Continuous AppImage builds now available Print
Thursday, 30 May 2019 12:43

The Travis CI system now creates AppImages for every commit to the fre:ac source repository. This means that you can now try the latest changes right after they land in the repository without having to build fre:ac yourself, for example to verify fixes or test new feature additions.

AppImages are distribution independent Linux packages that bundle most dependencies and should work on any modern distribution. To start an AppImage, just make it executable after download and run it:

chmod a+x freac-continuous-linux-x86_64.AppImage
./freac-continuous-linux-x86_64.AppImage

Packages are provided for the x86, x86-64, ARM and ARM64 system architectures making it the first time that fre:ac binaries for ARM/ARM64 systems are made available outside of the Snap store.

Get your AppImage at the downloads page or from GitHub.
