Split: Stable and Trunk
Posted: Fri Aug 01, 2014 11:19 pm
Just out of curiosity, is there going to be a minor update soonish while work towards 1.82 progresses?
For information and discussion about Oolite.
If you mean updates on what is being done, then reading this thread will give you all the information needed. If you mean a new binary release containing what is there for 1.82 up to this point, then no, there is not going to be one until 1.82 is declared feature complete and production-ready. Still. you can download nightly builds for your operating system at any time and see what progress is being made. Usual disclaimers apply - nightlies are for testing purposes and correspond to cutting-edge development, could run fine today and be horribly broken and non-functional tomorrow. Check the stickies in the subforum corresponding to your OS for more info about this.mossfoot wrote:Just out of curiosity, is there going to be a minor update soonish while work towards 1.82 progresses?
Ahh, you meant 1.80.1? Yes, but that will be a bug-fix update to 1.80 only. It will not contain any new features that you may see described here. Nightlies are your safest bet if you want a sneak peek of features coming up. The good thing is that they are designed so that you can installl them in parallel with the official 1.80 and remove them whenever you want.mossfoot wrote:Ah, I had heard of a possible "bugfix" edition would be in the offing in the meantime.
Yes.. it's called aThargoid wrote:is there a simple way to allow 1.80 and trunk to share an OXZ set without maintaining two gnustep folders in parallel?
/homebased installation in Linux..
/home/diziet/.Oolite/AddOnsand they also share the same GNUstep OXZ folder. (unlike with Windows, in a
/homeinstall of Linux, GNUstep is not a folder inside the Oolite folder; Oolite is a folder inside the GNUstep folder) OXPs that need to be different (say,
AddOns/Config, for example) I install separately in each version's own
AddOnsfolder. If I require that an OXZ be available to one version and not the other, that would go in the version-specific
AddOnsfolder as well.

Do note that we don't guarantee this will work - going from 1.80 to 1.81 should always work, but 1.81 to 1.80 (or more generally any later version to earlier version) may sometimes require manual editing of your savefile.Bangbangduck wrote:If trunk breaks I just go back to 1.80, with the same save file and carry on.
