Glom 1.14

Yesterday I released the stable Glom 1.14. It has some incremental improvements – most noticeably:

  • Better alignment of widgets in the details view, still using simple automatic layout.
  • Many small UI improvements by Daniel Borgmann after his initial review.
  • Some extra formatting options, such as alternative colors for negative numbers, and custom horizontal alignment, though Glom still chooses good defaults depending on the field type. Choices may also be shown as radio buttons now.
  • There is more Python API available from button scripts. They can now change field values, navigate to other tables, start new records, or print reports.It’s easy to add more API because we use boost::python.
    (I must figure out how to generate HTML documentation for our Python module’s API by adding documentation in our boost::python C++ code.)
