Installing Inform 7 on Fedora

I’m thinking about getting back into interactive fiction, but I’m having trouble just installing Inform 7. Is the most recent version really from 2015? Anyone have a guide on how to get the needed dependencies?

I saw the thread GNOME Inform 7 6M62 on Fedora 29 (& other recent distros?), but I can’t find an actual list of dependencies to install in order to get this working.

Yes, really! Don’t let that scare you - Inform7 is a stable platform that many people use, and it is far from abandoned. It does tend to go several years between major updates.

That said, Graham Nelson has announced there should be an update this year, and there is an eventual plan for it to go open source.
