Re: [Sc-devel] 3.2 packaging

A package installer is actually more complicated for the user than

releases of SC, archiving/managing Application Support, etc.

At this point, there really isn't much point in the installer, since it will basically just be putting a folder in Applications, so I agree. I'll just do a .dmg with build, quarks, sc3-plugins and source included.

Wouldn't the best option be to improve Quarks to support UGens and
SwingOSC? We could also create a Quarks installation GUI (the current
one only manages existing installs AFAIK) and add a menu item for it
to encourage new users to explore 3rd party packages.

GO FOR IT! We've been talking about this for a bit, and if you can get it working, I think it would be amazing. I would love to see all of sc3-plugins simply be Quarks. SwingOSC makes sense as well.

Do I have write permissions on the sourceforge site to
upload 3.2? Or does Dan have to do this?

I think anyone can do it. I've uploaded the last two releases.

Great... good to know.
