Hi everyone,

   as you have seen Serge Bromow and I (or is it "me"?) had a
lengthy discussion about when interaction with an input object
is to be considered to have ended. Serge was kind enough to
have me have it my way (probably wisely following the proverb
that "the cleverer gives in"). In order to allow for programs
that need the behaviour of input objects as it was up to (and
including) version 1.0.90 there is now a new function

int fl_input_end_return_handling(int type);

It can be called with two values, FL_INPUT_END_EVENT_ALWAYS (1),
which is the default now, or FL_INPUT_END_EVENT_CLASSIC (0) for
switching back to the behaviour of XForms until 1.0.90. The func-
tion can be used where-ever you want, so you can switch freely
between both variants.

The new version can be downloaded as


I would be grateful if some of you would test if it works as ad-
vertised above (and, of course, if you would report all other
issues you may find!).
Tested and it works as advertised. Simply added the new routing in a global routine, complied and all is fine again.

You know your getting old when you find your self using the "CLASSIC" definitions.
So I don't fall behind this technology game I will be upgrading my phone system to touch tone next week.

And, of course, if you feel that the behavior for input objects as
it is now is wrong please also tell me - we can go back to the old
behaviour as the default and have the new function be used to switch
to the behaviour that I do favour. Lots of arguments have been ex-
changed between Serge and me and, as far as I can see,  we just came
to the conclusion to agree that we disagree, so fresh, new input
could make all of the difference!

Finally: a new release is planned to be released "real soon now"
(i.e. around next Sunday to hopefully make it into the next Debian
distribution), so all tests you do now will help avoid releasing
something awfully buggy - which might also inconvenience YOU when
your users/customers link against the new release per default and
get bitten by bugs not found now!!!
I will move forward with testing and let you know as flags are raised.

Thanks Again,

                             Best regards, Jens
