Bruce gets recognition in Gambas 3.16.0

Post by stevedee » Friday 16th April 2021 7:02am

Described as "a huge release" Gambas 3.16.0 installed itself on my computer early this morning.

There is certainly a long list of changes and enhancements described in the Release Notes, and while I was checking the inclusion of "platform" and "GUI Toolkit" to the About Gambas... dialog, our very own Bruce Steers appeared in the list of Authors...Well done Bruce!

aaw bless ya guys

to be fair i had to recognise myself :lol:

Ben asked on the mailing list for any contributors to add themselves to the contributors file.

I deliberated for a bit thinking I hadn't done much but tons of bug reporting (tons and tons of bug reporting).
So i added myself and listed the TerminalView window commands support and the shell highlighting and much bug tracking/reporting/even fixing and minor tweaks,

Then Ben said he cleaned up the file a bit and removed things like bug reporting/tweaks :-\
Doh, I thought my bug reporting was my biggest contribution :lol:

I wish i hadn't run out of ideas though.

I'm happy to have helped contribute for free to something i've used for free for years.
all thanks go to Ben really , I've just helped where i could.
Sadly my eagerness to help kinda outweighs my ability to :(

Be well all :)
Many thanks
