Version 5.05.00 - 01/07/2020 00:00

NEWS 5.05.00 (01/07/2020)

Due to the standby of version 6 this version includes some of the new features that were already developed. Here is a summary description of these new functions.
1. Partial code rewriting

It should allow me to better manage future developments and facilitate maintenance operations and correction of bugs.
2. Modification of the database recording

The choice to maintain the high-performance h2database system is evolving to store the data, outside of working hours, in a form that allows information to be retrieved without using the database engine, and therefore without oStorybook. The format is of the "SQL transaction" type, allowing for importing into any compatible database (MySQL for example). This format is compressed (ZIP) in order to reduce the size of the file without altering performance when opening the file. The extension chosen is ".osbk", which eventually allows the file to be opened from a file explorer under the condition that the necessary system associations have been set up.
3. Creation of the Scenario mode

This is the most important change. It will allow the screenwriter to focus on the writing without worrying about the formatting of the text. For more information on this point see the online documentation at (under development).
4. Other interventions

A few corrections were made, in particular concerning the useful interface for translating oStorybook into another language (the UTF8 coding was defective). Similarly, the use of a translated version has been made easier (replacement of the "console" mode with a parameter at launch by adding a simple option in the preferences).
