CHANGES FOR VERSION 5.34.5 (as compared to 5.34.0)

  1. Worked around Microsoft OS bug #248760 and #209467 – writing to metafiles from multiple threads causes lost object selections. This has caused display unstability for Gfx function-generated output on some XP and Vista machines. The only way to fix that was NOT to use metafiles at all. Gfx code was rewritten not to use Microsoft metafiles. As a result of custom implementation Gfx functions work now 3 times faster and are multi-threading safe.
  2. GfxDrawText automatically falls back to much (4x) faster ExtTextOut when format is 0 or DT_NOCLIP and string does not contain any new line characters

Hint: If AmiBroker 5.34.5 crashes at start up with “multi-thread charts” option enabled, you can make it work by holding down the SHIFT key while starting AmiBroker – this will turn OFF multi-threading.

For more details and instructions see the 5.34.5 BETA READ ME.

Next planned beta (5.35.0) should arrive next Friday.
