Also, now scrollbar arrows don't look right for me - seemed ok in rc2...?



Nothing has changed. What distro/theme is that?

All that gtk theming is not very well defined, there is a lot of heirestics involved. I guess we will have to resolve theme issues one by one...

Using XFCE (a slightly thinner Gnome window manager), this was the "H2O-gtk2-Saphire" (sic) theme.

I switched themes just now (to a nicer looking one called "Glossy P"), and U++ matches its scrollbars perfectly. Looks really good.
Dunno what this means!

BTW, Firefox goes nuts and eats 100% CPU forever (it seems) when changing themes while it's open. Poor coding eh? Wink

This means that U++ look heurestics fail for H2O-gtk2-Saphire, but work well for "Glossy P" Smile

The real reason is that gtk theming system is one big mess and theme engine developers use everything to make it even more messy... Smile

As U++ has to deal with both Win32 and GTK theming (in future, with MacOS X as well), mapping between GTK theme engine entities and U++ look entities is not 1:1. There come heurestics that are trying what GTK provides and make something reasonable out of it...

Trying to build TheIDE under Windows with GCC (MinGW) surprises me.

Building with the UPP-included GCC 3.42 works buts says:

Linking...
(option '-O 2' ignored)
___main: duplicate
-> used: libmingw32.a:gccmain.o:1
-> discarded: libgcc.a:__main.o:1

Trying to build with GCC 4.11 fails saying:

Linking...
...\MinGW411\bin\ld.exe: crt2.o: No such file: No such file or directory
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

Trying to build with GCC 4.12 fails saying:

Linking...
...\MinGW412\bin\ld.exe: cannot find -lws2_32
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

As far as I remember Upp 2007.1rc2 built fine as with GCC 3.42 as with GCC 4.11. (GCC 4.12 was not yet available.)

This is standard, this is just uld's warning, in fact caused by problem in mingw (duplicate definition of main).

BTW, speaking about it, future support of mingw might get a bit problematic, as mingw does not support TLS variables, which is something that new (not in 2007.1 releases) U++ allocator depends on to improve performance.... GCC performance will therefore likely be crippled.
