Calcurse - Snapshot


A new web site was set up for the calcurse project and the current page was kept for historical reasons but is not updated anymore. Here is the link to the new calcurse website: http://calcurse.org



What is the snapshot package?

Between formal releases of calcurse, snapshots are made available which contain the code as found in the CVS at the date the snapshot was created.
The name of the snapshot package is of the form: calcurse-YYYYMMDD.tar.gz, where YYYYMMDD is the date when the snapshot was built.

There is no promise that the snapshot is completely functional, or even install. On the other hand, a snasphot may contain bug fixes that address issues you faced with an official release. You can look at the changelog to see if a problem you encountered was solved between the formal release you are using and the available snapshot.

Before downloading and installing a snapshot release, be aware of the following:

Your feedback on the snapshot packages is greatly welcome. When reporting bugs, do not forget to mention the snapshot date.

cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@culot.org:/cvs login
Then to retrieve the source tree:

And to update an existing local source tree:
