OK guys, I've been sitting on this for quite some time, mostly not
looking forward to remembering where I left off...
But here the culmination of 3 years of:
o fiddling - probably fixed or created all sorts of bugs
o migrating to av11n
o migrating to play nice in the new world of windows security
o updating Windows InstallMgr to:
o have the ability to autodiscover repositories
o install modules in a location which plays nice with
other SWORD frontends on Windows
o and still preserve the ability to create a
self-contained movable installation-- there are
options in the InstallManager menus to migrate back
and forth between the two setups.
You must have a working BibleCS installation already on your system to
try this beta.
**** YOU MUST DELETE YOUR locales.d/ folder within your working
installation (or rename it if you might return to the 1.5.11 release).
The SWORD 1.5.x and 1.6.x engine locale formats are NOT COMPATIBLE.
**** PLEASE FOLLOW THE ABOVE INSTRUCTIONS OR YOU WILL BE MOCKED IF YOU
REPORT CRASH BUGS AND WE DISCOVER YOU HAVE OLD LOCALES PRESENT!!! :)
Download and unzip these files ON TOP of your existing installation
To try out av11n, you'll need to manually add the a11n repository to
name: CrossWire av11n Repo
Save, go to the tab, hit [Refresh from Remote Repository], and install
I'm calling this a release candidate, but really, I'm just looking for
feedback from anyone whose interested/using BibleCS. We need to release
an av11n version, and we now have multiple frontend choices on Windows
so we need to play nice with others. These 2 factors are the major
driving force behind this release candidate.
If we can get some feedback that this release is at least as stable as
the current 1.5.11 release, I'd love to release this soon.
