Dex Release 0.6d Available

A candidate release of Dex 0.6 is available over here.  This list is not exhaustive, but it includes:

  • WebDriver Task – This allows the use of WebGL and other technologies through the use of a Chrome or Firefox cobrowser.
  • Processing Task – This allows for the programming of Processing right inside of Dex.  Results are displayed in a cobrowser.
  • Many Visualization improvements; too many to list if I could even remember them.
  • TMI Task – A table manipulation language written for Dex.   It’s functional but poorly documented.  I promise to improve the documentation before the official 0.6 release.
  • Circular Heat – A new circular heatmap visual.
  • .Grid – A new table visualization which allows searching by column.
  • Google – A web tool that jumps straight to Google.  Useful for testing the internal Dex browser’s capability and for browsing inside of Dex.

Problems?

On Windows, simply click the Dex.exe icon and hopefully everything works fine.  If it does not, then try double-clicking the Dex.jar.  This is an executable jar which should work equally well.

Linux users should run the startDex.sh script to launch Dex.  I believe this will work on OSX as well, but have yet to test it out.

Feel free to contact me at patrick145@msn.com with any usage or installation issues.  I am happy to help.

Work Remaining

Before 0.6 is official, I have lots of documentation to complete as well as fixing any installation issues and/or bugs encountered in the early releases.

Thanks for your patience!

    Great software. I get a JavaFX Launcher error when running Dex 0.6. Any idea how I fix that?
