How to get or build latest development

Marc Dzaebel
Hi,

I noticed, that there are already some fixes, that are not in the latest preview I really would like to use. I assume I have to checkout the project and build it or are there other possibilites? Is there a build description?

Thanks, Marc

I don't think that current git will get you very far, because the menus
are broken (and there are lots of error popups). However, of course you
can try it:

- download and install gradle and git

- clone the repo:
$ git clone https://github.com/freeplane/freeplane

- compile:
$ cd freeplane
$ gradle clean build dist

- use DIST/freeplane_bin-1.4.1.zip
(you cannot use the windows installer as that has to be built by a
developer - it's not recommended anyway!)

- unzip freeplane_bin-1.4.1.zip and start with
  freeplane.bat/freeplane.sh

Good Luck,

it works, but I had to comment check_translation and I get initial errors during startup. However, it shows really nice behavior so I'm looking forward to the next preview.

Thanks a lot!
