Paraphrasing the AYBABTU meme, this time I’m willing to announce that we -finally- managed to organize most of our L2J releases for the historical record of our project. Both our nightly builds directory and our SourceForge.net project entry contain our source code and binary releases including Chronicles 3, 4 and 5, Interlude, Castle Thrones 1, 1.5 (Hellbound), and Gracia parts 1, 2 and 3. This way we’ll hopefully satisfy many requests from people that for one reason or another requested old L2J builds and moreover, old releases of our source code from time to time. Until today we told them they could just checkout our SVN repositories at the revision number they needed, but this wasn’t practical enough for anyone so we tried to make it better.
A very little few of you may wonder what about even older versions of L2J? Well, by the C2-C3 era L2J were hosted using a free service (OpenSVN). Before that there were a CVS, but I’m too young in the project to provide further details about it. In the beginning OpenSVN services were good enough but our increasing traffic and bandwidth usage forced us to setup our own server (which costs us money, tnx for your donations btw ). For some reason beyond my memories, our source code were dumped from the old svn to the new one but changeset/revision numbering were set back to zero on purpose. If you’re really really interested in the code and its authors whose names should not be forgotten, here’s the SVN and its accompanying Trac. There are also some ancient binaries published in our Files section at Sourceforge.
Now switching topic, our latest release (Gracia Epilogue) won’t be added to the nightly build until it’s acceptably tested for a little while, unstable nightlies are still being built on Gracia Final. Wait a little bit for Epilogue nightlies or build GE on your own, and enjoy!
