Here’s the latest from our contractor in Australia:
The next stage is very large. So far we have developed methods to export the layout of a window to an xml formatted file that Qt Designer can understand and edit. We have also written a top level UI wrapper that can create windows from the xml files.
The rest of the time has been spent trying to determine the best way to integrate this into the existing code.
Meanwhile, Turtlesoft staff has converted a bunch of Goldenseal code so it works in a modern 64-bit OS. The new app will still be able to read existing company files that use 32-bit formats, and we want to make the migration path as easy as possible. We may need to have an automatic, one-time conversion of the file format, but so far that hasn’t been necessary.
