we're currently testing our build processes as we're spinning up for the
beta phase of v3.8.0.
If you're feeling particularly bold and daring, feel free to test-drive
this INSTALLER for us:
The software therein will identify as "v3.8.0-beta.666", but it got that
label only for technical reasons, and is really more like a pre-beta,
and as a matter of fact, we don't care much how that version fares per
se: What we're really interested in is the installer.
Some things you might want to test:
- whether the software installs and runs fine on a "virgin" system that
never had any other version of POV-Ray installed;
- whether the software installs and runs fine on a system that already
has one or more other versions of POV-Ray installed, without interfering
with any of them;
- whether the software uninstalls cleanly.
Also, please keep your eyes peeled for any unexpected behavior that
might be related to the installation process.
If you're playing guinea pig on this one, please let us know a bit about
the system you're testing this on, most notably OS version, what other
versions of POV-Ray are installed, and of course your results. Even if
everything works flawlessly, we'd like to hear about it.
Note that the binaries in this installer package are not XP-compatible.
If you still use XP and are keen on seeing continued support for that
platform, please let us know, and we'll try to get back to you with an
XP-enabled version. It's extra effort for us though, so we won't be
doing it unless you let us know that there's still some demand for it.
Have Fun Testing!
