Riena 1.1.0.M5 is available. We have quit a number of new features that we are note in New and Noteworthy over here
Of course the milestone is built with Eclipse SDK 3.5M5 and is now available also for Mac Cocoa (not only for Mac Carbon).
While it has lot of good and new stuff we noticed a few flaw and problems in this milestone:
- MasterDetail Widget and Ridget is only a prototyp (not a finished implementation) and produces some exceptions on the
Mac platform (it runs and does everything but you see some exceptions in the console)
- Mac Cocoa platform is new and seems to create more exceptions than the Carbon platform (at least in Riena)
- Still despite all exceptions you might see a warning dialog but the example app continues to run.
- These exceptions do not happen on the Windows platform
We will of course address these issues in M6, but we wanted to get this milestone out. So needless to say that all
people that are doing projects or use Riena in production stick with 1.0.0 and only use 1.1.0.M5 to learn and experiment
with new features in 1.1.0.M5.
You can use Riena Targetplatform 1.1.0.M5 with Eclipse 3.4. or Eclipse 3.5.x. One restriction from the Eclipse IDE
itself is that Eclipse IDE Mac Carbon only runs with a Target Platform Mac Carbon and the same is true for Mac Cocoa. So
you cannot run a Cocoa Target from a Carbon IDE and vica versa, but that is a restriction from SWT.

Upload was these morning, so the mirrors are still syncing the zip files and download might be slow this morning.
If you find additional problems dont hesitate to write back, open a bugzilla. Positive or negative feedback about the
new stuff is welcomed.
