Hi Rowland,

Making STReplay work in Linux (and hopefully macOS) - in some way - is one of my aims - but I can't give you a timescale yet.

I've done some tests running it under mono on Linux to understand the issues better.
Ivo has been helping me a lot to improve the integration with StarTools which should also help with running under different OS's.

However, my current focus is to get a first public release of the Windows only version.

I will then re-assess the effort needed to make it work in some way under Linux - maybe using mono. Would that be of any interest to you?

mono seems to be a preferred option with VB.NET or C# in Linux. A project to watch with interest. mono did not install well on my xubuntu system even with the ubuntu supplied packages.

I have created a new version (0.49.53) ready for testers to download.

The significant changes are:
- Full background operation is possible.
- Support for (and requires) StarTools v1.5. Version 1.4 is no longer supported.
- Full support of the STReplay interface to StarTools
- Various other bug fixes

Just download it as before.

Let me know of any problems you have - or any ideas for improvements.
Many thanks for the feedback so far.

First beta release of STReplay for Windows

I have just uploaded the first beta version of STReplay (0.51.57) which is generally available for people to try.
Currently it only works on StarTools version 1.5 in Windows.

Download the file STReplay.zip to your hard drive from here

Extract the files from the zipped file STReplay.zip into a folder on the hard drive.
Please read the 'Notes for Beta Testers.txt' file and the 'STReplayNotes' PDF

It is still beta so you may find some problems. Please report these to me by PM.

Many thanks to Ivo for his help and the interface to StarTools, and the testers for their great support.

Thanks and regards,

Guy

Request for Linux testers

Now that the first generally-available beta version of STReplay for windows has been released I am focusing on a version for Linux.

The Linux version runs in mono under Linux.
I am looking for alpha testers to help with the testing.

If you are interested in helping me test STReplay under Linux then please contact me via PM.

Please let me know the version of Linux you are using and the hardware platform.

Regards
Guy
