How to Upgrade to version 3.0.6,
With versions of XTension previous to 3.0.6, there was a mis-match in the formats
of the scheduled events, and it was not possible to simply move the database between
different 'native' (68k vs PPC) versions.
and quit worrying about PPC versus 68k native versions...
With version 3.0.6, the database should now be compatible between 'native' versions.
You should be able to easily move your XTension database between your 'host' and
'monitor' Macs without a problem. (The way it should have been all along...)
Only one little thing:
In all other cases, you should now be able to simply replace your old version of
XTension with 3.0.6 (or later), and start it up...
You Cannot simply copy a 68k database to a PPC Mac.
IF the database was last saved by an 'old' 68k version of XTension, then
the PPC version will not be able to import the scheduled events at all.
Just open the 68k database with 68k XTension, version 3.0.6 (or later)
When you Quit, the database will be converted so that it can be read by both
the 68k and PPC native versions of XTension.
Of course you will have to serialize the new version ...
Remember that if you want to employ the new 'choose icon' verbs
for dynamically selecting unit icons, then you need the new XTension
You will also want to download the new XTension Manual.
