On a Win7 platform I intend to use GPS-GPL2014 and GtkAda 2015 (currently both still on the 2014 version).
Wrt the PATH variable there are two options, either the GtkAda bin directory comes first, or the GPS-GPL bin directory comes first.
When Gtkada bin (2015) comes first:
- I noticed incompatible behavior with Gtk_Tree_Model_Filte. The 2014 version Gtk_New accepts a Null_Gtk_Tree_Model for the child model and but from the resulting Tree_Model_Filter the type can’t be acquired using Glib.Object.Get_Type. - When closing GPS an error box is shown: “The application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way”
When GPS-GPL bin (2014)come first:
The two above mentioned situations do not occur; However, my GtkAda applications look ugly (font and font size) and I get the following messages:
(gen_signal_args.exe:9460): Pango-WARNING **: failed to choose a font, expect ugly output. engine-type='PangoRenderWin32', script='common'; and (gen_signal_args.exe:9460): Pango-WARNING **: failed to choose a font, expect ugly output. engine-type='PangoRenderWin32', script='latin'
I am reluctant to switch to GPS-GPL 2015 because on a i386 (32bits) linux platform I am stuck to the 32-bits compiler and I don’t want to use two different GPS versions.
