Hello,

This month's IBOTM marks half a year of running this activity! To celebrate this, this time not one, but two bugs will be selected.

First bug will be selected using regular rules via the poll above.

Second bug, will be selected to award people who have been consistent on voting on things they find important but didn't have enough luck each time. The second bug will be selected by highest number of total votes in last 5 polls and combined with this poll.

The current total scoring is as follows:

#125 -> 7
#116 -> 6
#105 -> 8

In case both method end up selecting the same bug, the bug with second most total points will be selected.

As usual, you can read descriptions of bugs here: https://github.com/deadwood2/AROS/labels/IBOTM

Have fun and vote!

deadwood, regarding bug #140, when using the Relabel command to rename a volume, you don't need to reboot the system to see the new name (as in the bug report), actually just do a "Refresh" on Wanderer, you get the same result by using the Backdrop comado "Menu Wanderer", just turn Backdrop activate/deactivate

This procedure also works when changing the icon to a Volume or folder, after "Refresh" from wanderer, the new icon will be visible.

Sorry deadwood, on that note on Aminet there is SmartWB10 which also includes sources in C.

SmartWB10 if I understand correctly allows an automatic update of the Workbench, I tried to compile it but it requires sources not in development, this could be useful if intehrated in the wanderer menu, or in the startup-sequence

@AMIGASYSTEM

Your post #4 is in Italian and I don't know what relation SmartWB would have with bug #140.

Sorry I thought I wrote it in English, now it is translated !

SmartWB is not directly addressing bug #140, but what I had written in post #4, in the sense that after the relabel, the new name would be immediately visible, without using the procedure I described in post #4.

Ok, thanks for translation. Bug #140 is not about Relabel shell command, but about using Icon->Rename from Wandeder menu to relabel a disk.

Hi All,

Just a reminder - one day left to vote!

As it stands right now, the winner of the poll would be #116, and the winner in total votes would be #105.

Total votes:
#123 - 12
#116 - 13
#105 - 13

However, as you can see we have a very tight race this month, so even one vote can now make the difference. Looking forward to seeing how this plays out...

Hi All,

Here is a fix for bug #105. This was implemented by Kalamatee around a year ago and now ported to ABIv0

https://axrt.org/development/DiskInfo-20240417.i386-aros.zip

As you can see on screen shot, both FAT disk and pendrive show file system correctly. Also the floppy disk icon in file system name is gone. If you find a case where the file system is still invalidly reported, please let me know.

Tested the new "DiskInfo" on AROS One and it works perfectly, see screenshot !

Even the floppy disk icon on the Shared (SMB2) disappeared, although then the filesystem is not recognized

Hi,

Here is a fix for #116:

https://axrt.org/development/Wanderer.20240423.i386-aros.zip

The new version also contains fix from Kalamatee: when formatting a disk during InstallAROS, "ghost" icon of previous disk no longer remains.

Good news !

Successfully tested, "even multiple" files and folders can be deleted simply with Canc key !

To improve again as it happens on ABIv1, the recognition of the HardDisk Icon "NoDOS" is missing.

When you add a new HD, Wanderer shows a "Gray" Icon, on ABIv1 instead it is assigned NoDos Volume Icon, see screenshot !

The functionality you are showing on screen shot has not yet been migrated to my repo from ABIv1, so we will have to wait for that.
