This page contains the information about releases as it looked around 2006. Don't be fooled by words like 'new'...
Looking for a new version of AlphaX ?
AlphaX is available for Mac OS X.
The second final, public release of AlphaX 8.0 (8.0.2) has been released. AlphaX comes in three different flavors, for Mac OS X versions 10.2.x, 10.3.x, and 10.4.x:
(Jaguar: 13.4 mB download ; Panther: 14.3 mB ; Tiger: 10.9 mB.)
Unlike previous beta versions of AlphaX, there is no need to download and install the "Tcl" software library. Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) includes a Tcl distribution (version 4.7) in the Library of the operating system; the Jaguar and Panther distributions of AlphaX include a Tcl interpreter embedded within the application. Each flavor listed above is upwards compatible, i.e. the Jaguar version should also work in Panther and Tiger.
Looking for a new version of Alpha8 ?
The first final, public release of Alpha8 8.0.2 has been released. You can download it from here:
Follow the installation instructions found in the unpacked archive.
Looking for a new version of Alphatk ?
Alphatk is available for Windows, Unix, and Mac OS X.
The current released version of Alphatk can be found at the [http://www.purl.org/net/Alpha/Alphatk] web site. This site also includes information about older releases.
If you are using MacOSX, please see the NotesForMacOSXUsers.
Using expired beta releases
Beta releases of Alpha8/X expire a fixed number of days after they are built (c.f Changes - Alpha [http://cvs.sourceforge.net/viewcvs.py/*checkout*/alphatcl/Help/Changes%20-%20Alpha?rev=HEAD]).
While it is preferred that you use the the latest (i.e. non-expired) release available, it is sometimes useful to run older releases. To override the beta expiry check at startup, create a folder (or file) next to your Alpha8/X application named Don't expire Alpha beta (exactly).
