Error in hrev 50028

The issue isn't as bad as I first feared. After installing this version, any yab program built or bound with a version of yab that uses on a PM version of haiku will run again. Those made with earlier versions of yab or Haiku will have to be re-built.

But users with an older version does not have the chance to use your apps if you update them on your repository server.
Are you upset that I fixed yab to work on recent nightlies? No matter what the outcome of the ticket, this will be required.

The GetLatest-yab script has been updated to work with this change, only commenting out the line in the ColorTools.h file for the latest nightlies. Any yab program built / bound on a PM nightly will work with this change as the change only modifies, but is compatible with previous versions.

All I can do is insure backward compatibility and with this change to haiku that is limited to PM versions of Haiku and yab 1.7.5 or higher. There may be a way to do a binary patch for older versions, but that is beyond my pay grade.

In order to convince the Haiku devs that this is indeed an issue, a comment on listing apps that don't work on recent nightlies might be a help.
They are looking at closing the ticket. If you believe this needs to be fixed in Haiku, not just changing yab, you should comment on it.
This ticket has been closed by the Haiku devs as I am the only person to have argued for it to be fixed in Haiku. We will all need to re-build our programs and test them in recent nightlies.
