New Release 0.20101024.0

This release of L’âne includes the long-requested switch from perl-Pg to DBI: The obsolete Pg module is no longer used. DBI also allows us to finally safely use multibyte character sets. In fact, UTF-8 is now the default encoding in L’âne. Additionally, the back office Tk programs, the curses register, and the XML Register have all undergone numerous bug fixes.

DB Changes

Sales now track payments applied to them. The fall-back locale information is now stored in the database. All existing users should follow the dataset update instructions in LanePOS/dataset/README !

i18n/L10n Changes

The system now defaults to using UTF-8 as the database encoding and supports multibyte characters. Additionally, the locale fall-back text is now loaded from the database. Note: The default locale is now "c", not "en-US", so American users who had previously ignored the locale system will need to set their $ENV{'LaneLang'} variable. Also, the various device output formats can be changed via the locale system now. For example, one can easily change the what the printer prints for items to better suit his store.

The regression tests have been expanded to include basic GUI testing.
