I was able to get a valid xml file by using escape sequences, but it would be nice to have these fields go through an escape converter on export.

For example, one field had
Code:
Bell’s Winter White Ale
but the apostrophe is not valid xml, it should be
Code:
Bell & # 8217 ; s Winter White Ale
*without the spaces, this form evidently converts xml escape characters back to text
I will get a bug report opened on launchpad and look into it. I thought we had fixed this when we did the xml -> database conversion, but apparently not.

Since this seems to be the active BrewTarget thread with the developers...

Any idea why the Ubuntu repository doesn't have the latest release? Can you guys make your own PPA instead of install a deb file for the latest release?

One of us at least.

I try to avoid the build systems if I can. I will ask a few others and see if we can get something posted to brewtarget.org/downloads.

Cool, thanks.

I just think it would be beneficial to everyone in the end. You don't have to tell Ubuntu users to update to the latest if it is in the repository or if there was a PPA. I am not a developor or anything but this is my understanding, and I prefer not using debs directly as I like simple updates.

Oh ya, and thanks for the software!

I asked. The answer seems to be that Ubuntu won't update a package in stable unless it is fixing a show-stopping kind of bug.

I'm not an ubuntu sort of person, but I think we do have a PPA? https://code.launchpad.net/~brewtarg...ntu/brewtarget gives the details.

Don't grab the v2.1.0 build. It isn't quite ripe yet and will likely do bad things to your database.

I did some digging and this is an oddity with Qt as far as I can tell. It escapes some characters (like ampersands and greater-than signs) like it should, but it doesn't other characters. The really hard part is figuring out how to fix it.

I'm still working on it, but for right now the best I can offer is don't put XML special characters into the names. Yeah, it isn't really a good answer.

Thanks for the response, but looks like only 2.1.0 is in the PPA for 14.04 which I am running. I assume because its meant for the devs to use.

sudo apt-cache policy brewtarget
brewtarget:
Installed: (none)
Candidate: 2.1.0-0~20140804~ubuntu14.04.1
Version table:
2.1.0-0~20140804~ubuntu14.04.1 0
500 http://ppa.launchpad.net/brewtarget-...target/ubuntu/ trusty/main amd64 Packages
2.0.2-1 0
500 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ trusty/universe amd64 Packages
100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

No worries, now that I understand it, I can at least edit the output. Unfortunately, most of the non-escaped characters are in the style notes

Brewtarget works and upgrades pretty good in SolydX - (when I can keep that working .... - ....... I spend more time lurking on the SolydX forums trying to fix what I can, instead of using it much) I end up having to use the M$ version more than the Linux version - which, thanks to Mikfire is now working well!! I was never able to do much with any of the *buntu's.

Just a question for the developers -

Is there any way you could add an AAU column to the Hops page? I know it sounds silly, but sometimes it'd be nice/fast to see calculated AAU's for recipes both developed and copied. There's a lot of recipes out there that just list AAU and it'd be nice to add/modify hop additions without doing math on the side.
