Subversion and TXC 2.0

Postby Tino Weinkauf » Sat Aug 09, 2008 6:30 pm

Last week we changed our source code revision control system from CVS to Subversion. The project is still located at sourceforge.net and the source code can be checked out using [1]. The old CVS repository is still available, but not visible anymore on our project page at sourceforge.net.

Besides switching to Subversion we also brought a new code base into the repository which will be the base of our development towards version 2.0. This new code can be found on the trunk, but is not completely stable at the moment. We still have a number of issues here that we are working on. However, note that we completely changed the build system. We switched from VC++ 6.0 to VC++ 9.0 (Visual Studio 2008). Quite a step. Unfortunately, the express edition of Visual Studio does not suffice to compile the code since it does not support MFC. Any other edition should work.

This enormous step forward has been made possible by a single very skilled developer with lots of guts: Sergiu Dotenco. Thank you so much Sergiu!

The previous development line with VC++ 6.0 will come to an end. A good one. We will make a stable 1.0 version this year. It will be built upon 1 Beta 7.50. Since we did not yet recieve much reports about problems with this release, I think that the stable release will not be too far away. The version 1.0 line can also be found on a branch in the repository [2].

[1] TeXnicCenter can be checked out from the Subversion repository using
svn checkout https://texniccenter.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/texniccenter/trunk TeXnicCenter
This creates a working copy of the main development line in the subdirectory 'TeXnicCenter'.

[2] TeXnicCenter 1.0 development line can be checked out from the Subversion repository using
svn checkout https://texniccenter.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/texniccenter/branches/V1 TeXnicCenter1

Hi

Thanks for the info! I managed to checkout from the svn repo and compile it. TXC 2 rocks! I really love it!

However, the Menu: View> Word Wrap is disabled, and I am not able to alter the wrapping from Options as well. Is there something I am missing? Could you please help me out?

Regards
Karthik
p.s. It would be really nice if you could post the setup on the website... I was desperate to try out TXC 2, and had to do all the svn-vc stuff for it...

TXC 2.0 is still being developed. Many things might not be working as expected, so please be patient.

After downloading the latest TXC2 revision (#977) from the trunk, I tried to build the solution TeXnicCenter.sln as described in the HowToBuild.txt but it doesn't work. There are several Compiler Errors C2664 ('cannot convert parameter number from 'type1' to 'type2''). Can someone give me a hint what I did wrong?

To compile TXC 2.0 use one of the Unicode configurations, i.e. Unicode Release, Unicode Debug.

I'm trying to build TeXnicCenter 2.0, but I get this error,
  1. Error 119 fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'afxcontrolbars.h': No such file or directory c:\users\...\texniccenter\stdafx.h 70 TeXnicCenter
. What is wrong?

You have to install the Visual C++ 2008 Feature Pack.

Ok, I've installed it, but I still get some errors. Is there anything else I need to install? I have Visio 2008 and Visual C++ 2008 Feature Pack installed.

Where am I supposed to see the executable? "...\Output\Product\Release"?

Please read the HowToBuild.txt and make sure your setup meets the requirements mentioned in that file.

It depends on the build configuration you have chosen. There are four possible configurations: Debug, Release, Unicode Debug, Unicode Release. The first two are no longer supported; see my previous post.
