Topic: Snap packages

Dear QET users ,

we are pleased to announce that after many efforts and thanks a lot  to the help and efforts of Max, you will have QET snap packages weekly autobuilded on

We had to trick and synchronize whole sections of SVN towards Github and learn to use Travis for synced SVN to Github.

The Snap package of QET is complete and contain also Raul qet_tb_generator and Ronny DXF converter. … b/branches

I let Max add more technical informations that can appeal to advanced QET users.

We have also added the Fernando Documentation on Github, it will be easier for external contributors to participate in its improvement and its translation.

I moved it to

Re: Snap packages

The snaps are automatically built from master, which is synced from svn trunk daily.

Snaps have multiple channels that represent the risk level of an installation:

We publish daily builds (only if trunk has changed, of course) to the edge channel, so only install that channel if you don't mind frequent updates.

Every few revisions, a select revision will be promoted to the candidate or beta channel. Follow those channels for less frequent updates and thus slightly older revisions.

On release of 0.7, this will be promoted to the stable channel. Installing that channel will be the most conservative option.

Re: Snap packages

Thanks Max for additional informations.
We thinking push the release candidate 2 on stable channel.

Snap architecture builds : … git-mirror

qelectrotech.qet-tb-generator etc. is enough.
