Doors CS 7.0 Released
« on: August 25, 2010, 01:56:51 am »


After a long summer of coding and debugging, Doors CS 7.0 has finally been released! This milestone comes three years since the last major release of Doors CS 6.0 in April 2007 and two years since the incremental release of Doors CS 6.2 in May 2008.  Nine years since its humble beginnings as a crude BASIC shell, Doors CS 7.0 aims to bring a full set of features and rock-solid stability to users and coders alike.  It supports MirageOS, Ion, Doors CS, and nostub BASIC and Assembly programs, and contains full support libraries for XLib, Celtic III, PicArc, (partially) Omnicalc, and the new DCSB Libs that let Doors CS coders use features like the DCS GUI.  The HomeRun feature lets you execute any type of program, BASIC or ASM, archived or not, from the TI-OS homescreen.  The Doors CS desktop lets you view your programs and folders, organize them into nested folders, cut, copy, rename, lock, archive, hide, and even edit programs, and change settings and options from the DCS Menu.  Doors CS 7.0 adds more robust protect from data loss due to RAM Clears, including automatic restoration of the user's folder structure.

For ASM developers, Doors CS offers a full suite of features, adding the DCS GUI system, and Associated Program system that automatically opens files in their associated viewer/editor, and much more on top of a full complement of MirageOS and Ion-compatible libraries.  BASIC programmers can take advantage of support for every popular BASIC library built directly into the shell.  Full information about Doors CS can be found at http://dcs.cemetech.net, including a (very) exhaustive feature list and screenshots galore for your viewing pleasure.

I am happy to see it's finally out!

1) it's going on my calc pretty soon (or for most of the time)
2) This goes in the news section and front page at noon tomorrow.

EDIT: And I admin Doors came A LONG way since its early days. Back then, I saw Doors XP and thought it was just another BASIC shell and ignored it. Later, It was ASM but it was 83 only, and I didn't like it as a 7 KB prog. Then it became an app but it had some bugs so I decided to wait until 6.2 to use it, but darn, so many new stuff was added in the past years and now we can do everything (or close) with it.

I wonder if there are still copies of DoorsXP available anywhere? ;D

In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Cheers! I spent the past three months doing many heavy and thorough cycles of debugging and tweaking, so I'll hope this is the most rock-solid release of Doors CS to date.  I think I might have some Doors XP copies on some old floppy disks somewhere. :)

bwang, if you are talking about the power-off bug in DCS, then, that was fixed

Also nice readme :)

I agree with Andrepd too. Personally I think I'll use it for a while because I got no issues with it yet, even with very old large games. The only time I'll probably need to switch back to Mirage is if I do heavy Axe programming (like with lots of data and using a lot of the archive), because DCS7 + Axe are half of my archive combined together, so at this point, I would need to temporary use something smaller. (Using a TI-83+ btw)

Yeah, I have a TI-83+ too and I've been using MirageOS almost since I first got my calc and I've been reluctant switching over to Doors CS mainly because of the size. But with all the features built in, I believe this will finally convince me to switch over. :)

EDIT: 50th post!!!

When I try to download DCS, this pops up:

Template->make_filename(): Error - template file not found: site/archives_file.tpl

A similar error happens when I visit cemetech.net's homepage. I don't know why, though.
