I’ve got a pet peeve with reports where people say they have the “latest” version of fink, or Xcode, or etc.

The problem is that of temporal location.  If a new version comes out between the time message is sent and when I read it, then the poster’s “latest” isn’t going to be my “latest”.    And if more than one version comes out (which can happen) then things get downright confusing.

xcircuit-3.7.37 and xcircuit-testing-3.8.15

Upstream seems to make frequent releases, even in the nominally “stable” 3.7.x branch.

Contains some new functions.

Sorry, Octave-3.4.3 and earlier users.

Currently testing Xcode Command Line Tools

Finkers: a blog about Fink

With the advent of Xcode 4.3, I’m sure that some Fink users would like to install just the command-line tools, and not the rest of Xcode.  Fink isn’t quite set up for that just yet, but I’m currently running a test build of the whole Lion distribution to see:

  1. which packages build fine,
  2. which packages have listed build dependencies on xcode but don’t actually require anything but the CLI tools,
  3. which packages don’t build and need to have a build dependency on xcode included.

In addition, fink currently won’t bootstrap without the full Xcode install, so I’ll look at modifying the bootstrap procedure accordingly.

I’ve released packages for netCDF-4.2. Since upstream has gone away from a monolithic build–building the C, C++, and Fortran libraries separately–I’ve done the same thing.

The packages that correspond to this release are:

  • netcdf-bin-4.2-1 user programs
  • netcdf-c7-4.2-1 C headers and docs
  • netcdf-c7-shlibs-4.2-1 C library
  • netcdf-cxx4-4.2-1 C++ headers and docs
  • netcdf-cxx4-shlibs-4.2-1 C++ library
  • netcdf-fortran5-4.2-1 Fortran headers and docs
  • netcdf-fortran5-shlibs-4.2-1 Fortran library
