eTcl 1.0-rc25 - Fixing bugs and Tcllib
2007-12-31 - 13:54
After one week of precious feedbacks and bug reports on eTcl 1.0-rc24, we are pleased to offer eTcl 1.0-rc25 binaries for download. This release focuses on fixing bugs and small issues introduced when switching from Tcl/Tk 8.4.x core to new 8.5.0 version (e.g. wrong initialisation of system encoding, one pixel offset when scaling image with Pixane, missing directory in default auto_path, ...). This release also comes comes with tcllib 1.10 pre-installed on all architectures, as an (optional) eTcl kit. Upgrade is recommended, and feedback appreciated. Enjoy!

eTcl 1.0-rc24 - Tcl/Tk 8.5.0 for everyone
2007-12-24 - 22:11
Soon after Tcl/Tk 8.5 has been released by Tcl core team as the result of several years of hard and great work, we are pround to announce eTcl 1.0-rc24 is now based on 8.5.0 core on all architectures, and heritates its numerous goodies, including significant speedup of new bytecode engine, integrated arbitrary-precision arithmetic, new skinnable widgets, or anti-aliased text support on all platforms. Tcl API for Odyce has been stabilized and allows dynamic compilation of most Tcl/Tk extensions (e.g. incrTcl, Xotcl, ...) on all x86 and ARM architectures in just a few hundreds milliseconds, making it a viable alternative to shared libraries for deployment. Pixane extension exposes more transformations (e.g. arbitrary image rotations) at Tcl level, and its memory footprint has been reduced. You can download binary for your architecture for free, and enjoy!
eTcl 1.0-rc23 - Tcl/Tk 8.4.16 and code stabilization
2007-09-28 - 20:41
We are pround to announce eTcl 1.0-rc23 is available for download. This release relies on latest Tcl/Tk 8.4.16 core, and up to date versions of several packages (e.g. sqlite 3.4.2, libpng 1.2.19, tile and tkhtml3 CVS snapshots, ...). Support for XFT/Anti-Aliased font engine has been added, and can be enabled or disabled at runtime. Native implementations of most usual digest/hash methods (md5,sha1,crc16,crc32,...) have been introduced for performance. A new package called Odyce provides an experimental API for dynamic compilation from C code, in a way similar to critcl but without requiring an external compiler and linker to be installed on target machine. Binaries are provided for Mac OS X, Win32, Windows Mobile and Linux x86, arm (soft-float and hard-float) , mipsel and powerpc.
Invalid CAB files for eTcl 1.0-rc22
2007-08-11 - 10:27
Due to a synchronization problem, some CAB files part of eTcl 1.0-rc22 early distribution were generated with an invalid VersionMax value, and couldn't be installed on Windows Mobile 6 devices, and some Windows Mobile 5 smartphones. Those archives have been updated to fix this incompatibility. Note that cabinet content itself (especially eTcl executable) is stricly similar. Thanks to Michel Salvagniac and Satoshi Imai for reporting this quickly.

Several packages has been upgraded (sqlite 3.4.1, libpng 1.2.18, tkhtml, ...). Binaries are provided for Mac OS X, Win32, Windows Mobile and Linux (x86, arm, mipsel and powerpc).
