tripped up by packaging

June 16, 2008

Sorry to everyone that has had a bad experience with downloading tiggit mail 0.1.48 today. Here is some kind of an explanation: I have changed the packaging of tiggit mail so that it consists of a core application (multiMail.cod) and a supporting library (tiggitVersionWrapper.cod).

The reason for this is to allow me to use classes and methods that are only available in later versions of the API, whilst providing an application that works on older handheld models. The newer features are wrapped and stubbed within the old API so that there can be one consistent core code base.

Anyhow, to cut a long story short, I misunderstood the way that the rapc compiler works and posted versions of tiggit mail that all relied on tiggitVersionWrapper42 which was only available within the Curve  download.

This is now fixed, and I have just tested that all the download links work. The only difference at the moment is that 8000 series handhelds and later can resize images when they are attached to an email. So, if you receive an email with a jpg attached on your Curve you can click to make it fit to the height of the screen. This does not work on a 7000 series device.

This is a foundation on which the wireless API will be used in future versions.

Once again, sorry if you have been frustrated by poor downloads today, and particularly the typing error in the weblink.
