My iBook is back on track for now, but when I downloaded the latest version of Tinderbox, --3.0.2 --and tried to export The Notebook of Sand , large sections of the weblog disappeared from the website.
Here's what happened: In versions of Tinderbox before 3.0, the include export command would include a note into the page even if the HTMLDontExport setting were true. Now, it must be set to false before Tinderbox will export the note, even on an include. This is a good idea; it allows us to control the exportability of the note within the note itself rather than being required to dig up all references to it in order to remove it from the site.
So if you have been blogging in Tinderbox, and your includes have disappeared, just click on the note you wish to include, select View->New HTML View. Then click the check beside Export.
Voila! Your information appears once again.
Each release from Eastgate has made Tinderbox a richer application. Tinderbox 3.n contains a feature that I have wanted for two years. We can now do arithmetic in Agent queries and (even more fun) in conditional statements. For example, I can do something like:
The image is too huuuuuuge!
include the image
I am glad they're porting to Windows. The introduction of Tinderbox onto a new platform gives Eastgate a reason to focus on two things:
- The features that regular users of Tinderbox need
The better Eastgate does at addressing these areas, the happier new Windows users will be, and the happier we OS X users will be.
Sigh. I really wish there were a good piece of spatial hypertext software for GNU/Linux. MacOnLinux doesn't yet work with OS 10.4.n, and it's killing me. I'm trapped in a foreign country.
