Hi there,

I'm just new here and I see the first post about RC3 in this thread was there since June, 2006, and now we're in Nov, 2006, and RC3 is still not officially released yet?! That's why I have this really simple question here: when will we have the RC3 rolled out publicly? Thanks :)

 :D If you read the previous replies to this question in that thread, you'll see that nobody can tell you when RC3 will be released .. but Nightly Builds are a good way to forget about RC3 !!!

I have an idea. Probably you have to make an updater from nightly builds and the nightly build with that updater will be the CodeBlocks 1.0!!!

That is not so funny to go everyday to the CB web cite to check and then download the newer version :x.

If users will have automatic updater for most common OS - they will be most happiest users in the wold :lol:.

I think that is on the roadmap for version 1.0 http://wiki.codeblocks.org/index.php?title=Roadmap_for_version_1.0

If you really want RC3, just download the latest nightly and rename the file to codeblocks_RC3.7z

viola!

Probably the solution is to download a nightly build and label it with the date and collect all know bugs /issues with that particular build and inform all users about it. When it is recommended to users, give them all the information about this particular release and ask them NOT to download from the official site but use your chosen version, and then all features/bugs/problems will be "stable" and you can talk about compatibilities and so on.

Of course this could be done by the C::B team, which is easy : just choose a particular nightly build and label it RC3 and give them all the info about that build and so on, and then everybody will get a "stable" version (by "stable" I mean the same set of feature/bugs/issues etc) RC3 doesn't have to be perfect and all will expect bugs/problems as in any "Release". Why not do it ?

Yes its kind of become an ongoing joke really. Basically forget about RC3 just get the nightly.

heh, wow, Feb 28 2007 and no RC3... actually, NO official release!!?

Anyway, code::block's a nice IDE even its RC2 version.
I guess I'll try downloading the nightly builds from now on.

Hi developers

Thanks for codeblocks - my favorite IDE: Fast, bugfree, open source, crossplatform, works with many compilers.

I'm wondering why there is no stable releases of codeblocks. I don't mean stable as in do-not-crash, but stable as in branch-with-few-or-none-updates.

The nightly builds satisfy stable as do-not-crash, but as there is a new "release" every night it is not a branch-with-few-or-none-updates.

My guess is that the reason is one of the following:
a) nobody has time to do the work to set up a branch, do the build, collect bug reports.
b) some critical bug/problem in the code is not solved
c) there is no user-supporter on the development team (only great coders).

This thread has been read more than 10,000 times, quite a lot, so I think there must be somebody out there that would like to give a hand to make a stable release happen.

Is it possible for you (developers) to define some tasks that could be done by the community to create a stable branch, with half-yearly releases?

Regards,
Peer

The official reason for not bringing out a stable release is that some developers want to implement a view things before releasing a stable release. Some of these things should be very easy to implement (a few days) but sometimes it is very difficult.
The good news is that there has been a bugfix week and there is planned one over a couple of weeks.
