Hi,

I would like to install version 3.7 on a linux (ubuntu) machine and was
wondering if there is already an expected release date for the readily compiled
(and easy-to-install) binary file?
If this release is imminent, I would be able to avoid having to compile it on my
own which unfortunately is far outside my capabilities.

If anyone knows about the release date, I'd really appreciate to hear about it.

Many thanks,

Patrick

Due to the various linux/unix architecture, I wouldn't expect a binary
install from the pov-team (but any linux distribution could do it).

For installing and compiling on Ubuntu, you need a few packages and it
should fly.

Have a look at >

(It's a bit old, referencing 3.7RC4 instead of current 3.7RC7, on Ubuntu
11.10 instead of 12.04 or 13.04, but that should put you on track)

The best estimate I have from old echo: when it's ready.

Here is how I installed RC7 on Kubuntu 12.04 (Precise)

http://wiki.waggy.org/dokuwiki/povray/rc5-install-kubuntu?s%5B%5D=povray

I installed build-essential instead of g++. Also, I avoided installing all of
boost by choosing instead libboost-thread-dev. There may be a slight difference
in other package names.

I think Arch Linux packages a 3.7 binary. Can be a pita distro, though.
