Moved form Subversion to Git

Mon, 13 Apr 2009 08:11:01 -0000

The viking's history is now hosted on the Git service provided by SourceForge:

Note that this repo is not *directly* compatible with any other Git repo maintained with git-svn. I'm really sorry for that, but any contributor using Git to work on dedicated branches will have some work to rebase its work on this new repo. Feel free to share, on this list, your tips for such work.
The reason of this rewriten history is the wish to expose *real* authors of many commits. In french, I would say "Rendre à César ce qui est à César".

Windows binaries for Viking 0.9.7

Mon, 20 Oct 2008 04:25:05 -0000

Windows binaries are now available on sourceforge:

As usual, they come in two flavours:
- minimal : without the GTK runtime, without an installer
- full : with the GTK runtime 2.12.8 included, with a NSIS installer

They include all the improvements and bug fixes from the generic 0.9.7
release but also a specific Windows bug is corrected that prevented to
download DEM files from the NASA ftp.

Happy (B/H/V)iking!
