Unofficial Code::Blocks installer for Windows (svn 10010)
« on: September 02, 2010, 05:08:35 pm »
UPDATE: Updated to svn revision 10010.

This build of Code::Blocks still is compiled using TDM-GCC 4.8.1 and wxWidgets 2.8.12.
In the near future, wxWidgets 3.x will be used.

Download link (Sourceforge).

This installer is *not* an official release, nor is the provided Code::Blocks version expected to be as thouroughly tested as the "nightly builds" the Code::Blocks Team provides us with.
It does, however, include a few experimental plugins and patches that might not otherwise be tried out by more users.

Use this simple to use installer to promote Code::Blocks among your peers!

Highlights:
  • Unlike the official installer, this installer automatically detects your account permissions and proposes a default installation path accordingly.
    If your account has the priviledges of an administrator and you want to install as admin, but you have UAC enabled, right-click on the installer and run it as admin.
  • In addition to the functionality of the nightly builds, the following additional plugins are included in this version of Code::Blocks:
        - cbDiff
        - CodePaste
        - CompileOnDemand
        - ColorCoder
        - ListToolbox
        - UUID Generator
        - XPMEditor
  • A few dictionaries for the SpellChecker plugin are bundled.
  • This build of Code::Blocks proudly adopts the alternate icons created by Alpha (see this thread).
  • Some community patches were applied:
        - Patch #3309: Add "Close all project files" menu option in selected project (by alatar_)
        - Patch #3237: Automatic escape sequences when inside a string (by Alpha).

Changes to installer
  • None
Disclaimer: This installer contains binaries of unstable versions of Code::Blocks and its tools and plugins, and is not endorsed by the Code::Blocks Team themselves, so any incorrect behaviour you may find therein should be tested for in the official release and nightly versions before you decide to report any bugs.

Download link (setup program inside a .rar archive)
That's a good attempt, however, to comply with GPL you should really add the source code you've used, too.

I have merely compiled the source code from the trunk, unchanged. Perhaps a link to the svn source (or the forum thread where I downloaded the source, in the case of cbDiff) would suffice?

A link should be enough for sources cobvered by GPL v3 (as C::B is).

You have to give detailed information where to find the sources and how to build the binaries from it.

Are you sure, that all sources are GPL v3 sources (or similar) ?
Otherwise you should check the licenses for the sources carefully

I confirm that XPMEditor is GPL v3 (I have indicated it in the XML Manifest file of the plugin).
For the 3 other plugins, I do not know.

Every now and then, I shall, certainly. I have updated to the same revision as the latest nightly (svn 6570). The link has been updated in the first post. :)

The license of cbDiff is GPL v3, however it uses the Diff Template Library,
which uses the BSD license http://code.google.com/p/dtl-cpp/source/browse/COPYING

Is is ok, to unpack a normal nightly on top of the installation?

It is better to use an empty folder.

It's generally not a good idea to mix the official nightly builds with these installations, as the binaries are not compatible.
If you are thinking of combining additional plugins with the nightly, it is better to checkout from the svn server and compile everything from the beginning.

Just a bump to let you know that the unofficial installer has been updated to the latest nightly (6906). Look for the download link at the first post. Happy new year everyone! :)

The installer is updated to svn revision 6920. All plugins were included, and the glitch that impacted the usability of the Spellchecker plugin is fixed in this version. The download link was updated in the first post of the thread. :)
