Recommended source release for compiling?

Post by asiga » Sun Aug 07, 2016 7:46 am

What source release would you recommend for compiling? The latest, master branch? Or does it have important regressions? Do you keep any "currently recommended source release"?

I'm not going to build today, I'm waiting for a new Skylake i7 that will arrive to me someday these weeks...

Oh... and... the build will be on OS X 10.11.6 ElCap. Does CEN64 build fine there, with clang?

I believe it's still best to compile from master, or download the official binaries and use the AVX build for best performance.

OS: Windows 10
Specs: Intel Core i7-7700K @ 4.2GHz, 16GB DDR4-RAM, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti
Main build: AVX (official)

Yes -- master is intended to be as a stable, "if you see bugs in here, you should report them", type of branch. Anything else is a toss up.

angrylion-rdp-sse2 is an experimental branch that contains a lot of RDP threading and optimizations that you might also want to look at.

It builds correctly, but generates less-optimal binaries than does GCC. I recommend installing macports or something to get GCC and building with that.
