Looking at the last news entry on the NightlyBuilds website, it seems like it has nearly been two years since I last update the Nightly Builds.

Nightly Builds

One of the reasons I didn’t bother as much to keep them updated was, because we at SFML now have setup a Continues Integration system which allows anyone to download the latest builds for various compilers. Additionally my system still isn’t very automated, so I always have to spend quite a bit of time to get everything ready, especially having to update all the compilers. But I’ve made things a bit easier by rewriting my build scripts, so an update to a new compiler version is a lot easier.

I’ve removed all the older compiler versions (VS 2010, 2012, 2014, 2015 RC, MinGW < 6) and now have just four compilers listed:

  • MinGW Builds Posix Dwarf 710r0 32-bit
  • MinGW Builds Posix SEH 710r0 64-bit
  • Visual Studio 2017 32-bit
  • Visual Studio 2017 64-bit

Currently I haven’t rewritten the build script for CSFML, so I’m only supporting the following libraries at the moment:

  • SFML
  • Thor
  • SFGUI

Still not sure where I want to really go with this project, but for now I’m going to use to provide library versions with the runtime lib statically linked, since we aren’t providing those in the SFML downloads on the official website.

And I hope it’s of use to some people out there!
