DarkRadiant 2.7.0 released

Recommended Posts

DarkRadiant 2.7.0 is ready for download.

It's a maintenance build for the most part, but it contains a few smaller improvements. As usual, a bit of refactoring and improvement has been happening under the hood, but this shouldn't have any negative impact. It's recommended to prefer this version over any previous release.

A new DarkRadiant User Guide is being worked on and available on the website https://www.darkradiant.net/userguide (also accessible through the About > User Guide menu option).

Windows and Mac Downloads are available on github: https://github.com/codereader/DarkRadiant/releases/tag/2.7.0 and of course linked from the website https://www.darkradiant.net

Thanks go out to all who helped testing this release!

Thanks for the dump! I'm going to need more info here,  I must be missing a step to get it to hang on my system.

In the dump I'm able to see that you were pressing the "s" key while being focused on the MediaBrowser tree, is this correct? DR is hanging when trying to create the arrow buttons in the search popup. So the "s" key is processed by the MediaBrowser, which interprets it as type-ahead search opening the popup - then it hangs for whatever reason.

Can you try again, please, paying close attention to what stuff you are clicking on after starting up DR. The more precise info I can get about what items you clicked in which order and which controls are focused while you were pressing the "s" key, the better I can try to reproduce it.

Also, please tell me what Windows version you are on? A hang while creating a bitmap button is very strange and this might as well be a bug. Other dialogs are using it as well, can you check out if the Layer dialog is working? Other dialogs using bitmap buttons are the button when selecting an "angle" spawnarg in the EntityInspector, or the AAS file selector dialog.

Thanks greebo! It was great watching you make short work of my bug reports as they came in, and I can really appreciate those QoL fixes (i.e. clicks in the layers window always hitting their mark, 'Choose ...' buttons always affecting the intended entity)

New DMP file + a video showing what I do https://easyupload.io/xm9u56

It freezes when I dubbleclicked the texture, go with my pionter out of the media browser and press s (2:20 in the vid .. forgot to record the pointer). I didn't click outside the media browser yet, so normally it would input s into the little searchfield in de MB. I tried to recreate it with just a brush, but then no problems. With this more complex brush and the caulk if freezes. Yesterday I got back to 2.60 to do the same and there I had no problems. By the way, I press s before clicking outside the media browser half the time ...

Windows version =  Windows 7 professional. Servicepack 1
