0.94 will support 64-bit Windows

January 13, 2011

A switch to the MinGW-TDM toolchain makes it now possible to support 64 bit JVMs on a 64 bit Windows OS. Previously, jpathwatch on 64 bit JVMs had to use the polling WatchService implementation because there was no 64 bit native DLL available.

Other changes in 0.94 include increasing the number of concurrently watchable directories beyond 63 on Windows, getting more frequent ENTRY_MODIFY events (also Windows) and other fixes.

0.94 will be released within the following weeks.

      I’m thinking about releasing 0.94 soon, however, there is still an outsanding issue on Linux I want to fix.

      we’re talking weeks, depening on when I get time. Don’t forget this is my hobby…

      However, I can be bribed with donations (see link on the top right 😉

    Is there anything that can be done to help push the release out the door? Happy to help or test.

    Not really, the test suite is fully automated. But as said above, this is my hobby, so I develop jpathwatch on the weekend mostly in my spare time.

    However, donations are certainly an incentive to speed up things and spend more of my time on it.

    Especially if you’re using jpathwatch commercially (and judging from your email address you probably are), consider a donation; it shows appreciation and will help to keep the project going.

    The link is on the top right of the web page.
