Obtaining a static url for the latest builds?


#1

Just wondering how feasible it is for Travis to also upload the latest build in a latest folder so that the URL remains fixed

So, instead of going, for example, to

http://metaeducation.s3.amazonaws.com/travis-builds/0.3.40/r3-4f44c19-debug-cpp.exe

for the current latest build, we can go to

http://metaeducation.s3.amazonaws.com/travis-builds/latest/0.3.40/r3.exe

This would make things easier to publish documents in case people need to use wget etc.

I like this. But I’m also wondering about version releases? - Criteria for stable r3/ren-c releases

So is it possible to also keep last version release on Travis? Something like this…

http://metaeducation.s3.amazonaws.com/travis-builds/version/2.102.0.3.40/r3.exe

Or would we need to copy off and serve from elsewhere?

If we can’t script it, then yes, that may be what we have to do.

Any takers for the task?

I’m happy to include this as part of updating CHANGES when there is a version release.
