openCanvas Plus

Current version is 1.1b72.  in Wine 0.9.5x, 1.1b71 would sometimes freak out in network drawing, throwing weirdness everywhere.  b72 seems fine, though.

Only warnings that arise from using this program as far as I've seen has been this:

"fixme:bitblt:X11DRV_BitBlt potential optimization - client-side DIB copy"

But I suspect that's a stub in the x11 driver's code.

Otherwise things work 100%

What works

basically everything that matters.

Painting (And all associated tools)

Shape tools

Network painting

Making layers (Any mode), changing their modes, toggling visibility.

Layer/Document commands (Resolution, Resize [Canvas], Flip, Rotate.)

Color picking and sampling.

What does not

Nothing major.

The dialogue boxes and the network chat box show up in random window symbols.  Fixed in 0.9.61 Tested with a clean ~/.wine, and doesn't work for me.  If anyone else experiences (or doesn't), comment please.

The tools pallets (The ones with WM tops, eg quartzwm for Mac, rather than windows tops) move downwards on certain events. For example : Hitting the tabs on the Edit > Resolution dialogue.  Command-Tabbing to and from when they're visible (Is this mac-specific?).  Hiding and revealing with the tab key.

They also are hidden by the main application window when you cilck on said window.  Command tabbing back and forth brings them back up front with the aforementioned dropping in Y position.


What was not tested

Canvas view rotation.

Pressure sensitivity. (If someone could test this on a non-mac machine.  Apple's X11 doesn't support tablets and I don't feel like messing with a second Xorg install.)

Additional Comments

I changed this one back to silver because after starting from a fresh ~/.wine, the gabbldeegook panels returned. My question is, how did it get fixed before? --- Moved to Gold since all the dialogues are readable (Or as much as they would normally be to someone who can't understand Japanese. :) Still some small issues. --- By the way, "Installing" consists of downloading it and running. Yummy.
