Just wanted to say thanks for the hard work, keep it up! :)
Thank you as well, glad you appreciate my work. Nice video tutorial btw. ;)

I added a page on my blog: http://www.mjbshaw.com/p/sfml-nightly-builds.html
If I ever change the download URLs for the binaries, my blog will be immediately updated. It's probably the safest thing to link to (or the Github project's main page).
I've updated the links. :)

Great, thanks a lot for supporting Thor! :)

I have added a link to your builds on my download page.

Updated the SFML builds to the latest commit and added support for MinGW TDM GCC 4.7.1 64bit and MinGW-w64 rubenvb GCC 4.7.2 - 64bit

Are all these MinGW versions really incompatible? It starts to make a really big set of downloads just for one compiler on one OS... I don't know what to do for SFML 2.0.

To be honest, the only thing you can be realistically expected to do is probably support the version included with Code::Blocks, and expect anybody using any other release of Mingw to understand how to build from source...
UnitTest11 - A unit testing library in C++ written to take advantage of C++11.

All code is guilty until proven innocent, unworthy until tested, and pointless without singular and well-defined purpose.

Well it's a shame, that Code::Blocks uses the TDM build and not the official one (okay granted the official one only recentely updated to GCC 4.72), because TDM's default linking behavior for the runtime is static and if you want shared linking, you'll have to use -shared-libgcc -shared-libstdc++ and the compiler might error out when you use -static-libgcc -static-libstdc++, which is basically against all the other GCC based compilers. And not even SFML's build script supports this (I'm using a work around for my builds).

I'd at least support the official MinGW branch and since most of the people are too lazy MinGW TDM.
For the x64 based MinGW compilers, although there's an official source release, there isn't an official binary release, so you'd have to support an automatic build or rubenvb's build, if you'd want to produce a x64 builds.

Are all these MinGW versions really incompatible? It starts to make a really big set of downloads just for one compiler on one OS...
I haven't really tested them, but given that each of them are built completely different, I wouldn't suspect one to work with the other. I've tested MinGW 4.7.2 + MinGW TDM 4.7.1 which don't play nice due to sjlj.

I don't know what to do for SFML 2.0.
Support which every you feel is important enough. Personally I wouldn't mind building SFML for every single compiler, since it's really quite easy to do. Download compiler, unpack, start cmd, add compiler path to PATH with the provided bat file, build SFML (of course this step gets even easier with my scripts ;) ).

Huh, well learn something new every day. Did not know that :)

Maybe support just official? Personally I've been using nuwen lately, and (once cmake stopped being annoying) building SFML for it is pretty easy once I got cmake to shut up, sit down and do what I told it. But to be simple and to have to build yourself are arguably not compatible...

Damnit Code::Blocks... -_-

The most realistic solution is probably to start with a minimal set of packages for the initial release, and make it grow later with the most requested versions of the compiler.

Thanks so much for these. I've spent the last several hours of my night trying to choose a library for a game I want to build, and after giving up on getting Allegro working and nearly giving up on this (I've never used a non standard library before...) I finally figured out a configuration of your build, codeblocks, and mingw that will work.

Updated the SFML builds to the latest commit.
Thor builds are coming soon!


With the loss of my notebook, I also lost the build scripts (but no other important data), so I had to recreate them. The system is now a bit nicer to handle. Then again those are still batch files, which are never really nice - I should really start looking into Python... ;D

I'm glad my builds were of use to you! :)

Thor links are 404.  :(
It's because you are linking to latest.7z instead of previous.7z

Thanks for reporting it. Yeah I did a simple c&p for the forum view and forgot to change latest to previous. At least my website had the correct links.

I really hope I'll get around writing the Thor build scripts, so I could finally upload the new builds. Sorry for the delay btw. got just so much to do with university.

Updated the SFML builds to the latest commit.
Thor builds are still WIP, sorry!


So writing the Thor build scripts with the new system, seems to be a bit more complicated than I thought, but I didn't want to let people wait any longer for the newest SFML version, so I've now update the latest SFML version, but left the previous one untouched, so the Thor and SFML version match each other.
I hope to get things running soon!

I followed the tutorial here http://www.mjbshaw.com/2013/02/building-sfml-2-with-c11-on-os-x.html and it almost worked, except when I launch the Xcode Template "SFML App" I have a build error saying:

ditto: can't get real path for source
couldn't copy /Library/Frameworks/freetype.framework to /Users/vanpet/Library/Developer/Xcode/DerivedData/engine-aflrprlylygpwtcgjaleylrwvizo/Build/Products/Debug/engine.app/Contents/Frameworks/freetype.framework
Command /bin/sh failed with exit code 2

Any idea what is happening?
