In general, as usual, you can compile the Linux version yourself using the script linked from the official site, http://lpg.ticalc.org/prj_tilp/download/install_tilp.sh :)
But for now, if you want to test the GTK+Builder interface, and the new ROM dumpers, you have to apply the patches from the tarball yourself.

From the tarball, http://lpg.ticalc.org/prj_tilp/beta/patchset_20120724_1510.tar.bz2 :)

Nope. My mention of "user documentation" was a description of one of the reasons why these patches are not committed yet (the documentation hasn't been fully updated), not what these patches are :)

Glad to hear TILP is moving forward to 1.17 :)
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

I'm progressively committing the constituents of the patchset, after performing small changes which don't impact executables but impact the build system / documentation / etc.

I have refreshed the installer at http://lpg.ticalc.org/prj_tilp/beta/setup.exe .
All changes have been committed to SVN.
As usual, the install script is http://lpg.ticalc.org/prj_tilp/download/install_tilp.sh .

Highlights since the previous beta build (several posts above):
* added initial, experimental TI-80 VSC support, by Randy Compton. This model is very rare nowadays, and the only linking command it supports is "get screenshot";
* support for Nspire OS extensions, currently limited to English-Chinese dictionaries;
* a new function for the Nspire remote control feature, which makes it possible to implement nRemote ( http://ourl.ca/16836 / http://tiplanet.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=10246 ) through FLOSS code - even before nRemote is publicly available :P

Some spelling fixes and minor man page improvements, too.

Please go forth and test ;)

Four months after the previous beta, and a year after the previous release, the development cycle is drawing to a close, thanks to Benjamin Moody's important contributions :)

I'm releasing an intermediate beta tonight. It should soon be followed by a release candidate containing today's patch from Benjamin, for clearing the last significant hurdle for releasing TILP II 1.17 (minizip -> libarchive transition in libtifiles), and a minor fix (TODO) for Debian packaging (not copying Windows stuff even when compiling on non-Windows for non-Windows).
In order to handle Benjamin's libarchive patch, I need to set up some extra things and spend time on testing it and reading the code - but it's Friday evening, not the best time for doing that :D

* refreshed the installer at http://tiplanet.org/beta/setup.exe . (unusual URL, the ticalc.org FTP is currently experiencing trouble)
* the patchset against SVN HEAD is http://tiplanet.org/beta/tilp_patchset_20121214.tar.bz2 .
* is usual, the install script is http://lpg.ticalc.org/prj_tilp/download/install_tilp.sh .

Highlights since the previous beta build (several posts above):
* improved support for "raw mode" external linking, by Benjamin Moody, thanks to two new functions for getting and setting both lines simultaneously (if supported by the cable);
* 84+DUSB ROM dumper: dump the certificate page as well;
* libticables: add dynamic libusb-win32 loader, which paves the way for driver-less libticables-based emulator installers - IOW, installation of TilEm and TIEmu on school computers without admin privileges;
* bugfixes: for instance, desynchronized UI and code reported by Deep Thought. The other bugfixes / improvements are less visible to users (for instance, robustness fixes and tests - API functions shouldn't crash when they're passed NULL arguments).

Please go forth and test ;)

Glad this is still progressing. :)

I assume this fixes the incompatibilities with TI-Graph Link games like Reuben Quest, right? (I think it was an issue with pic0 or something, but I forgot. )

Making it possible to:
* receive Pic0-Pic9 from 84+ calculators through DirectLink, and send them through legacy I/O to the members of the TI-Z80 series;
* send Pic0-Pic9 variables obtained from TI-Z80 calculators through legacy I/O, to 84+ calculators through DirectLink
is difficult. Benjamin Moody explained why it's harder than I originally thought. Therefore, this task will probably not be undertaken for quite a while.

Using groups is a way to mitigate the problem.

Ah ok. I was wondering since it was reported apparently and Sorunome ran into the problem this week when trying to install Reuben.

Idk why TI changed the format of those files in 2004 or so to new standards x.x

I vaguely remember that issue, but I thought we had fixed it. :(

(One issue that can't be fixed is that some assembly programs will let you create non-standard Pic variables numbered 10 to 255 - these variables can be transferred using traditional link cables, but the OS and the design of the USB protocol do not allow them to be transferred over USB.  There's nothing to be done about that, except, as Lionel says, you can create a group (.8xo) file of them and ungroup on the calc.)

---

Lionel, I've sent you a patch that should fix the more pressing issues with Pic (and Str and GDB) files.

Compatibility with non-tokenized files (I think this is what you're talking about, DJ) is a little more complicated and will take more work.
