December 18, 2002
- Version 2.0 of Rexx/Wrapper released. The main feature of this release is
the ability to wrap Rexx programs under Win32 as a GUI application. This is
useful for Rexx/Tk programs. This version also uses regina-config and
rexxtrans-config (if available) to reduce the problems of which libraries to
link with on Unix platforms.
August 14, 2002
- Version 1.6 of Rexx/Trans released. This version contains the Object Rexx specific
API functions RexxWaitForTermination() and RexxDidRexxTerminate(). It also has
preliminary support for Reginald, but my simple testing indicates that Reginald
has some bug in it that causes Reginald to crash when (at least) an Instore macro is called.
