The Bat! v2.02 Christmas Edition

The Bat!redbox informēja, ka tik tikko ir parādījusies The Bat! v2.02 Christmas Edition 3 272KiB. Tā ir kā tradīcija, ka neilgi pirms Ziemassvētkiem iznāk Christmas Edition.

Izmaiņu saraksts kā vienmēr ir diezgan liels – vīri ir pacentušies godam. Vienīgi pēdējā laikā esmu novērojis nelielu migrāciju – vieni pāriet uz citiem komerciāliem produktiem citi uz bezmaksas, piemēram, Mozilla Thunderbird. Tā kā mani pagaidām apmierina The Bat!, tad nedaudz paskatīšos un pagaidīšu, kad uzlabos zibensputnu, jo pagaidām tam vēl nav tik daudz iespēju un galvenais – pārāk bremzīgs e-pasta klients. Tas gan ir raksturīgs visiem Mozillas produktiem. Laiks visu saliks pa vietām.

What’s new in The Bat! 2.02 CE?

    she`ka: tas ir Mozillas bugs/nepilniiba – ja serverii nav korekti nodefineets kaadam failu tipam atbilst dotais fails ar paplashinaajumu, tad jamais ver valjaa text/plain.
    tas bija viens no bugiem par kuriem es balsoju, lai aatraak izlabo/atrod risinaajumu. tagad kaut kaadaa mozilla versijaa buus iestraadaats workarounds un mozilla pati meegjinaas peec headeriem noteikt kaa doto failu atveert.

    Man kolēģe (jā, sieviete) pati!!! izvēlējas Mozilla Thunderbird un ir apmierināta ar to. Neesmu redzējis, ka būtu lēns, vai kāda iespēja trūktu… (normāliem cilvēkiem nevajag pārcilvēciskas fīčas). Vairāki accounti POP3, IMAP un filtri daudz – viss strādā oki doki.
    Par mozillu vēlreiz – nu nebremzē viņa. Par to jau ir runāts. Varbūt, ka Internet Explorer ielādējas ātrak, bet tas jau ir iebūvēts! pašā Windows un sēž visu laiku atmiņā, tāpēc arī ielādējas ātrāk. Bet citādā ziņā – mozilla galīgi nebremzē. Pietam viņu var noslīpēt vēl tā, ka strādā ļoti ātri – pats kompilējot. Uz sava darba kompīša, kur ir Linux/Unix salīdzināju sevis kompilēto un binary versiju – ātrums ļoti atškiras. Mana ./configure — … rindiņa aizņēma ~ 5-6 rindiņas konsolē. Visu vajag tweak’ot, veči, un tad viss ir kedās.
    coolynx, kāpēc Tu saki, ka Thunderbird ir bremzīgs? Uz cik tad kompiem esi testējis? Nu saki ko gribi, es neesmu redzējis ka bremzē. Pat uz 805Mhz, 64Mb ram nembremzē (tas ir lēnākais PC uz kura esmu redzējis Thunderbird). Nezinu, nezinu…

    Kāds nezin, cik labs ir FB atbalsts W3C DOMam ?
    A ta es skatos, nokačāju no W3C “DOM Conformance Test Suite, Level 1 Core”, IE 5.5 izlaiž ar kļūdām ECMA testus, a vot Firebirds 0.7 vispār nelaiž. 😛

    Es arii saku, ka Peerkonputns bremzee. Atveram putnu, viss OK nebremzee, noliekam uz taskbara, daram kaut ko citu, peec kaada laika celjam augshaa to putnu no taskbara, un tad tas notiek – ir konkreeta bremze. Vai arii otrs variants – putns, taa seezhot, saak bremzeet visu PC. Izmeegjinaats gan uz PIII, gan PIV – bremzee abos vienaadiigi. Tas viss bija ar 0.3 versiju.

    djuhiro: tas ir loģiski – paskaties ar task manageri, cik viš atmiņā sēž, un pēc tam atstāj to backgroundā kādu laiku. un tad paskaties, cik daudz no tā zvēra ir viruālajā atmiņā. Loģiski, ka bremzēs, kamēr to no VM izvilks. Tas nu jāatzīst, ka atmiņa tam putnam patīk, bet windowsa tendence visu pagefailā saraxtīt – lūk arī rezultāts. Uz linux tas vēl nau tik traģiski.
