GUI incompatibility with Ubuntu 12.04

Dear Ubuntu users,

We observed an incompatibility with Ubuntu version 12.04 and older. Launching the Bocop interface can cause a system crash. In this case try to launch the interface from a terminal, and if you get this error message :

Gtk-CRITICAL **: IA__gtk_widget_style_get: assertion `GTK_IS_WIDGET (widget)' failed

then replace the BocopGUI executable with the following:

32bits: [wpdm_file id=1]

64bits : [wpdm_file id=2]

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Mac users : incompatibility with Mavericks

Dear Mac users,

Due to several incompatibilities with the latest Mac OS X version, Mavericks, mainly with the compilation of the third parties, we have to announce that Bocop is not compatible with Mavericks. We are waiting for some bugs to be fixed and we are working on a solution.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Bocop-1.1.4-release

Bocop 1.1.4 is out.

Main changes include:

  • Building process now uses CMake for better multi-platform support. Note that you need to install CMake if it’s not on your machine.
  • New help menu added in the GUI and safety check to detect the version number and the core location.
  • Several fixes to allow the partial definition of a problem.

Links and complete changelog are available on the Download page.

Windows users: workaround for incompatibility with MinGW

Dear Windows users,

The latest version of MinGW has made some changes in the pthread library, breaking the compatibility with Bocop. Until this issue is fixed, we provide an archive of a compatible MinGW installation on the Download page. All you have to do is to extract the archive to a location without spaces in its name (for instance C:, but NOT C:Program Files).

We are sorry for the inconvenience, and are working on a solution to this issue.
