessions
229*Changed: Merge Alex Taylor's and Herwig B.'s latest changes
230*Changed: Also display status data in hintarea when mouse cursor is over
231          the "current resources" pane
232!Fixed: Tab order in "new resource" pane
233!Fixed: Help did not work for advanced window in NLV versions
234 
235Version 1.2.1 (2009-04, Herwig B.)
236+Added: Try to restart EVFSCTL.EXE once in case it is not running.
237+Added: Implemented support for error messages depending on return codes
238        in case of failed operations as provided from ndpsmb.dll version
239        1.5alpha2 or better.
240*Changed: Move status data of current connection into container caption
241          (Makes more sense there).
242*Changed: Show version notice in status area (at the bottom now)
243!Fixed: In case the connect operation fails on a newly created mount point,
244        the mountpoint is removed again, instead of leaving it in a zombie
245        status. That makes sense as EVFSGUI does not support the creation
246        and maintenance of empty mountpoints (the underlying EVFS (including
247        the REXX interface) supports this, but the GUI does not).
248
249Version 1.2.1 (2009-05, Alex Taylor)
250!Fixed: Main window wasn't set visible if INI file was missing.
251!Fixed: Corrected English, formatting h in helpfile.
252*Added: Better program icon.
253
254Version 1.2 (2008-10)
255*Updated: Finally all the help files are updated to reflect all changes
256          (en, de and fr)
257!Workaround: It appears that for unknown reasons the SysDriveMap() function
258        hangs if it is used with the "FREE" and "REMOTE" flags, after it is
259        called for several times. I noticed that after I received Yuri's
260        latest Samba plugin. The problem disappears if EVFS is not installed.
261        This should be tested (and fixed) by Vitali in EVFS (probably).
262
263+Added: In debug mode the output in the console window has time stamps now
264+Added: Display name and version of the used IFS on "empty" mountpoints
265+Added: Button on the autoload window (the -nogui GUI) to abort reconnection
266+Added: Server entry field is now a drop down combo box holding all servers
267        to which connections were made with)
268+Added: Alternatively support NetDrive for SMB shares instead of EVFS (using
269        undocumented -ndfs switch)
270*Updated: All message files
271!Fixed: Bug in my autoload code
272!Fixed: Bug in my -ndfs code (spotted by Guillaume)
273
274+Added: Autostart EVFS connections feature via Startup folder object
275+Added: -nogui switch (only show a small message window)
276+Added: -autoclose switch (close eVFSGUI after 3 seconds)
277+Added: Load profile specified on the commandline
278+Added: Edit via context menu for mountpoints with exactly one resource
279+Added: Context menu equivalents to the Detach and Unmount pushbuttons
280+Added: The content of the EF_NETWORK field (aka workgroup) is saved to the
281        eVFSGUI.INI as this changes only on rare occasions (saved me a lot of
282        typing during testing)
283+Added: Do not attach drive if has already been attached (from TODO list A.T.)
284!Fixed: Profiles supported plain passwords whereas EVFS provided encrypted
285        passwords in profile files
286!Fixed: eVFSGUI initializes itself properly now
287!Fixed: eVFSGUI would hang after displaying the message "no control program
288        found"
289!Fixed: Cleanup signal stuff ("return" after a signal is a bad thing to do!)
290!Fixed: INI file was not closed after leaving eVFSGUI
291!Fixed: When several mount points exist and the first one is removed the click
292        event routine was executed after the corresponded record was already
293        removed -> eVFSGUI crashed. As a fix the record is validated before an
294        attempt to access its data is done. If it does not exist anymore the
295        event routine is terminated without further action.
