SlickEdit® / Delete key does not remove entries from Drop-Down menus - v28.0.1.0
« Last post by JimmieC on February 06, 2024, 04:54:52 PM »
MRU entries in the drop-down menus in the "Find/Find in Files/Replace/Replace In Files" are not removed with the Delete key. This is a feature that I used a lot in previous version of SE. The drop-down menu is less useful when old entries create history pollution.

Other drop-down menus may have also lost the Delete function as well. Not sure.

I keep getting the following message, what does it mean and how do I correct/remove it?

fatal: detected dubious ownership in repository at '//wsl.localhost/Ubuntu/home/jdechirico/git/Build_840/ZFPE'

I've uploaded the following 3 installers that I would like you to try on one of your problematic machines. Let us know which ones work or crash.

se_28000006_mac-intel-2023-11-04.dmg  Source 11/04/2023
    Built with older compiler libraries
    Doesn't string lib UTF-8 recognition change

se_28000006_mac-intel-2023-11-24.dmg  Source 11/24/2023
    Built with newer compiler libraries  (XCode 15)
    Doesn't string lib UTF-8 recognition change

se_28000006_mac-intel-2023-11-24-with-utf8-change.dmg  Source 11/24/2023 with UTF-8 change
    Built with newer compiler libraries  (XCode 15)
    Has string lib UTF-8 recognition change which could effect startup

Follow these steps to download them:

* go to this link:
* Double click on the "SlickEdit Pro 2023 (v28)" folder
* Double click on the "other" folder. This should show you the above list of installers.
* Download and install each installer and post here with your results.

Note that all of these installers go to the same "SlickEditPro2023" folder. Backup/rename this folder before installing each of them.

I expect the 11/04/2023 installer to work fine. Not sure about the other two but these tests will let us know what next steps we need to take.
Features and/or Improvements / I want toml format supported

Toml is a widely used config file format. I hope to support this format in slickedit. Thanks
With regard to "compiler libraries":

On the MacPro2,1 both g++ 13.2.0 (= the current GCC release) and clang++ 17.0.6 (= the current LLVM release) are installed in the "El Capitan" partition, they both cleanly compile (-march=core2) & link my programs using their native compiler libraries (libgcc/libstdc++ & compiler-rt/libc++ respectively), and the resulting binaries run cleanly.

On the MacBookPro6,1: in the "High Sierra" partition g++ 13.2.0 also compiles (-march=westmere) & links viable executables, while in the "Big Sur" partition both g++ 13.2.0 and LLVM clang++ 17.0.6 do the same, using their native compiler libraries.

So, for these specific popular compilers, their current compiler libraries do not cause problems, at least if the compilers & their libraries are themselves compiled explicitly for use on potentially-old systems.  [Apple does the opposite:  it methodically obsoletes old computers by enabling slightly-newer CPU instructions in select macOS releases; meanwhile, Linux & Windows 10 run cleanly on old core2 boxes.]

Thanks for the detailed information. I'll need to think about this and try some things out. We don't have those specific mac machines and since v28.0.0 runs, upgraded compiler libraries could be the problem.
SlickEdit® / SE Pro 28.0.1 always crashes instantly on MacPro2,1 & MacBookPro6,1

The machines are:
  • a MacPro2,1 with two "Clovertown" X5365 Xeons (-march=core2) running macOS 10.11.6 "El Capitan", and
  • a MacBookPro6,1 with an "Arrandale" i7-640M (-march=westmere) running either macOS 10.13.6 "High Sierra" or (via OCLP) macOS 11.7.10 "Big Sur".
If invoked via the command line (= Terminal), I get an immediate "Segmentation fault: 11" message.  Clicking on the S|E icon just generates an error report.  No window appears, either way.
SE Pro 28.0.0 runs normally on these boxes, as did all previous SE releases.  SE Pro 28.0.1 runs normally on all 4 of my other Macs, with their assorted x86_64 & ARM64 CPUs and various versions of macOS & Linux.

I have attached crash reports from both failing 28.0.1 installations.  (I did not gather the crash data from the OCLP-aided Big Sur installation, because OCLP installations are inherently somewhat dodgy.)

I think the information in,19357.msg77378.html#msg77378 (adding in a link to the hotfixes) would be good to have in a forum sticky.
On Linux, it's sort of worse. It never stops. However, if you click on the message box OK button when it's visible it usually stops.

This issue is in 28.0.0 and 28.0.1.

Fixed for 28.0.2 (not date set yet).  This is not hot fixable.
Confirm that it stops by itself, but sometimes can take almost half a minute here  ;)
