HMG 3.1.0

Dear HMG family,

I am very happy to announce the new version of HMG. In this version HMG is upgraded with Unicode compatibility with the sole and untiring contribution of Dr. Claudio Soto. When I had requested him about the implementation of Unicode in HMG few weeks back, without any inhibition or hesitation he had readily accepted to do the hectic job of revamping the HMG Win32 API source code. Since this is a major upgrade I had numbered this version 3.1.0.

Personally for me, it is a LONG time dream coming true. Now I can write applications having interface in my own native language or any human language! My personal thanks and credit goes to our friend Claudio.

Since this is a test version, it is not suggested for a live situation.

HMG 3.1.0 (2012-11-25) can be downloaded from here (40.70 MB)

Alternatively you can download from sourceforge.net too.

If you want to disable Unicode altogether, please delete/remark the following line in source/SET_COMPILE_HMG_UNICODE.ch and rebuild HMG library.

#define COMPILE_HMG_UNICODE

Code: Select all

- HMG 3.1.0 (Test) 2012/11/25
   - Major update to HMG
      - Unicode (UTF8) compatibility. (Solely contributed by Dr. Claudio Soto)
         - With this upgraded version HMG applications can be made available in all human languages. It is required to set 'Encoding->Encoding in UTF8' in Notepad++ for all the source code files which contain strings in languages using Unicode characters.
         - New Main.UNI.Demo in samples folder for Unicode based demo in Tamil language.
   - Update to BosTaurus Graphics Library version 1.02 (contributed by Dr. Claudio Soto)
      - Updated BT_BitmapSaveFile() fuction, now save images in the formats: BMP, GIF, JPG, TIF and PNG.
      - Updated BosTaurus-FunctionsReferenceGuide.PDF with changes made.
      - New Demo11 in hfcl\samples\BosTaurus folder.
   - Fixed HFCL HMG_HPDF TTF font loading bug. 
Enjoy!
