Ok, thanks for confirmation. With regards to your question, I don't expect any fixes in coming days.

If there are no more updates and bugs fixed in the next few days, I might start building the new AROS one v2.3

Perhaps my English translation is not understandable

I installed fat-handler and WBRename, and everything works very well

I had not tested it:
OK tested also solved the bug #107

I can change size of letters on FAT volumes from Wanderer. Did you install the new version of fat-handler that is in the archive?

Perfect now you can rename both files and folders in lower case/uppercase, thank you

However, Wanderer's problem remains the 'Cannot change size of letters in name without changing name' bug, which naturally also affects FAT volumes.

Hi,

FAT is also fixed now. Please use the following archive:

https://axrt.org/development/wbrename_fat.i386.zip

With that you should be able to change capitalization of names from Wanderer under RAM, SFS and FAT.

Please confirm that issue is solved and I will close the bug report!

Please try this version of WBRename (System/Wanderer/Tools). This should allow changing size of letter on RAM and SFS partitions. EMUL (hosted) and FAT still have some bugs I need to look into:

https://axrt.org/development/WBRename-0.5.i386-aros.zip

Let me know if issue is solved on RAM and SFS

I agree. Both of those are irritating but they are small imperfections that people see. Even new users will notice them.

"Wanderer Rename" e "DiskInfo showing OFS instead of FAT" I think they are very important, they are common operations made by users that would be confusing!

Hopefully this time it will be a fix without a break Wink

@deadwood :

I've chosen #113 (AREXX scripts in Core show no output), which appeared after you had fixed another arexx bug (related to the address 'COMMAND' 'list :' instruction crashing the script, remember ? )

Since then, the "Say" instruction which outputs a string to the console, stopped working :-)

TLDR: >>>> https://github.com/deadw00d/AROS/labels/IBOTM <<<<

Here were are with another IBOTM! This month I decided to decrease the poll size from 10 to 6. This way with few people voting we should get clearer results. When this idea becomes more popular, the number of choices will increase of course.


General rules are simple:

1) Bugs are selected from bugs reported on bug tracker
2) There is a poll made and community selects one bug from suggested bugs
3) I fix the bug.
4) Delay(1 month); Go To 1;

The initial list of bugs will be related to ABIv0 i386 or ABIv11 x86_64. In effect bugs specific to m68k AROS or any other AROS flavor won't be added to poll options. Bugs can be in either AROS core system or in Contrib package. Bugs need to be reproducible on clean system releases, so bugs visible only on distributions won't be included.
