Providing Io binaries for multiple platforms

The goal of this project is to provide simple installers for Io binaries. These binaries should be relatively up to date for the major platforms. Please read the important information provided in the "About" section below.

Disclaimer

It's kind of important

The packages available below come with absolutely no warranties and no guarantee that they will work. They shouldn't cause any harm, but you use them at your own risk.

Bug reports

Help me squash 'em!

Any bug reports are welcome! Please send any reports to the email address listed above. If you would be so kind as to send along the results of running this script as well, that would be much appreciated. The script simply dumps some info about your Io installation that will be generally helpful when diagnosing any problems you might run into. Full description of this script is here: io-info on github.

Follow the README

That's all there is to it

The packages are distributed as .zip files, which contain the installer, a copy of the license, and a README.txt file. Read the readme, and it'll all work out, so long as you can follow simple directions.

Release Schedule

Roughly every 4 months

It is my intent to re-build these packages from fresh, new source roughly every 4 months for the major platforms (Windows, Linux. Mac OS X), making new releases available in March, July, and November. This schedule is subject to change, however, if a security flaw is discovered or if occasion strikes that makes rebuilding worthwhile, such as a major new language feature.

The release schedule for other platforms is much looser. I will update those when inspiration strikes, but often they will be behind the other binaries. Oftentimes, people using those platforms compile from source anyway, so this shouldn't pose much of a problem.

NOTICE: The builds for March and July 2013 have been skipped, due to lack of changes to the mainline Io repository.

Io for Cygwin

Github repo - click here

A git repo of Io sources modified to compile under Cygwin. Changes are not cross platform compatible, so there probably won't be a pull request upstream. Not always up to date, and updated sporadically. Instructions at the top of the README.md file.

Failed Builds
