Build dialog problems

The new build dialog is an improvement, but also a regression.


  • one dialog for whole build process
  • it is visible (not in background behind project window)


  • doesn’t show progress on plugin pre-compilation

So when you do a full pre-compile, we look for 10 minutes on the dialog like this:

I made a new feedback case about a change there:

Not sure if just counting up the plugins is better or use file sizes of them, so the bigger plugin files take up a bigger chunk.


Today I saw another version of the dialog:

Could it be that there are several code paths?

The first one is probably when you hit Run and the second when you build.

Can still be in the background sometimes.

I see the second one all the time when building helper apps and web apps. I thought it was related to Desktop vs. Console. I haven’t done a lot of digging because I knew you were interested in this bug, Christian.

If I notice any other patterns I’ll let you know.
