Platform dependency

Until August 2016 the APLTree project was pretty much a Windows-only project. That has changed now.

Show the details

We attempt to make every APLTree project available for all platforms Dyalog is officially supporting except AIX. This is a major project but it was eased by the fact that Dyalog introduced system functions into version 15.0 that make the job much easier.

However, since we also tried to make sure that every APLTree project runs at least with the oldest supported version of Dyalog (14.0 at the time of writing) we had a dilemma here: we need 15.0 for a platform independent strategy.

Therefore it was decided to make a split: what is the current version of any APLTree project is available from http://download.aplwiki.com/Prior15.0. Naturally these versions are no longer actively supported, although we will continue to fix serious bugs for quite a while.

On http://download.aplwiki.com we will provide only versions of the APLTree project that are either truly platform independent or are bound to a particular platform by definition; examples are WinSys and ShowChmHelp.

For more details see APLTreeGoesMultiPlatform.

Note that until the conversion is done you will find not all projects listed here are actually available from http://download.aplwiki.com. However, everything that can be ported should be ported by mid September.

APLTree downloads

  1. If you just want to consume (use) an APLTree member then you have several choices:
    • Note that accessing it via ftp allows you to download older versions as well while the dedicated download page offers just the most current version.

If you want to get access to the test cases as well or you need the full development environment because you want to contribute and create a fork then you need to go to the project's page on GitHub.

Note: we are currently in the process of moving the projects to GitHub but they are not available to the public as of yet.

In order to create a new APLTree project you need some advice. Ask KaiJaeger for help: mailto:kai@aplteam.com

Although the projects are hosted on GitHub we use acre for the development process. For how to use acre TheAPLTreeProjectAndAcre provides details.

Suspended projects

Projects may get suspended for different reasons, for example due to the lack of demand or contributors or both.
