Re: Meld 3.13.3

For new folks, the old fashioned way I mentioned is this:

Also, comparing directories seems to always fail on Windows in this version (though it works on 3.12.3).  Here is the message it printed (using the 3.13.3 tarball and pyObject 3.14.0 aio):
Assertion failed!

Program: C:\Python27\python.exe
File: cairo-surface.c, Line 542

_expression_: surface->is_clear

This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.
Please contact the application's support team for more information.

Lemme know if I can do anything to provide more info.  I lack the GTK knowledge to offer any useful suggestions for how to resolve, sorry.

Doh!  Thanks for the explanation.  I don't know why I thought this was a stable release.

Yea, automating these types of things is tricky (I had the same problem with the Meld installer I maintained).  IMO, Meld stable releases are frequent enough that we're probably OK without MSIs for unstable builds.  If Windows users really want to get the unstable release, they can do it the old fashioned way (installing Python and extracting the tarball).

Ah, I assume you're referring to the Windows MSI link?

So... 3.13.3 is a development release (because Meld does odd/even
stable/unstable numbering). I haven't been providing Windows MSIs for
unstable releases, simply because it takes me at least as long to do
the MSI release as the whole of the rest of the release process
combined. I did one for 3.13.3 because someone asked for it, and
because I'm hoping to release 3.14 soon.

If there's interest in unstable Windows releases, I could look at
trying to automate the Windows releases a little more, but I haven't
found the time so far.

But anyway, there's no link to the MSI simply because it's still
unstable, so the recommended Windows release for download is still the
latest 3.12.
