The great Extended did it again !

Via his blog ndlessly, Extended just announced the release of his open-source tool "Luna", that allows you to convert a .lua file into a .tns file.

"Well, what's new? We already have that ?", you'd say.

Well, yes, we do. But the community's converter actually produce a file that is currently readable by OSes < 3.0.2.

In fact, since this version, TI added the need to have a fully correctly-encrypted .tns file in order to be able to open it. And this required a specific proprietary encryption algorithm that nobody but TI had (though a part of it had been patented). And the community couldn't do anything about that, since it had not been cracked. The only way was to use TI's official scripting tools.

Well, this time is over. Extended successfully reversed-engineered TI's secret encryption algorithm and made "Luna", a tool that can produce correctly encoded files, as OS 3.0.2+ expects !



Luna is available to download here.

Extended also said that support for C and assembly in OS 3.0 might not be very far... !

What an exciting pair of news...

Have fun !

Excellent! Finally we have a convenient way to code Lua on a computer. :D

Whooo, nice news!
Thanks for reporting Adriweb!

Edit: I have successfully compiled it on Linux (need to replace -leay32 with -lssl).
However, I noticed that Luna will check the code (using lua), and error on stuff with 'on', because its not defined (it is on the calculator). I'll now modify the code to skip this check. Big mistake of me x)

Edit2:
Converted my file without an error, didn't test it yet :)

Just to be clearer on one point of adriweb's post: Luna fortunately doesn't infringe TI's patent in any way.

Oh great news! And it works on Linux (natively)! This is awesome!

I managed to build it, convert files and I also tested them ExtendeD, want me to release Linux Binaries, even though I think it's quite easy for anybody to build it :)

Someone should package for Debian (.deb) and Arch Linux (PKGBUILD/AUR).

If people provide them, ExtendeD could update the archive with native Linux and MacOS X binaries, but making packages may be too big of a hammer ;)

There's no Luna in Ubuntu Repositories :P It could be done but I'm not sure if it's necessary.
