Title: Latest Public Preview Release: Build #7236 (March 11th 2021)
Post by: dro on December 31, 2018, 04:51:01 PM
It happened at last, after almost 3 years of work, the first public preview build of WACUP has been released as can be downloaded from https://getwacup.com/preview/ (https://getwacup.com/preview/)



If you are an existing beta tester then it's recommended to keep using the beta builds unless you prefer to move to a slower cadence of build updates. As of this initial release the only difference between beta & preview is to do with the update process where beta builds update to beta builds & preview builds update to preview &/or final builds depending on what is provided at the time.

The preview builds will aim to be updated roughly once a month or two (subject to the nature of any issues & IRL which sadly happened between builds #3276 & #4130) whilst beta builds will hopefully still be being updated every 1-2 weeks depending on testing needs & how development is going (some things take longer to sort out which can cause longer delays between builds).



If you are interested in getting more involved and using newer builds than are provided then you may consider becoming a beta tester & just need to drop me ("dro") a PM (personal message) on this forum to be considered.

The public preview build has now been updated to build #4130 with the build specific changelog at https://getwacup.com/preview/preview_1_0_5_4130.html (https://getwacup.com/preview/preview_1_0_5_4130.html) which includes all of the changes from the beta builds since build #3276 was released (~240 lines of changes but so much more work to get to this point after IRL issues & an un-wanted almost 7 month delay in public preview builds). The first post has also been updated to link to the prior changelog for those interested & who've come in to see things at this preview build :)

Small update after the new preview release last week (thanks to those who commented, etc in relation to it), https://getwacup.com/preview/ now has a specific portable installer for those needing it (e.g. WINE installs / limited user access setups).

For most of you the standard installer & the options it already provide is what's needed but this additional installer hopefully increases the means for those wanting to install WACUP to now able to do so when access is limited or you just want to keep things a bit simpler :)
