This set include versions for Windows, Linux, and good old MS-DOS. The Windows version may be downloaded either with the documentation included (11 MB) or without (4.2 MB). The documentation may be obtained as a separate package also from the same website.
Along with this, the latest TADS 2 and 3 Player’s Kit has also been released, and IF players are encouraged to download this new version.
A maintenance release of TADS 2 (v2.5.10) has also been announced, and may be downloaded from the TADS 2 Patch Page.
Congrats to Mike Roberts and the rest of the T3 team!
Nice to see it finally out, even if I’m not planning to use it myself.
I have to wonder about the timing, though. The IFComp kicks off in a couple of weeks and now changes have come about in the two versions of one of the major programming languages. No doubt this is going to have a knock on effect when it turns out certain things that worked in an older version don’t work in a new one… and certain Tads 2 and 3 games in the comp are going to come off worse as a result. I can’t help thinking it might have been better to have at least waited until after the Comp.
