Teradesk sources now in FreeMint

Post by ThorstenOtto »

With permission from Djordje Vukovic, a new repository with the teradesk sources has been made available as part of the Freemint project. Thanks to @gstoll, an almost complete history could be preserved.

Automated builds are not (yet) available, but in the meantime can be download from https://bintray.com/th-otto/teradesk-fi ... ots/#files (that address will change once a bintray package has been created for freemint). As for now, the prebuild, complete builds of freemint still contain the official 4.08 version; that will hopefully change soon, too.

The archives linked above also contain translated material that was available, that is, resource files for german, italian, french, and russian, and hypertext files for german and russian. The french resource file was adopted from a slightly older version for 4.04; would be nice if someone can check that again.

In case someone wants to create new translations: there are now text files available that contain all the strings from the resource file. An example for german can be found here, and a template file with just the original strings can be found here. That should make it easier to create new translations for people who are not familiar with the use of a resource editor, especially since the resource file contains lot of hidden objects. In case someone wonders: the files are encoded in utf-8, so you better edit them on windows or linux (or convert them to atari characterset first)

Thanks, that helps, since there have been no changes to the resource file since 4.06.

BTW, that looks like an independent translation,i took the previous one from viewtopic.php?f=28&t=24645&p=226357&hil ... ch#p226357
