Gwave NEWS --- history of user-visible changes. -*- text -*- New in 20051222 - full-height vertical scrollbar appears if the total height of all panels becomes larger than the window. - new panel type "jumbo" stays larger even when things get crowded - handling of multi-sweep datafiles - vertical scrollbars on label/measure area in each wavepanel make handling large numbers of waveforms easier. - most deprecated guile calls removed. Guile 1.6 or later is now required. New in 20031202 - Got docstring extraction from C source to .txt files in doc directory working again - applied submitted patch that cleans up warnings from gcc3 about multiline text strings in C code New in 20030804 - Plugin backends for hardcopy plot/export (graph and gnuplot are currently supported) - Ability to change the drawing order of waves in a panel - Data-export function for writing out a selected subset of a file's data - Selected waves are higlighted by drawing with a wider line style New in 20020122: - Y and XY zoom capability for any wavepanel. - Dialog box for precise setting of displayed extents of wavepanel. - Restore the ability to build using guile-1.3.4, which was accidently broken in 20011020 New in 20011021: - better measurement: value at both cursors or difference in values at cursors - enhanced handling of log scales - yet more file-reading improvements and general bug fixes New in 20001123: - Saving wave and panel configuration as guile scripts. - Executing guile scripts from menu or command line (-s scriptfile option) - Remote control using the gwave-exec and gwaverepl utilities New in 20001004: - Spice3/Ngspice rawfile improvements: binary files now work! - Other minor file-reading improvements. - spice source code to examples for which I could still find it. New in 20001004: - Major improvements to handling of binary files produced by HSPICE. - Overhaul of input of spice3/ngspice raw files; more robust and tolerant of complex numbers. - User interface improvements: tooltips added. User's .gwaverc no longer required to do lots of standard setup. system.gwaverc can be copied to $HOME/.gwaverc and edited to taste. - sp2sp utility included for converting any spice file readable by gwave into a convenient tabular ascii format. New in 20000509: - First public guile/guile-gtk release. - Popup menu on visible-wave button can activate per-waveform dialog box, with a few useful operations and a lot of promise. - Logarithmic scale on Y axis working; on X axis it isn't quite there yet. New in 20000108: (internal only) - Merged in guile and guile-gtk; the GUI is mostly written in guile now. - Some additional improvements to reading of HSPICE input. Reading partial files from simulations still in progress works for ascii .tr0 files now. New in 19990927 - Many bug fixes - Added rudimentary export of postscript and PNM. This feature requires the graph program from a recent version of GNU plotutils. New in 19990822: - Added "ascii" input format for tabular data with headings. This format is compatible with output from ACS. - Added "reload all" button to the main window's toolbar. - Improvements in reading of HSPICE-format files. New in 19990601: - Changed version naming scheme to one based on the date, rather than a number that suggests some sort of progress on the scale from 0.0 to 1.0. - Deleting and reloading waveform files - Detects Gtk 1.0 vs Gtk 1.2, builds on either. (assumes that Gtk+-1.1.x is like 1.2, which may even be correct somtimes) - New structure for file-reading code uses a library libspicefile.a, which I also use in some other tools. - Should handle HSPICE AC analysis files without ".options probe" better. New in 0.0.6: - Inserting/deleting waveform panels. - added right-button popup menu to waveform panels - The compile/install process now uses automake and autoconf to generate the familiar "configure" script - An attempt at placing the variable list windows in a more convenient position in relation to the main window. Getting this perfect under all window managers is a losing proposition. New in 0.0.5: - Fixed bug in reading hspice files with lots of columns - displays signal name list window for files read from the command line. (note: it will probably be behind the main window) - incorporated code contributed by Jeff Dionne for reading spice2 rawfiles New in 0.0.4: - Fixed bug and/or warning when first waveform is added to display - Ability to drag vertical bar cursors around, in addition to click-to-place - Added zoom-to-cursor function; if both cursors have been placed, zooms so that the time between the cursors fills the display. - Added zoom-to-window function. Select this menu option, then press/drag/release mouse button 1 to indicate a region of the X axis that then zooms to fill the display. New in 0.0.3: - Load multiple files at once, either from the command line or interactively. - Some operations are moved to pulldown menus.
