Jack 2.8 Now Available on OS4Depot

Fixes some problems reported by Tuxedo and Samo69. It appears that Jack was fundamentally broken (the Calendar window failed to open) to users whose locale was not set to English. To get around this flaw jack now supports the following languages:

Deutch, English, Espanoal, Suomi, Francais, Italiano, Norsk, Portgués and Swedish

More will be added if I get around some character map issues here. Perhaps kas1e can help create a Russian language file. See the languages drawer, self-explanatory really. Perhaps vox can add I&I support by looking at the same drawer and sending me the file you have created IT MUST strictly be sent via email as an attachment and not pasted on a forum so that character codes are retained.

Samo69, doesn't fix that minor error message during initial installation, with Amigaworld being down I am not able to access the forum to read that particular message you had posted.
