Golly 3.0b3

EDIT: Links to 3.0b3 have been removed because Golly 3.0 is now available from Sourceforge:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/golly/ ... golly-3.0/

If you're using any of the beta versions of 3.0 then make sure you upgrade!

Noice. So, please tell us the exact cause of that weird crash bug.
Everyone, please stop posting B/S about CA
x = 17, y = 10, rule = B3/S23

I don't like how the 'converting pattern' dialogue triggers a notification, and occasionally makes the Golly window gain focus. I'm running 3.0b3, by the way, on windows 7 64 bit.

Still getting that bug where I get spammed with error messages after 7 generations of running this pattern:
x = 1, y = 1, rule = R500,C0,M0,S0..0,B1..1,NM
o!

You only get that progress dialog if Golly is switching to a different algorithm and the current algorithm contains a very large pattern and the conversion process takes longer than about 2 seconds. There are important reasons for showing the dialog:

1. It tells you that Golly is doing something and hasn't just hung.
2. It lets you cancel the conversion if you don't really want the old pattern in the new algorithm.

It's not spam and it's not an error message. It's a warning to let you know that the pattern has grown too big for the LtL algorithm and can't be generated any further. See Help > Algorithms > Larger than Life for details about the limits in an unbounded universe (it ain't really unbounded).

If you're saying you still see that message appearing in a loop and Golly crashes then you must still be using 3.0b2, so delete that version from your system.

Tested it on both 3.0b2 and 3.0b3, and it still happens on both.

I don't see any bug on my WinXP or Win7 systems. Can anybody else confirm if 3.0b3 still crashes on Windows with muzik's pattern?

EDIT: @muzik? Did you download 3.0b3 again as I said in the top post? You might be using the old build of 3.0b3 I did just for drc/dvgrn to test. When you start up the new 3.0b3 build there should NOT be any OpenGL info in the status bar.

It works fine for me on Windows 10 64bit and Windows XP 64bit using 64bit Golly 3.0b3.

Can't believe I was stupid enough to not consider that - need to try it when I get home.

Can we have 'History' rules natively supported for non-totalistic rules?
