Software News   Software News : Nightly builds of MUI3 and MUI4 for AmigaOS available
   posted by _Steve_ on 15-Jun-2014 15:24:39 (2361 reads)
The MUI for AmigaOS development team has revised their build system and is happy to announce that it provides now daily nightly builds of their latest development sources to the public. Please find the respective nightly build archives of MUI3 and MUI4 but also at the bottom of the download section.

Read more...


Please note that these builds are generated automatically from the current source repository (SVN), which means that they are completely untested - there's absolutely no guarantee that they even start up or work without crashing or damaging your current installation.

Bottom line: USE THESE BINARIES AT YOUR OWN RISK! THEY ARE JUST SNAPSHOTS OF THE CURRENT DEVELOPMENT OF MUI AND MAY FAIL IN ANY ASPECT.

If you find any reproducible bug on these binaries, please file a bug report on the official MUI bugtracker stating which nightly build (YYYY-MM-DD) your tests are based on, otherwise we can't do anything about it.

What do the nightly downloads contain ?

The MUI4.0 downloads are about 3Mb in size yet the nightly build is 12Mb.

Just gcc's 'strip' to make them smaller

The nightly build archives contain unstripped binaries to ensure that possible crashlogs contain the file and line information as readable information already.

Don't do that. The additional binary size does NOT consume any memory at run time. But it makes debugging LOTS easier in case of a crash.

Doesn't help, it is the download time that worries me not the final size of the binary.

Understood, it makes sense now. Thanks for the clarification.

Hmm, why do you have 2 separate downloads then (normal & debug) ?

The debug archive consists of muimaster.library only which is built with debugging output enabled. That explains why this archive is smaller than the normal archive, which contains all external classes as well. The debug version will print out LOTS of stuff on the serial line. Usually this version is only required if detailed logs are necessary to find out the cause of an issue.
