New Visual Studio 2012 Express Edition solution and projects. #1509
New Visual Studio 2012...
The version that allows building desktop (i.e; the current 100% of windows projects) was released just the other day. It can be downloaded and installed onto Windows 7 and Vista PCs so I grabbed it to try it out and what better way than bring the Pioneer projects and solutions across?!?
I expect that I will be switching back and forth between this and the #VC2010# so I'm happy to be the maintenance/janitor for this. It's reasonable to assume that we'll be getting an influx of bright new shiny people who will probably have this version installed.
New VC2012 means new files, new library versions, new labour...
I've downloaded and built the necessary sigc, libogg, libvorbis and thus libvorbisfile libraries static varieties as required and they have been force added to the "win32/Libs" directory.
None, it's an IDE and compiler/linker/etc.
Does seem to build and link a bit quicker maybe, might be my perception because it's so shiny.
I like the new icon though, and when it start up the loading splash is pretty. Then it goes away and everything is ok with subtle blues and grey, then you load a project... and everything is grey.
It's Really That Grey?
Yup, although I hear in some countries they'd spell it "gray" but I always think that's a unit of absorbed dose commonly associated with ionising radiation.
Please stop rambling.
This is really the only thing that matters, to include a new build config it needs to be 1) used 2) maintained. I can't really review this (I'm going to stick with 2010).
Prebuilt win32 libs: maybe we should consider moving these to a submodule...?
I read this during my early morning mail catchup, which I do in bed with my phone immediately after waking up. My laughter woke my wife. Fortunately she thought it was funny too :)
But yep, all good. Happy with as many build systems as people want to use as long as they're maintained. If any fall too far behind they get removed.
