gcalctool v5.6.21 [stable]
Posted on: 07/11/2005 04:17 PM

Gcalctool is the default GNOME desktop calculator.

It has Basic, Advanced, Financial and Scientific modes. Internally it uses multiple precision arithmetic to produce results to a high degree of accuracy.

This release is for the GNOME 2.11 release train

Note that in order to build, gcalctool now requires Gtk+ v2.6.1 (or later).

Changes since the last gcalctool version (5.6.14).

* Fixed bug #153854. When the user changes modes, a warning dialog is
displayed to let them know that their current display will be cleared
and the base reset to decimal. The user has the option of checking a
toggle box on the dialog, that will prevent this warning from being
displayed again.

* Fixed bug #309294. Adjustments to allow gcalctool to successfully build
on Solaris with pkgconfig gt;= 0.17.1.

* Fixed bug #309182. In non-arithmetic precdence mode, gcalctool can now
correctly change the sign of the exponent on scientific numbers again.

* Fixed bug #308408. gcalctool can now correctly convert the hexadecimal
numbers "A-F" to other bases in "use arithmetic operator precedence mode".

* Fixed bug #305619. Calculations with stored register values in arithmetic
operator precedence mode, now work correctly.

* Fixed bug #305034. In "Use Arithmetic Precedence" mode, when switching
the format (e.g. from ENG to FIX), the displayed value switches to zero
(in the corresponding format, so e.g. 0.0 or 0e+0, ...).

* Fixed bug #305467. gcalctool no longer crashes under the following
- type "f" to bring up the user function menu.
- dismiss the menu by clicking elsewhere with the mouse.
- type another character which isn't in the range "0" to "9".
