* Updated wbar to 2.3.0

New wbar has a bug and it leads a segmentation fault when --nofont  option is used.

I patched source code and here it seems works fine now. Patch is:
In /src/core/Main.cc line 195 where:
Code: [Select]
if (optparser.isSet(BALFA) || optparser.isSet(FALFA) || optparser.isSet(FILTER) || !(p->getTitle().empty() || optparser.isSet(NOFONT)))it should be:
Code: [Select]
if (optparser.isSet(BALFA) || optparser.isSet(FALFA) || optparser.isSet(FILTER) || !(p->getTitle().empty()) || optparser.isSet(NOFONT))
BTW, thanks to Team Tiny Core for this new release!  :)

I usually run a comparison to the previous release or release candidate whenever a new one shows up. This time I noted that a kernel driver (i.e. '.../drivers/net/pcmcia/xirc2ps_cs.ko.gz') was removed. As 'modules.alias' and 'modules.dep' are still unchanged (i.e. 'depmod' was not run after the file removal) I wonder whether this is intentional or rather an "accident".

I actually did make the change to System Stats but then forgot to merge into the final image.
From the posts so far looks like I will be doing a 4.5.1 so you will have soon.

Good catch, thanks! I have restored this item. Looks like I will release a 4.5.1 with these adjustments.

@AmatCoder

Please report the bug upstream too. ( http://code.google.com/p/wbar/ )
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Title text with the white outline (shadow?) looks ugly on my notebook even with Xorg and not in line with appearance of other texts. Just a cosmetic of cource, however.... Screenshot below doesn't give back its real appearance on the physical screen:

Why has  Apps GUI OnBoot, OnDemand, & Md5Check case insensitive sort order while Load App Locally has not?

/usr/local/share/applications/tinycore-scm.desktop is not needed, can be removed.
