TnFOX is available in parts so that you can pick and choose what you
The current version of TnFOX is v0.88 and it was released on 13th June 2008
The next version of TnFOX will be v0.90 and is due whenever FOX v1.8 is updated
All past releases have been tagged with obvious labels and signed off. The old subversion repository has been locked from further edits. Quick links into the GIT repos (both sourceforge and github are mirrors):
25th March 2010: I had been waiting for what seems like ages for GIT support to become mature for Windows (i.e. a GUI like TortoiseGIT) so I could migrate all the SVN repos here over to use GIT instead. I have been a long time fan of Subversion, in fact I was using it well before it reached its first stable release because it was SO much better than CVS which was truly appalling as a viable source revision control system. However, Subversion's design does make synchronising between my local master repos and the internet based ones inconvenient and tricky, and as my internet connection is neither fast nor hugely reliable having a local master repo is more than essential. GIT solves all these issues as there are no master repos really, so I finished the migration today after several days of experimentation to develop a good workflow (and work around bugs on the Windows implementations). From now on TnFOX uses GIT!
Regarding the next release, well FOX is taking forever to reach its v1.8 release and hence so is TnFOX. Much work has been ongoing in TnFOX, especially with nedmalloc and its integration into TnFOX. Feel free to work from GIT HEAD to see all the changes!
31st October 2008: v0.88.1 released. This is simply a point release to add Apple Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard support and reenabling C++0x rvalue move constructors for GCC v4.3 and later which had been disabled in v0.88 as they didn't work. No API changes have been made, though several important bugs have been fixed thanks to bug reports from various users.
As so few changes have happened, I won't be releasing binaries for anything beyond Apple Mac OS X.
13th June 2008: TnFOX v0.88 is out almost eleven months to the day from when v0.87 was released. New features this release:
There was no Apple Mac available for testing and so this release does not come with Apple Mac binaries. Ditto goes for FreeBSD this release. Also, there is a bug in recent xorg's which prevents multithreaded GUI programs from working - this hangs TnFOX but ONLY when you run the GUI event loop via TnFXApp (non-multithreaded FXApp based applications are fine).
And once again, sadly no Python bindings - I just haven't had the time to work on them, sorry!
All binaries packages come with:
Optional extra graphic formats, compression & encryption support:- most Linux and BSD installations already come with these, so they are for Windows users mostly. Note firstly that I did not write these libraries, they are merely pointers to other places on the web for your convenience. Therefore I can not offer any assistance with their usage:
