GLI help headers not updating

Description

When GLI help files are updated (with translations?) the headers are not updating. Anna apparently knows about this and is looking into it.

  • status changed from new to closed
  • resolution set to fixed

By default GLI reads the Help index files that contain the GLI Help headers from the jar file. So even if the local help_index.xml file has been changed, the updates can't be reflected in GLI, unless the current GLI.jar is deleted (so GLI use the local files instead) or a new GLI.jar is created. This causes unnecessary work for translators who want to view their GLI Help translations.

So now the default option is changed: if GLI applet is in use, read from the Jar file as before; otherwise, read from the local files. This is also consistent with other read operations in the HelpFrame? class.
