jit.matrix.mxo broken in 5.1.4


since the 5.1.4 update. you can not read .jxf files
directly with an absolute path anymore.
(message: read myAbsolutepath/myMatrix.jxf)
you get the following error:
jit.matrix: can’t find file myAbsolutepath/myMatrix.jxf

it works, if you use a read message and select
it manualy with the filechooser.

if i replace the 5.1.4 version of the jit.matrix.mxo
with the 5.1.3 version, everything works as expected.

creation date of the jit.matrix.mxo is 29th of may 2010.

i can confirm there’s something strange.
the write message followed by a symbol works. but the read message followed by the same symbol does not. (in 42462)

it returns :

jit.matrix: can’t find file /Users/G/Desktop/truc.jxf
print: read /Users/G/Desktop/truc.jxf -1

this is definitely a bug.

Thanks for the report. This is now fixed and we hope to provide an update with the installer soon. In the meantime, here is a fixed version, which *also* works with writing with absolute paths, something which was a problem before.

And here’s a fixed windows version in the meantime.
