Title: Zip package?
Post by: tretton on January 30, 2006, 06:31:27 pm
Will C::B be available as a zip package (no-install) for Win in the future? That would be sweet. :)

Hello,

Do you mean the sources or the binaries? Nightly builds are available as 7zip package (which is better than zip IMHO :)).

Oh, I meant the binaries. Yes, I know about the nightlies, but will the final release also be available as a zip/7z?

I am not sure if it will be or not. May be one of the devs can say something about it. An installation package is anyway easier to install for most of the users, but if several users would prefer to have a zip/7zip, then may be it would be possible to have both.

Agreed. Having stable releases as .zip as an installer version as well, is a great way to say "this IDE is not bloated unlike others that requieres various CDs and almost half an hour of installation and fills the system with dll all over the place". :P

Yes, exactly. :) I hate installers, you never know what they're doing to your system... I'll just wait and see what happens. The nightlies are coming along great, by the way! Great job!
