CAIL / Android Change Log

Nov 22, 2019 14.0.1

-Changed minimum Android version supported to 5.0 (Lollipop)

-Changed version number to 14 to match other CAIL 6530 software

-All sessions were sharing the same properties. We have changed this so that session related properties (colors, pages of memory, font etc.) are now saved to each configuration file. From now on anything under the 'Terminal' section of 'Preferences' will be unique to that session. All other settings (Startup Options, Display Settings, Toolbar Settings) are global.

-Fixed blank screen (Title bar is there, but 6530 screen area is blank) when sending the app to the background, then going back to it

-App no longer crashes when sent to the background, then return to it

-Added settings and code for Orientation (Choices are Portrait, Landscape, OS Setting)

-Added setting and code for Force Upper Case. This causes the emulator to convert all alpha characters to upper case before sending to the host

-SSH authentication had been updated to support Strict Host Checking

-Session files can now be deleted by long tapping on the file name after bring up the 'Open' dialog in the 'New Session' screen

-The service name was being sent out twice. This has been fixed

-Added more choices for the toolbar. Can now have small or large buttons. Small buttons can have 2 or 4 rows, while large buttons have 1 or 2 rows (both use up the same amount of space on the screen). Both will scroll if some rows are not visible

-Made changes to better handle different screen sizes with regard to the toolbar

-Moved menu button from bottom bar to top title bar due to some devices not showing the menu if they have physical buttons

-Added support to hide/show the title bar with a swipe

-Added a 'Help' item to the menu. Brings up browser to the CAIL / Android help page

-Fixed issue where the session stopped accepting keyboard input after coming back from sleep

-The start field extended escape sequence was cutting fields by one character. This has been fixed

-Disconnecting or connecting an external keyboard caused CAIL to crash. This has been fixed

-Added support for optionally resizing the font when the keyboard, toolbar or title bar are shown/hidden
