Irrlicht Nightly Builds 2.0

Postby init512 » Sun Jul 19, 2009 10:56 pm

I started this project about six months ago, but didn't have the resources to continue hosting it until this month (it requires loads of computer time and disk space). Without further ado, here is the latest incarnation of the Irrlicht nightly build web application: http://irrlicht.convextech.ca/ Why? Because Irrlicht is awesome.

I remember someone asking about Visual Studio and amd64 builds in the previous thread about the nightly builder, so I implemented both on a Windows XP virtual machine running Visual Studio 2008 Express. In addition, wildrj and Cloudef have been kind enough to mirror the builds on their very fast connections, so expect great download speeds :).

Overall, the system builds debug and release DLLs for MinGW 32bits, VS2008 32 and 64 bits, and static libraries for Linux (gcc).

I haven't really tested the Visual Studio builds; if anyone has problems with them, I will reconfigure the build software as soon as possible.

This is great. Lets sticky this somewhere or put a link on the main website (If that's ok with you).

@BlindSide: Sounds great to me. Thank you!

I agree, this needs to be a sticky

Wow, I didn't expect anywhere near this warm of a reception for the nightly builder. Feature requests will be honoured if I have the chance to develop them.

@bitplane: I noticed you wrote on bitplane.net about the nightly builder. Thank you, good sir!

Site is back up.

The latest Linux kernel was locking up 15 minutes after boot on my server hardware. I have resolved the issue, and the site is now back up.

Sorry for the downtime!

And I wish to thank you for such awesome site, you saved me and rest of Irrlicht community much time ^^

Sorry if this seems like just a postCount++, but I'd just like to say how much I appreciate this tool. I use it all the time to get the latest Irrlicht builds with ease. I really hope it stays up for quite some time to come. :D

Thanks again. There isn't very much traffic through the site, but I will keep it running as long as I have access to the equipment and mirrors. Any suggestions which would get more people using this site would be appreciated as well :) More use allows me to better justify the CPU time consumed by the compilers and the bandwidth consumed by mirror uploads.
