Gravity Open Source
The latest Gravity 2.7 Open Source Build is 2067
Gravity source code is available open source under the BSD license. Developers need MSVC++ to compile the code. The Gravity open source releases will be numbered Version 2.7.
A SourceForge (SF) project and CVS repository are set up.
The code and compiled binaries can be downloaded from the SourceForge project site. If you are a user and want to try the compiled executable you should read the important information and notes for ends users. You will have to make one small registry change unless you do a clean install.
You can also download (checkout) the code by anonymous CVS login. Read the CVS docs on the
SourceForge site for CVS help. The CVS root is something like
Regular expressions are changed to Perl Compatible Regular Expressions (PCREs). You may have to change filters, rules or scoring that use regular expressions. You MUST perform the registry change mentioned in the Important Changes so that Gravity recognizes binary parts and for the complete binaries filters to work.
You can revert back to builds 2056 through 2060, the database has not changed.
However, if you performed the registry change for complete binaries, you should
change it back to the default setting
Developers must have MSVC++ to compile the code. It is distributed as a complete zipped MSVC++ workspace or by CVS. I compiled it with Service Pack 2 with no major problems. If you downloaded a zip file, unzip the zip file to a directory, preserving the directory structure. Open workspace news.dsw and build (set configuration to Win32 release). If you use CVS you know what to do. If not - good luck! SourceForge has tons of documents and links for using CVS.
YAHOO MAIL LIST AND GROUP
The yahoo list is intended as a resource for developers working with the code. You can choose to subscribe only to the mail list or become a member and access the list and group area. The group URL is: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/gravity-dev/
