It's time to update the FET benchmarks.
Sadly the old benchmark is pretty out of date. You can still see the old results here:
https://lalescu.ro/liviu/fet/forum/index.php?topic=166.msg729#msg729

FET improved pretty much in speed the last years, because:
- the FET algorithm is better now
- FET support multi core CPUs
- Qt 6 is faster than Qt 5
- FET is compiled now with 64 bit instead of 32 bit
- the compilers are better now

The old benchmark also become too easy for new CPUs and it can't be compiled with Qt 6 anymore.

If you are interested in speed improvements you can maybe already view some of my videos:

Tips and Tricks / Dark mode - Black interface color
August 09, 2023, 12:50:21 PM
Since the user am suggested it in the guestbook: (Please do suggestions only in the forum)

If you want to use a dark mode. So if you want to change the interface color to black (or any other color of your OS color) please have look at this videos:

Windows:

General Stuff / Still using Winodws 7 or 32 bit?
April 22, 2023, 09:50:07 AM
Are you still using Windows 7 or 32 bit only?

You should update, because swtichting from 32 bit to 64 bit will speed-up generating a timetable ~10%.

Switching from Qt 5 (runs on Windows 7) to Qt 6 (doesn't run on Windows 7) increase around 8%.

So moving from Windows 7 32 bit to Windows 10 64 bit will increase the generating speed with FET around 18%!

(Also Windows 7 didn't get any security update anymore. There are security bugs in Windows 7 that won't be fixed anymore. It also look like you can still upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10 still for free.)

Hi

should i mark in the teachers and students (substitution)-tables if it is the last activity. So the teachers and students know if they need to care about closing the window, tidy up and lock the door?

Maybe just add a 🧹 ?

Talk It Up! / Dark mode
April 04, 2023, 10:49:21 AM
Hallo,

i am currently thinking more about dark mode. Please help me and answer the question.
If you have trouble with dark mode in FET, TiTiTo, StElTo or TSC, then please leave a comment and also write your used operating system.

Thank you

Please use the newer TiTiTo 8.4.9! See here:
https://lalescu.ro/liviu/fet/forum/index.php?topic=5858.0


OLD INFORMATION BELOW:

This will be the last Windows 32bit compatible version, since I will update to Qt 6. So newer Windows versions will run only on Windows 10 or later with 64 bit. Please update your OS soon if you still use an 32 bit OS or Windows 7/8.

Don't use this version at school if you still use and old TiTiTo version 6.9.1 or older, because I changed the database structure a bit.
But you can use this version already if you are preparing the next school year or if you import your data set once again (export from TiTiTo and import again).

Many thanks to Benahmed Abdelkrim, Liviu Lalescu and ngoctp29121982 for the updated translations!

You can download the new version here:
Windows 7 or higher: https://www.volker-dirr.de/TiTiTo-7.9.7.exe
MacOS 10.10 or higher: https://www.volker-dirr.de/TiTiTo-7.9.7.dmg
Linux: --- please contact me if you need a Linux version ---

TSC - Translation Source Check / What is TSC?
March 11, 2023, 06:54:01 PM
TSC helps you to find bugs in the source and in the translation of FET, TiTiTo and StElTo.

If you want to see how it looks like, just download and test it or have a look at this video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qkj6yR5F2-k

I released TSC (Translation-Source-Check) today. It is a free tool for FET, TiTiTo and StElTo translators and helps to locate wrong translations.

You can download it here:
Windows 7 or higher: https://www.volker-dirr.de/TSC-1.0.8b.exe
MacOS 10.10 or higher: https://www.volker-dirr.de/TSC-1.0.8b.dmg
Linux: TODO

The macOS might show some incorrect characers in the main dialog. Not critical. I will try to fix that.

Talk It Up! / 100.000 downloads on sourceforge
March 02, 2022, 05:26:12 PM
FET has got a new "open source excellence" badge on its site.
That mean FET has more than 100.000 downloads.
(Of course a lot of downloads from different versions, so number of users will be (much) lower)
see:

German / Deutsch / Digitales Klassenbuch

Gerade in der Erprobung: TiTiTo unterstützt den Export im Untisformat. Dies wird von oft externen Programmen für ein digitales Klassenbuch benutzt.

Talk It Up! / My Break
October 30, 2020, 04:29:23 PM
I must sadly do a longer break.
So i won't read the forum in the next weeks.
You can still write me an email. See my homepage. But please don't do it if you can ask the same question other guys here in the forum.
Thank you.
#17
I am currently working on a new feature:
The substitution table can now have up to two news ticker. One in the top and one on the bottom.
They can (scroll from right to left) or (scroll from left to right) or (just be static). (Or disabled)

Please let me know if the tickers are fine (Of course you can choose speed, color and font yourself).
I only need to know if it is working fine on different devices.

Please see a preview here:

General Stuff / How to change widget style
July 31, 2020, 10:24:23 PM
There is a very easy variant how to change the widget style:
open a command promt (for exmaple by clicking the windows icon in the bottom left corner and write 'cmd')
Navigate to your fet file (for example by writing:
cd downloads
cd fet-5.45.1
By the way: you don't need to write the whole line, only a few charaters and press the tab key)

Now execute fet with this command:
fet -style fusion

do it similar in an other command promt. But start FET with:
fet -style windows

(the same trick should work with most other Qt programms too. So also with TiTiTo, StElTo, ...)

Google mail has smtp support disabled by default.
If you want to sent a mail, then you need to enable smtp in your google settings. You need to allow external software.
I found a small video that show you how to do it: You only need to do the first IMAP stuff. IMAP is only for reading e-mails.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D-NYmDWiFjU

You can also use port 587 with TLSSTART
(i saw that 2 sentences in the test mail are missing, i will fix that with the next TiTiTo release. But that doesn't matter much. It is working fine with google mail.)
#20
I released a new TiTiTo version.
Don't use it at school if you are currently using TiTiTo version 6.4.8 or older, because I changed the database structure a bit.
But you can use this version already if you are preparing the next school year or if you import your dataset once again (export from TiTiTo and import again).

You can download it here:
--- REMOVED, PLEASE CHECK NEWER RELEASE TOPIC ---

Read a short manual: https://www.volker-dirr.de/manual.pdf

* I can compile native Linux version. Just write me an email.
If you can't wait for a native compiled version you might already test it with the Windows version even under Linux! You can run it with Wine ( https://www.winehq.org/ ) and CrossOver ( http://www.codeweavers.com/ ) under Linux.

I always forgot to write: I want to say "Thank you" for all the guys that helped me with translations, bugs reports and nice suggestions:
Especial Liviu Lalescu, Benahmed Abdelkrim and Dietmat Deuster.
But of course also Crescenzo Velleca, Siniša Vujčić, Henrique Belo and all the other guys.
