Old releases source code

Post by theredcat » 2018-01-15T11:44:28-07:00

Hello,

I'm trying to download old releases to compile and package them. By "Old" I mean 6.7.7-10 (SVN 8534) from 2012 and versions above.

I'm not seeing theses tags on the public github, but the first commit contain the release 6.5.5-6. I can't access the mirror at https://git.imagemagick.org/repos/ImageMagick since it's currently down for me. I've also looked up https://gitlab.com/ImageMagick/ImageMagick which doesn't contain old releases too.

I've found https://sourceforge.net/projects/imagem ... d-sources/ but it seems that not every old releases is present on this repository.

For example, the 6.9.7-4 wich is the debian Stretch (Current debian release) is not present on the git, the sourceforge old-source repository.

Where may I download old releases? Is there an "official" repository where I may find all releases ?

If it's not the case, I could build my own repository reading the 421 changes in the version.sh commits in the git repo one by one and rebuild a version history, but it's not very convenient...

Hi!

Thanks for you reply, since it's for compilation, i'm searching for the sources.

And thanks for the link, that's the goldmine i was searching for!

Will thoses archives be removed at some point or do you have a conservation policy (e.g. : keep sources forever, and bin for X years) ?

The one from Imagemagick will be around. The other is not from Imagemagick, so I do not know how long it will be around.
