Gadgets from Aspire 3.5 in 4.0

Post by mebell »

I found that all the extra gadgets I have will not work in Aspire V4.
Will the program be changed so that the old gadgets work or are we out of luck and won't be able to use the extra gadgets?

Hi,
All the gadgets from 3.5 need to be updated for 4.0. This work is underway and new improved versions will be available from gadgets.vectric.com along with a number of new gadgets when this is complete.

The gadgets system was still experimental with earlier versions and the A.P.I was not generally available to users. With Aspire 4 (and VCarve Pro 7) the documentation will be available from gadgets.vectric.com.

It's important to note that the documentation will only allow people with programming experience to write gadgets, it will just document the classes and calls available from the Lua scripting language the gadgets are written in.
