Thanks for the new release!

However, I see most of the files in the source archive have executable bits set again -- this was the case in the past (pre-2.00.6) too and is mildly annoying for distro packagers.

Could those be, once again, removed in the future release, pretty please? Wink

Well most distribution systems will put the executable in a bin directory somewhere off of the /usr branch in the file system tree; what you can do is to download and compile the latest tarball (either the "stable" or the "beta" one) and put it in somewhere in your /home/<name> (you are NOT running as root are you Wink ). Open a terminal window if using a GUI, and move to that directory, untar the file (with "tar -xvzf <tarball>.gz") in that directory, cd to the ./tt/src directory that is created; configure it "./configure" and if that does not report any problems, make the executable (tt++) with the "make" command. You can then run this later version by giving the explicit path to it, e.g. as directed here it will be "~/tt/src/tt++" or you could install it and possible REPLACE the existing one with "make install". You can judge your success in this by checking the version number displayed in the greeting screen that comes up when you start TinTin++.

This untar/configure/make/make install is a fairly standard route to building software from source tarballs - failures usually occur during the configure stage because something is missing or not new enough so watch the output from this stage carefully - this is where you might find that you are missing a complier (usually some flavour of gcc) or a library (pcre and zlib are the likely cases for TinTin++) and it is possible for some of the configure checks to come back with a "no" or "missing" or other such negative responses and still be able to build what you want - if you do have a problem though the output from this command can usually help others to tell you what is wrong! Big Smile "./configure" can usually take extra arguments to modify what is built or what directories are used for various things - running "./configure --help" will always give information on this without setting anything up and is normally a good thing to run before running it without the "--help". TinTin++ is a fairly straightforward project in that no such arguments are normally needed and no special ones for TinTin++ are required or indeed present in the current versions.
