jLog V 4.6 - Release Notes

jLog V 4.6 can be installed directly over a previous version (or after first uninstalling the previous version). Make sure you have BACKUP COPIES OF YOUR LOG FILES (i.e the *.jdb-files) stored somewhere else. I recommend that you strongly consider updating the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) before installing the new version (links to the newest versions can be found on jLog's Java download page). Frequent update of the JRE is generally recommended (Java is being continuously improved!).

Mac Classic

Check that you have the Mac Look and Feel for Java installed. The Mac option should appear in the File->Look and Feel menu. If not, install the mac.jar and swing.properties in the lib directory of the Java VM.

To allow for Look and Feel switching, the swing.properties file may need to be added to the Java VM lib directory. This is an example of the content of the swing.properties file with 'Mac' added to the three basic Look and Feels:

# Swing properties


swing.installedlafs = motif,windows,metal,mac
swing.installedlaf.motif.name = CDE/Motif
swing.installedlaf.motif.class = com.sun.java.swing.plaf.motif.MotifLookAndFeel
swing.installedlaf.windows.name = Windows
swing.installedlaf.windows.class = com.sun.java.swing.plaf.windows.WindowsLookAndFeel
swing.installedlaf.metal.name = Metal
swing.installedlaf.metal.class = javax.swing.plaf.metal.MetalLookAndFeel
swing.installedlaf.mac.name = Mac
swing.installedlaf.mac.class = com.sun.java.swing.plaf.mac.MacLookAndFeel

Place the mac.jar in the same lib directory. You may want to try the macos.jar (described in the article Java on the Mac) by adding it to the swing.properties file as shown here:

swing.installedlafs = motif,windows,metal,mac,macos
swing.installedlaf.macos.name = MacOS
swing.installedlaf.macos.class = it.unitn.ing.swing.plaf.macos.MacOSLookAndFeel
