Re: [tim-janik/beast] Does not run on Ubuntu 14.04 (#90)

Hi @tim-janik thanks for your feedback. I agree that it can be cumbersome to backport applications after the fact, so I am trying to establish a mindset that applications should be developed against the oldest still-supported distributions right from the outset.

In some cases this may not be desirable or feasible; for this cases there is the option to bundle everything with the application, so that it will run on older systems than the one it was built on, too. We generally don't recommend this since it will make the AppImages larger than necessary and may have other downsides, but it is a possibility. Inkscape is using this method, for example. They are building on a very recent distribution yet their AppImage runs on distributions as old as 2012.


Please let me know if you are interested in trying this out, since our tools are currently not fully supporting this, so some manual steps are needed to make this work.
