Ok, so it’s time to merge the trunk revisions of Rosegarden onto the mingw branch that I’ve created which makes the Rosegarden for Windows build available. This process is done of course in Windows and traditionally I’ve used the excellent QtCreator alongside Tortoise SVN to handle the source control side of things. Aside from that and a little perl to ease the cogs a little it’s all done just like that.
This time though I’m making life a little bit more complicated. I’m using Codename Friendlier to do the editing and to run the builds. I’m using this merge exercise as a test bed for my other software – so see if it’s possible and fun to work in the new environment for this ‘Light’ IDE. I probably could have started this exercise a month ago but instead I fell down a rabbit hole with indenting and text highlighting and to be honest this has made me feel a lot better about using Friendlier. None of the features are finished yet but it’s quite competent at allowing me to edit and build stuff. Or so I will find out in the next few days..
