Re: MSVCRT Linkage Compatibility Question

We asked our MSVC team member to take a look at your issue. He did some research and determined that building with a statically linked MSVCRT is not a supported configuration. For reference, very few C++ projects would support this setup. Static CRT linkage creates a separate heap for every module. ...

Re: Debian 12 has same selection problem as Mate

I use Debian 12 with the default GNOME desktop as my development environment and I have not experienced any problems. Did you try using MATE on Debian 12, and is that where you encountered problems like you found on Ubuntu?

Re: setTabTextColor() no longer working

I tested your example code and the setTabTextColor() call did change the color of the tab text as expected. Since your code has dependencies on other parts of your program, I used our journal entry 19 and replaced the connect() at the end of the MainWindow constructor with the following: connect(pb_...

Re: Migration from MFC to CopperSpice

My company did attempt a hybrid MFC - Copperspice application similar to what I think is described in the videos you linked. ... In the end we split the application in parts, where certain workflows where handed off to a separate process. That worked well for us and allowed us to migrate gradually,...

Re: Moving to C++20

Thank you for contributing to this conversation and explaining your point of view. We really do appreciate user input. We are going to chat with a few other C++ committee members before making a decision about when to implement the transition to a newer version of C++.

Re: Moving to C++20

Just looking at GCC, they started adding C++20 features back in version 8 and more was added with each release. The majority of features are present in GCC 12, except for a few things related to modules. Support for C++23 started to appear in GCC 9 with the majority appearing by GCC 13. (1) As of C+...

Re: Reddit post Qt license

While the Free Software Foundation recommends using the latest version LGPL v3 I thought that LGPL v2.1 would be compatible with CopperSpice. Yes, they do usually recommend LGPL 3 but the FSF is looking to address other concerns. In the real world, true open source developers prefer LGPL 2.1 when i...

Re: Debian 12 Bookworm CopperSpice 1.8.2 Binaries

I took some time to read your “Debian 12 guide” and I would strongly suggest changing several items. Documentation can be messy and some of what you said could be misunderstood by new developers. (1) Even though Ubuntu is based on Debian, you simply can not assume that a Ubuntu program will work on ...
