I think that the install_nimble.nims script installs the bleeding edge version of Nimble, perhaps it would be better if it installed the latest tagged release or some other targeted version.

Today, I used the install_nimble.nims from v0.15.2 of Nim and got:
nimble -v
nimble v0.7.11 compiled at 2016-12-27 12:42:35

Then, later I cloned and compiled the latest Nimble from GitHub and got this:
src/nimble -v
nimble v0.7.11 compiled at 2016-12-27 15:59:10

In both cases I seem to have gotten v0.7.11.

True, but install_nimble.nims is deprecated anyway and the koch.nim replacement can do both. (Though it's not documented yet how that works.)

Yeah, understood, thanks. Although I don't think you can use koch.nim to install Nimble from the current released version of Nim, can you? Or to put it another way, is install_nimble.nims deprecated in the current release version (0.15.2)?

Although I have used koch.nim to install Nimble from the development branch and it worked fine (there was a comment in the output of install_nimble.nims explaining what to do). I'd be very happy to use koch.nim if it's available in a stable release. Thanks again.

True, but 0.16 is just around the corner.

Well, that sounds awesome :) In which case I'd be happy to wait for 0.16 and use koch to install Nimble ... (as long as that doesn't install the bleeding edge version of Nimble).
