Hi,

GAP is proud to announce its two new applications in its
collection: MPDCon and Zipper. OK, they are not new, but their
original authors stopped working on them long years ago, but
after contacting them, they are happy with us giving them a new
home on GAP, and continuing development.

MPDCon is a Music Player Daemon client, for more information,
and the changes that happend on GAP in the last couple of days,
take a look here: http://gap.nongnu.org/mpdcon/index.html

Zipper is a tool for inspecting and extracting the contents of
compressed archives, for more information, and the changed that
happend on GAP in the last couple of days take a look here:
http://gap.nongnu.org/zipper/index.html The support for BSD tar
is known to be broken, so you need GNU tar, and the default
open application (View menu entry) is known to not to work,
we'll probably keep a solution for that for a next release.
Interesting here is whether it works with all the different
versions of the command line (un)archivers out there.


I'm testing with current gnustep in SVN. With Zipper I have
these problems:

* If you open the preferences panel and then close it, Zipper
crash.

OK, I get that too, looking into it.

Me too :-) It looks like this is a bug in gui, which closes the panel
but doesn't abort the modal session. However, I'm not very eager to
fix this bug because the idea of running a preference panel in a
modal loop is a BIG user interface bug in the first place and that
really should be fixed in Zipper.

I am not able to reproduce this behaviour here (OpenSuse 12.1, gcc 4.6,
64bit). I get plenty of horrible compiler warnings from Zipper (current CVS), which really should be fixed before looking deeper into any issue with that application. Could you please describe in detail all the steps required to reproduce the crash?
