Nightlies

Nightlies are now posted in the downloads section.  These should only be used for development purposes and not for a production site as they are not supported 100%.

Re: Nightlies

A nightly takes the current state of the svn and downloads it and creates a tar.gz of it and makes it the current download for the nightly on the svn page. I am doing two nightlies:
1st)  I am making a nightly of the 0.9 branch.  This way any updates that are added to the svn are availiable at 12:00am EST (-5:00) everyday. Even though we may not support that build untill it makes it to the 0.9 stable release.

2nd) I am making a nightly of the trunk.  That is the current development of eoCMS.  It may not work 100% and should only be used for development purposes as it is not an official release.

Currently it creates a tar.gz of the file.  If I see that these are being used I may also create zip files as well as tar.gz files.

If you are running windows I suggest using 7-zip to extract the tar.gz files (I know there are others) because I have tested that program on 32 and 64 bit windows 7, vista, and xp and I know it works.

These nightlies are purely for convenience and may not always be correct as an automated script I wrote is doing the work.  The best way to get the source is to directly checkout the svn.

Re: Nightlies

well with mac you can always just use the command line to un tar.gz it
"tar xvfz <filename>"

But either way, you put them in any folder you want.  They are mostly for development therefore you should not use them on a production server but only for development purposes.  You can use the files just like a normal build of eoCMS. 

Again, I reiterate these files should ONLY be used for DEVELOPMENT purposes.
