This week was the quiet after the 0.1.3 release and was dedicated to cleaning up after the release and to fix some small issues -- especially in cargo-ui.

Blog Posts & Project News

Olivier and Simon blogged about how SixtyFPS Viewer can be used to implement GUIs for scripts.

SixtyFPS UI Library

  • Features
    • Viewer: Added way to execute commands on callbacks ( 82a1cc)
    • Added a no-frame property to Window (#560)

      Thanks Robert Broketa @rybertm!

    • TouchArea: Grab the mouse regardless of the button (#559)
  • Documentation changes:
    • Provide a modern introduction to the language reference ( e3ce13)
    • Mention DYLD_FRAMEWORK_PATHin the Qt install docs ( f7193d)

      cc #566

    • Provide a slightly simpler language reference intro sentence ( db60a5)
  • Demos
    • Fix sysinfo_macos.sh with mount points that have spaces in their path ( 912913)
  • Fixes
    • Don't hard-code ScrollArea's viewport size ( 19ce55)

      The Flickable should already have sane default

      But we need to make sure that the default binding don't override bindings set with aliases. So we must use BindingsMap::set_binding_if_not_set which sets the priority properly

      Closes #581
