To clarify, 1.77-maintenance on Github and SVN trunk are, in principle, the same thing. However, they’re kept in sync manually, so at certain times one may be behind the other.

Mac OS X nightlies are now based on Git master (i.e., development version 1.79). however, because of an error in the build script, the current build is based on a version from July. So there’s new stuff, but not all the new stuff. This should be fixed in the next couple of days.

1.79 nightlies currently require a 64-bit Mac and Mac OS X 10.6 or later.

The Mac nightly build is now up-to-date.

One minor issue: it temporarily doesn’t include Debug.oxp. You can work around this by removing the requires.plist file from an existing copy. The development version of Oolite no longer loads native code from Debug.oxp, so there are no major compatibility issues any longer.

Not too important, but can i ask why when I right click 'get info' on the new nightly, it comes up with "Oolite version 1.77.1", and not "Oolite - trunk-1,79.0.140303" ?
Thanks.

The nightly server will have service unavailability periods
as of 26/Mar 16:00 UTC till 26/Mar 23:00 UTC
due to maintenance activities.



EDIT 2014/03/26 23:25 UTC: Maintenance activities completed.


As a result of these activities the nightly service might not deliver
the latest build the 27th of March.

It is expected that as of 28/Mar 07:00am UTC the nightly service will be stabilized.

Mac users may alternatively use the following URL:
http://oolite.org/nightly/mac/index.php



EDIT 2014/03/27 08:05 UTC:
Nightly build service has been fully restored.
Thank you for your patience.

Last night the nightly server power supply has died. :cry:

The power supply has just been replaced by the one I had in my personal tower :mrgreen: and
the web-server service has been restored.

The fact that it still points back to 17-Mar nightly is irrelevant to last night's incident.
Ahruman will be most probably looking into that.

During the next days, starting of today and till Sunday 27/Apr, the nightly server will mostly be unavailable.
The following major operations will be performed:
1. Image backup of server
2. Motherboard downgrade (explained later in this communication)

3. New O/S installation and web-server re-installation.

Following a stability period of two weeks the server will be brought down again to get an image backup of the new installation.

During terrastorage server unavailability, Mac users may use the following link for the nightly:
http://oolite.org/nightly/mac/index.php


Please, note that the virtual machines used to build Oolite nightly will not be touched... at least not at this stage. :P
However, the plan for the near future is to re-build the virtual machines with modern O/S and development tools.

To be honest with the community, the motherboard downgrade is due to the fact that I will use the server's motherboard for my E:D rig. :oops:
My PC motherboard has a very old PCI Express and also imposes many limitations when it comes to max memory supported.
I don't think that this change will have any impact to user-experience for the nightly service. :wink:

I will be posting some updates on the progress here.

EDIT 2014/04/28 02:11am:
O/S and server services have been successfully installed.
All virtual machines (used for the nightly builds) have been successfully tested.
Oolite Nightly service configuration is in progress.



EDIT 2014/04/29 17:45:
Oolite Nightly service is live... well... with a change....
I am sorry but, DYN is stopping the free dynamic dns service,
and I had to change my dynamic dns provider from DYN to NO-IP.

This means that terrastorage nightly service URLs are now:
Mac OS X: http://terrastorage.no-ip.info/oolite/status_mac.html
Windows x64: http://terrastorage.no-ip.info/oolite/status_win64.html
Windows x86: http://terrastorage.no-ip.info/oolite/status_win32.html
Linux x86_64/AMD64: http://terrastorage.no-ip.info/oolite/status_AMD64.html
Linux x86: http://terrastorage.no-ip.info/oolite/status.html

A relevant announcement will be posted in the initial post of this thread for each O/S.

This is just a heads up for an upcoming nightly server outage due to nightly server ISP change.

The expected change is to happen in a couple of weeks and, in the worst case, we will loose not more than two nightly builds.
The change will not impact the server name, however, I will still have to setup the new ISP network device.

If the ISP change takes longer, we will risk to have a much bigger outage (a couple of weeks :( ) since I will be away.
To help with bug fixing delivery planning, I will keep posting weekly updates here.

EDIT:
Mac nightly builds may still be available at http://oolite.org/nightly/mac/index.php as an alternative.

EDIT:
Following to a new offer from my current ISP, the change is postponed for a year; planned downtime cancelled.

Is there a reason why the mac nightly builds are not the same as all the others?

Yes, there is. At the moment there does not seem to be any active Mac maintainers around and the market changes that were recently pushed to master require some additional source files to be included in the project for compiling. Since nobody has been able to do this for the Mac, the result is that the new code fails to compile on that platform and unfortunately will continue to fail until someone adds those new files in.

Speaking of which, would there be any volunteers for keeping the Mac port up to date?

I might be able to contribute from time to time but can't really commit to a regular schedule. As long as slightly older tools are OK (I have Mac OS X 10.8.5 and no intention of upgrading beyond it): XCode 4.6.2 or 5.1.1.

Just wanted to let you know that Jens has been back during the weekend and has fixed up all the build issues of the Mac nightly, which is now once again synchronized with the other two ports.
