Project Requirements Updates

Post by kjLotus » Tue Jul 21, 2015 7:40 pm

As of 2ff5620f7060cc28eb8c8fd1aca3d56dd029a2de, the project will require either Visual Studio 2015 or GCC 4.9 to compile.

Visual Studio 2015 Community is free and missing almost no features. I even use it because Professional has nothing useful to me or to DSP.

GCC 4.9 is not the default version in Ubuntu 14.04, you'll need to use the Ubuntu Toolchain PPA to get it

Code: Select all

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-toolchain-r/test
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install g++-4.9
sudo update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/g++ g++ /usr/bin/g++-4.9 90

just wondering.... I have a legit version of 2013 Ultimate-MSDN I got through school at a killer price. What are the main differences between that and 2015 community?

2015 > 2013.. Plus it is legit free. I've removed 2013 from all my machines.

Seriously though, if you didn't find yourself using any of the "Ultimate" features of 2013 then 2015 Community edition will be just fine. And 2015 Community has some pretty neat profiling/debugging options as it is.

most of the useful features that were part of professional are part of community now (only thing missing is codelens, but that's not that useful for c++ anyways)

the stuff ultimate/enterprise has over professional is useless to most anyways, so not really losing much there
