I have uploaded a patch to Calmira fixing the bugs that surfaced not 24
hours after it's release. Go to the Calmira download page to download. I
have also updated the main download archive.


I finally figured out how the laws of physics apply to software. I
translated it to Delphi:

procedure Application.Release;
  with Application do
    FirstRetailRelease := FinalBetaRelease;

Most of the bugs are related to last-minute hacks before uploading the
program... So the upcoming patch will contain the following bug fixes:

+ Macro's should work again.

  It turned out macros were defective from 3.0 onward!
  The macro handler relied upon a specific order of the
  desktop's menu items(!) This made it very easy to corrupt
  functionality if the menu was changed in any way, which of
  course, is what I did...

+ Computer windows will show correct number of columns.

  I accidentally deleted a statement in the resize code
  when I added the statusbar.

+ Icon windows will size to correct height again.

  I resized the statusbar by two pixels, but forgot to account
  for the change in size in the icon window's sizing code.

+ Network menu items disabled when no network present.

  Just as the network buttons are not visible when no network
  is installed, the same should apply to the menu items.
