Detailed information

OPUS for Linux is free for your evaluation. Use it at your own risk. No support from Bruker Optics.

Please note that these package files are older, unfortunately (a replacement currently is not available yet). This means that they may be incompatible with (too) new Linux distributions, thus one may need to use older Linux distributions such as <= Ubuntu 12.04LTS (possibly via e.g. VirtualBox).

ChangeLog:


  • Entirely new fully cross-platform generic build system (CMake / CPack), much improved packaging - feedback would be useful
  • Context-sensitive help now corrected to properly support Linux chm viewers
  • Mechanism for automatic backslash path correction in affected OPUS parameters
  • Improved support of pseudo MDI (currently active) / real MDI (not enabled) window handling
  • Beginnings of printing support
  • Working_ support for many other codepages:

    • Single-Byte codepages (/LANGUAGE=RUSSIAN, Turkish, ...)
    • Multi-Byte codepages (Simplified Chinese, ...) now also supported (not directly supported due to toolkit limitation - may work on getting this fixed -, but due to conversion to proper UTF-8 working in many cases

  • File Save As format selection now working correctly
  • Large encoding handling rework, now able to make use of proper system-provided Unicode-based wx package
    many misc. fixes / optimizations, e.g.:
    major implementation parts completely reworked (messaging, window handling, graphics)
  • Thread creation fixes, locking granularity improvements
  • Many thread locking corrections where needed, for non-primary-thread GUI output (strongly improved correctness/precision)
  • Try to contain damage inflicted upon by still pervasive copy-on-write string implementations in current base architecture toolkits
  • Device contexts, handle improvements
