Description

I have finally reworked the Mac installer so that it is distributed as a .dmg file and installed in a manner typical for Mac. I need to do something similar for Windows and Linux.

Further, for all operating systems, it is necessary to automate the updating of version numbers for splash screens and documentation, so that one does not need to produce a different image using Photoshop for every release. Also, this will minimize the errors that inevitably arise from having to do the same update in multiple areas.

History

#1 Updated by David Welker over 8 years ago

Work on the installers is done, with the following results:

The Mac installer is a .dmg file.
The Windows installer uses IzPack
The Linux distribution is a tar.gz file.

I have finally worked out all the kinds, and making a new installer is now a matter of one or two commands.
