sourceforge last version show 98.0

Post by MelKor » 29 Jul 2015, 06:03

sourceforge show last version as 98.0 (running 100.0 in server), I had problems to update to version 100.0 in official slackware repository for that (few emails), if it is a mistake, please fix it.

PD: I'm not sure is this is the right place to ask this.

Do we want to keep Sourceforge? GitHub releases works well, and Sourceforge downloads fail for most users with privacy or ad blocking extensions turned on

Then please, change the official link once for all, otherwise the problems with updates will be a permanent situation, plus, is not good for new people download a game, compile it (not mentioning springlobby), to realize that the source code is outdated.

On windows machines sourceforge sometimes supplants installers with their own malware infested setup tools.

sth. is weird/broken at sourceforge. "default" version is set to 100.0 but its not shown. no clue how to fix / change.

more detail:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/springr ... ing-100.0/

-> click info for spring_100.0.exe:

Default Download For: windows

but still it shows 98.0 as latest version :-|

still when you follow the official download link you download the correct version: https://springrts.com/wiki/Download

This tools are used to update packages, and how it show another version in official site, I had problems convincing the person responsible for accept updates in slackware.

And is the only slackware package (as I know) with that problem, and that suggest problems in the link format, or a no-standar link.

If you are thinking to use git for updates, sourceforge give us the perfect excuse to do it.

https://springrts.com/wiki/Download

-> {Mirror}
-> https://springrts.com/dl/buildbot/defau ... _100.0.exe


or, if you want to just check for the latest version available, download https://springrts.com/dl/buildbot/default/master/LATEST

but this file is updated when the build is created, not when the version is set as default version on the lobby server. its maybe good to create a mail when this file is changed: "please check news page on springrts.com".
also you could use the rss feed for automaticly getting news: feed.php?mode=news

not sure what applies best, its up to you.

for git updates use https://github.com/spring/spring please. sourceforges git repository is rarely updated, its just a backup mirror which is manually updated when i don't forget it.

seems that problem is a sourceforge bug: http://sourceforge.net/p/forge/site-support/10961/ (there are several other tickets related to file uploading / releasing)
