bootAble version 3.3 released; Mozilla and interactive support added

June 05, 2004 by Hayo Baan

I've release a new version of bootAble. Apart from fixing some bugs and other minor improvements, the two major changes are that bootAble can now be run interactively and that Mozilla support has been added. Change log from the documentation:
v3.3 (05/06/2004)

* Greatly simplified (I hope) the use of the script; bootAble now asks for values of settings that can not be determined automatically. These values can optionally be written to a configuration file for later use (i.e., this is an automated way of creating a bootAble.myCfg);
* SCSI support now determined automatically when specifying SCSI=-1 (the default);
* Rich Walsh contributed bootAble.dragtext for adding dragtext v3.8 support;
* Rich Walsh & Doug Bissett contributed bootAble.injoy for adding injoy support;
* Doug Bissett contributed bootAble.doip for adding DOIP support;
* Added Mozilla support (bootAble.mozilla, thank you Rich Walsh for providing the essential detail);
* Doug Bisset adapted bootAble.firefox for adding firefox;
* Added extra check for the VIRTUALDRIVE setting (should point to a 2.88MB FAT drive);
* You can now configure the ini entries SYSDLLS LOADONETIME and LOADPERPROCESS (SYSDLLS_LOADONETIME, SYSDLLS_LOADPERPROCESS, see bootAble.dragtext for an example);
* On top of normal text files (EXTRACREATEFILES), you can now create binary ini files as well (EXTRAINIFILES settings), see bootAble.dragtext for an example;
* APPROOT_ renamed to APPSRC_ in application configuration files;
* Applications now get added to the PROGRAMS directory on the destination media instead of OS2APPS (e.g., acrobat reader now goes to PROGRAMSACROBAT by default instead of OS2APPSACROBAT). This default destanation root can be altered by setting APPDEST_ROOTDEFAULT (globally initialised to PROGRAMS);
* Added setting ADDTOSEARCHPATH to simply add entries to the (beginning of) SEARCHPATH;
* The SEARCHPATH is now verified; illegal and double entries are removed;
* ...

(For the full list, please see the documentation)

Many thanks go to both Doug Bissett and Rich Walsh for extensive beta testing and for providing improvement suggestions.
