Yes it has been a very long time since the last update. And worse yet only a few changes are here. I hope they help some of you though - and don't break anything you have been using!
See the readme file for details.
No, there is still no way to reload and rebuild from a saved .MMMP file. This just isn't anything I've gotten back to for a long time, so only the most pressing issues I have fixes for are addressed. I hope to get back to VB6 programming again on a regular basis someday, I agree it still has a lot of life left in it. MMM has been working well for me on the occasions where I need to make a fix to one of my own applications. I hate to hear about problems the rest of you have that I can't do anything about though.
Please: If you have a bug send me a zipped Project folder with a test case that fails if at all possible.
And no, I still don't have clearance for a few things in MMM that would let me release the source. I have "clean room" recreated two classes though by paying another VB6er who has never seen the source. That leaves two more I hope he can reproduce, or that the authors release me from Copyright restrictions soon.
As most of us know the economy has driven us into other things besides VB6 for income. I'm appalled at the low-dollar people being hired even to do VB to VB.Net now who don't have a clue about VB (and I wonder about their VB.Net understanding). Yikes! At least I make a few dollars coming in to troubleshoot when their employers get desperate enough. I think I'm down to two new VB6 projects a year now however.
I hope things are going well for the rest of you. Good luck with this 0.8 version.
Oh yeah, the download: MMM 0.8
