Hey all. I might start investigating Inform 6 again. So I just wanted to clarify a few things. For Inform 6, I took a look at the releases distribution on GitHub (github.com/DavidKinder/Inform6/releases) and that seems to show 6.33 released in May of 2014 but, more recently (July 2016), a 6.32 was released.
Yet the description of the repo itself says “This is version 6.34 of the Inform compiler.” Note: 6.34. And the release notes seem to indicate specific changes made for that version.
Checking the IF Archive link on the repo, there is only Inform 6.33 from May 2014.
Given that I6 sits behind I7, I also checked out the i6n reference page and it says “the version of Inform 6 used by Inform 7 is Inform 6.32.”
So the confirming parts here are:
(1) Is the version that I7 is using the 6.32 that was released on July 2016?
(2) Does that mean if we’re only using I6, we should use the 6.33 from May 2014?
I ask (1) because I presume that explains the more recent release of a past version. I ask (2) because it seems like 6.33 has been packaged up and thus is considered to be a bit more “official” thus perhaps indicating that the repo of 6.34 wasn’t necessarily canonical yet.
