FreeTextBox 3.0.6 release (IE7 support)

August 3, 2005 | Uncategorized | 24 Comments

I just finished up work on 3.0.6 (download). Here the change log:

  • Added: new project for ASP.NET 2.0 (FreeTextBox.sln renamed to FreeTextBox-2003.sln)
  • Fixed: the default dll (3.0.5000.6; which is ASP.NET 1.1) now runs properly on ASP.NET 2.0 Beta 2 web servers
  • Fixed/Added: support for
  • Updated: Japanese language file
  • Started: IE memory problems.

Proof 😉

FreeTextBox on IE7

On IE Memory Leaks

I am working to re-write the event coding for IE to prevent the
memory leaks, but I decided to release 3.0.6 early to get IE7 support
out the door. I am rewriting the event code to take advantage of an
idea from called .
When attaching events to objects, EventCache records all the closures
and then manually releases them in the window.onunload event. IE should
be able to do it natively, but it doesn’t. The memory footprint of IE6
increases about 4-5MB every time a page with FreeTextBox is loaded or
refreshed. Happily, IE7 (beta1) looses only about 800KB. That’s a ton
better than IE6, but still a little behind Firefox which doesn’t really
lost any memory. Here’s hoping IE7 can do even better by the release

  10. As the demand and use of android devices have grown by leaps and bounds,
    the emulator found it difficult to keep pace. Access to several popular websites is
    included thanks to dedicated applications. It
    helps to improve constraint and free the rigid body from two degrees
    of freedom.

    White smoke should not be confused with the thin wisps of steam that comes from the tailpipe when you start your car.
    A head gasket failure results in a leak, which in turn produces white
    smoke. All these years I have constantly maintained
    which patients need to be told the truth or offered with enough and impartial info to enable those todecide
    for themselves.

    Often people are gripped by intense feelings like anger,
    hatred, depression, stress, boredom, loneliness, etc.

    I’ve had a customer of mine decide to give up his long time love of chocolate, and decide to just focus on calorie counting, minor
    exercise, and portion sizing.

Hi, I'm John Dyer. In my day job, I build websites and create online seminary software for a seminary in Dallas. I also like to release open source tools including a pretty popular HTML5 video player and build tools that help people find best bible commentaries and do bible study. And just for fun, I also wrote a book on the theology of technology and media.
