Topic: AppImages


for Linux we offer AppImages of version 0.5, 0.6 and the development version 0.7 that should run on any reasonable recent distributions.

AppImage is a format for distributing portable software on Linux without needing superuser permissions to install the application.
It tries also to allow Linux distribution-agnostic binary software deployment for application developers, also called Upstream packaging.

Using appimages it is easy to have several versions installed at the same time, i.e.: create work using the current version, 
use the old version to edit old work without losing compatibility for other users still on the old version, and try out the development version.

Just download the version you want.
make it executable .

$ chmod a+x QElectroTech_0.*.AppImage

and launch AppImage

$ ./QElectroTech_0.7-r5444-x86_64.AppImage

Re: AppImages

nomicons/w00t nice!

I can now have 2 versions installed on my productivity computer.

I have tried QET v0.7 as AppImage and it works fine. It's very easy to use, many thanks Laurent!
This way, I have noticed that QET starts very very fast. Faster as the installed version.
