So I thought this category was looking a little bare…
I’d like some feedback on the Windows packaging, and how it could be improved.
The easiest, and possibly most desirable change, would be to combine the studio and synfig core installs. You can’t use studio without synfig core, and I imagine most (all?) people will want to play with the gui rather than have standalone windows renderers… I believe I can figure out how to update the scripts to do this, so I’ll take a stab at it in my copious leisure time.
How useful would it be to re-distribute GTK+ & GTKmm? I know Inkscape, Gimp include it as part of their installs, but I’m concerned that you end up in versioning competitions with other apps.
How desirable is it to register as a known publisher or a trusted publisher, so that Vista doesn’t pop-up a dialog box asking if you REALLY want to install, and trust the application? From my understanding, a becoming known publisher would be free to do, but to be trusted would require paying money to a certificate authority.
