daily builds for every platform.
It's "almost" back up anyway. Some of you might have jad problems with the site over the last week or two. I had to completely re-write the site about a week ago due to some major database issues. And at the same time I split the site to deal with each Arch having its own revision # [even though they pretty much always have the same # anyway. but not always] And splitting the XBMC4Xbox off into its own section.
I also re-wrote my entire build process so now it is 100% automated [except my testing and putting my daily babble on the site] Sounds easy lol. But I had to make this work on all of my build machines as well.
I have 2 linux machines now both quad cores one for x86 the other for x64 builds
1 have 1 OSX machine dual core for well, the OSX builds
And I have this machine [this is just the machines I use to build XBMC
] which does the Win32 DX [no installer] and DX Installer as well as the Xbox branches.
It took me about 3 days to rewrite the build process and about double that to debug it lol. mostly because I had to learn a lot of crap like doing SQL connections from dos and dos errorlevels and stuff. wow. Ended up being 1440 lines of code just to do the night builds. Sheesh. But now I just click one icon wait about 1/2 an hour and a box pops up asking me for my nightly banter and then hit done and poof it's on the site for people to download and enjoy.
Last week it took me about an hour of my time every night [for the last 2 1/2 years] to do the builds have them uploaded to the host then add them to the site. Now it takes me about a minute of my time to do the same thing so I am very happy spending the 100+ hours I spent writing the new build code. Since it now saves me about 59 minutes a day of my time it will only take about 101 days to pay for itself
3.1 months is not a horrible ROI
I really don't know why I went into all that, I just wanted to say that my site [www.sshcs.com/xbmc or better yet http://www.xbmcsvn.com
] was having problems, I fixed the underlying issues but now have to re-write the site to deal with all the changes, so whilst the site is up and offering daily builds still, its borked in may ways so if you have an issue, please PLEASE click the link at the top of the page named "Report Error" and let me know so I can fix that issue first.
I hope everyone enjoys my builds [even the windows ones
] and I'll keep doing them as long as people use em
And d'Wooluf for more than a year and a half now Arnova has been the ONLY person doing any updates to the Xbox branch. there has been NO developement by the "team xbmc" on Xbox since then.
Now that we moved the xbox branch away from the main branch there has actually been real progress being made. Arno added Exo and the Xbox branch is alice again
