0.59.8 is available, Puppy 1.0.4 has 0.58.8

Some new stuff has been added and there seems to be a little more documentation (in the download package) than is presently included in Puppy.

0.59.8 is incompatible with older versions, see Newspage.

In this version your script MUST have
export MAIN_DIALOG='....

Older scripts could use any Variablename like
export MY_WINDOW='...

Barry has contacted the developer of Gtkdialog for this.
Meanwhile Version 0.59.8 is available as an optional Pupget.

MU, I think 0.59.8 fixes that problem with MAIN_DIALOG.

A very important difference is this:
gtkdialog --program=MY_DIALOG
...the equals sign is now essential, a space character does not work.
Interesting though, 0.58.8 will accept either.

Another icompatibility:
<input file> ...link to an image in here.... </input>
...well, that's as much of the syntax that I can recall right now.
the point is, 0.58.8 will display the icon, not the label, in the button, and will
return "text-here" on stdout when button is pressed.
0.59.8 will display "text-here" in the button, beside the icon, -- I don't recall
if "text-here" gets sent to stdout.

I have sent an email to the author about the following bug, about a week
ago, no reply:
gtkdialog --program=MY_DIALOG
...in 0.58.8 "MY_DIALOG" displays in the window titlebar.
...0.59.8 only displays "gtkdialog" in the titlebar.

So, yes, the latest gtkdialog does have many new features, and as soon as
the author fixes that titlebar thing I will upgrade.
I do need to do this as soon as possible, as gtkdialog is becoming popular
with Puppy developers, and the longer we leave it the more painful the
changeover will become.
Maybe someone else could contact the author about the titlebar problem,
to add weight to my request? -- he might not be treating it as high priority,
but I think my scripts are "spoilt" by not having the title on the window.
