    I'm working on abolishing the Font Installer in version 2.1.* for some sort of font resolver. Once I figure out how to load font resources into memory and use them instead of it being loaded from Windows, this issue is gone entirely. However, I don't want to be setting the font for each control manually.

    If anyone has experience with this please send a message. It would be great to hear from someone with experience.

    Hotfixes have been removed from Core.dll, and two fonts were added. Core.dll has gone from 4MB+ to under 2.8MB.

    I guess your definition of "two weeks off" does not match mine, entirely...

    One comment: With the Hotfixes being downloaded, there's always the chance the download source vanishes, is down, or the system is airgapped/offline. Liked it better when they were integrated.

    Well it was 99% ready so I though why not release. You should know by now my timekeeping should be illegal hehe. Now I'll take a week off.

    Do you want the hotfixes back in there? My thinking is I can compress them plus the fonts and have them un-compressed when dumped.

    The next version I'll add an option where any user can save all resources to disk.

    Sorry, I won't be ready for tomorrow. Been sick and the assessments are in pieces due to being split into modules.

    Regards, K4.

    Just take your time, it's not the nuclear launch codes or the like. :whistling:
    No problem if it is a few days late.

    Still working here, I apologize you haven't seen v2.1.0 but I've been extremely busy with personal stuff. Xiret source-code is now released under the CC-BY-SA 4.0 license and the terms of use remain unchanged.

    I'm currently having some trouble working out the prototype merge of both assessments guts. I'm bringing a friend in to help solve the layout. I have lost some momentum and I hope it will pick up soon.

    I'm pushing 2.1.0 back until January. If you have any questions please ask. I just have no time at the moment.

    Regards, K4.

    Development has restarted. The settings windows has been redesigned along with the main UI (images attached). More information will come soon, I need to look through my patch notes and catch myself up.

    So far we have a UI font change from 9px to 10px, a new font resource 'Segoe MDL2 assets' which is available in Windows 10 but for everyone else it will install, a new assessment core (two windows become one) with better progress handling and the version label can now be interacted with and contains two states (show changelog, or show new version when an update is ready).

    Lastly, the WSA core is coming on well. At the moment we're sifting through data and thoroughly checking all notes. FYI, there is currently no plan to make this application FOSS.

    Happy new year. It has been hard to pull my finger out after all that food

    Today, the following was completed: -

    • Fixed a bug within the UI framework, this could cause controls to randomly disappear (mainly for developers)
    • Removed launch diagnostics, they're kind of useless.
    • 'FormAssessVerbose' has become 'FormAssess' and the original 'FormAssess' was deleted from the project. There is now one -unified- and merged assessment.
    • Better assessment code and assessment progress reporting.
    • Image resources are now stored in Base64.
    • Enabled deletion of winsat and xiret data simultaneously.

    REMEMBER, and this is important. I'm truly grateful for everyone who has helped here.

    Regards, K4.
