I have a version of MozillaBuild ready for widespread testing, packaged as an installer. I’m calling this RC1 because I don’t know of any bugs and unless we find some it is fine to put into production. It works with MSVC6, 7, 8, and MSVC 8 Express with an SDK. It builds the trunk, 1.8, and 1.8.0 branches.
The installer was built using the patch in bug 366823, which hasn’t been reviewed or landed yet.
Please download and test this package (and start using it as your Windows development environment). If you have issues, please file bugs in Core->Build Config.
Changes From the Previous Release
- Reset CYGWIN and PATH environment variables so as not to pick up any VC paths from the environment.
- Support MSVC8 Express Edition.
- Use the atlthunk_compat code to support the ATL headers provided with the platform SDK.
- Set CVS_RSH=ssh automatically.
- Add an installer.
