Hello, you people walking under the Sun
GTop 1.0.2 "The Failsafe Release" has been made.
* Major new features:
- This is the first release of GTop that has at least minimal
support for Solaris and other systems that are not yet
- This means, if LibGTop doesn't have some feature, GTop will
ignore this feature - but not attempt to divide by zero or
do other bad things.
* What you'll get:
- A GTop that works with the `stub' sysdeps code of LibGTop;
that is, you can at least see the Filesystem Usage.
* Who needs to upgrade:
- People on Solaris and other systems without a LibGTop port
were you were not able to use GTop at all before.
- All people who want to help me with the Solaris port of LibGTop.
* What it is not:
- This release is only interesting for people who were not able
to use GTop at all before.
- There is no reason to upgrade if you already have a working GTop.
- A GTop that really "works" on Solaris; until the Solaris port
of LibGTop is ready it will only display things that are
already implemented and ignore the rest.
* Technical Details:
- On startup, GTop checks which features LibGTop has on the
- In the properties dialog, all features that aren't supported
by LibGTop are set insensitive and ignored by the code.
- It does no longer attempt to divide by zero if LibGTop does
not provide certain features.
Keep on dreaming you people walking under the Sun ...
Solaris LibGTop is coming soon,
