it means merged into the development branches for those versions. They are not released yet in their final form.
If you want, you can close the code from gitea and build your own versions. If you are on a debian-like distros, there are PSB and PTB repositories from Slavek where packages are updated on the go.
excuse me, for the clarity of thinking and understanding of the situation: o)
I am a simple user, not an IT professional. I use slackware. There are no latest TDE packages for Slackware. I collect TDE myself.
It used to be simple: you need version TDE-3.5.12, downloaded the archive 3.5.12-complete.tar from the official site, collect the packages!
Now: we’ve done everything that is necessary and convenient for developers, but, unfortunately, it’s almost impossible or very difficult for an ordinary person to figure it out.
explain to me on a simple, on fingers ?! at the moment I am collecting TDE-14.0.6, I downloaded the sources according to the recipe
how to be now (in relation to this KDE-bug)? manually patch tdelibs? (I do it myself now) or can I download the patched sources? TDE14.0.6?
I am aware that there is an archive for TDE-14.0.6:
to get the latest code it is actually much simpler than you may think. TGW hosts all the source code of TDE, both the development branches and the released versions. Using git, you can clone (== copy to your computer) the required version and then build from there. This webpage will give you an introduction to using TGW and how to get the latest code. After that you can build the required package on your computer.
(please note it is currently down at the time of writing, I guess a temporary access problem with the main server).
Regarding this issue, the fix has been merged into the master branch, so by cloning it you will have the fix in the source code. If you use R14.0.x, you need to clone the r14.0.x branch instead of the master branch.
TGW has really simplified the workflow and code sharing, once you get used to it you will find much better than downloading tarballs 😄
here is a clear principle: Tarballs for individual versions are simply final and will not be changed. Therefore, commits to the GIT repository will never integrate into existing tarballs.
You therefore have three options:
It seems the main web site and wiki is back online now, so the link above is active. See section 3.1 on how to get the latest code. Just remember to switch from “master” to “r14.0.x” branch if you want to use the R14.0.x stable branch. Instead if you are happy with R14.1.x development branch, you can stay on “master”.
Deleting a branch is permanent. It CANNOT be undone. Continue?
