Version 3.0 Enhancements - Minisoft 320 Version 3.00.160
  • New TrueType Display Font – In addition to our bitmap fonts we now include a custom designed TrueType font that is highly scalable to support large monitors. The new font is also used for printing ensuring greater consistency between display and printed reports. Customized for terminal emulation requirements, the new font display includes visually appealing line drawing characters for the accurate representation of host application boxes, windows and outlines.

  • Startup.Ini Editor – This new utility makes the process of editing the main E-Term32 initialization file simpler and easier to understand. Each configuration setting is explained and online help is also included. This is a nice enhancement that eliminates the need for text editing of the Startup.ini file.

  • Controller Mode Printing using Windows Print Drivers – This feature, along with the capability to define the number of lines and rows in a print job, allows more format control when printing through Controller Mode. Using new mode, Controller Mode printing to Postscript printers is now possible.

  • General Enhancements – As with any new release, we fixed and tweaked various emulation, display, file transfer, and scripting problems reported by our customers, resulting in a more robust, accurate and stable product offering.

Release Notes MS320 Version 2.00.111

Launching the Application after Installation:

Version 2.0 serializes all data into 1 object file.

If the user is upgrading from version 1.X and wishes to keep their existing session files (*.ini, *.cnf, *.dsk) the program must launch with a "/c" or "/C" to convert existing session files to there respective binary session file.

Under Windows 2000, when an unprivileged user (a non-administrator or a non-power user ) attempts to launch the application an error occurs "Failed to update the system registry, Please try using regedit". See Microsoft article Q254957. Due to this error, a "privileged" user must do all installations.

What's New in 2.0?

  1. Version 2.0 now serializes all data into 1 object file. The toolbar.ini, toolbardefault.ini, keymap.ini, keymapdefault.ini, xxxx.cnf and xxx.dsk files now exist in 1 binary file.

  2. All session files are now kept in a sub directory named "Sessions" off of the installed directory.
