And no, I'm not just talking about FRED. wxFRED is churning along at whatever pace it's churning, and will hopefully arrive some day. But there are numerous other tools at this point that could maybe use a little cross platform attention which would help the community.
wxLauncher seems to be in a good state on the three major platforms, but I hope to test it on FreeBSD before 3.8.
PCS2 still has some issues compiling for Mac last I checked. I am curious if anyone with a Linux desktop has had any success compiling and running it?
Knossos seems to be heavily developed with cross-platform support in mind, so I don't have too many concerns there. But I imagine I will also be the one trying to supply builds of it for FreeBSD as well.
FS2 has a really nice nightly/release system in place now thanks mostly to m|m. But it would be excellent if we could start expanding that to our other tools as well. They don't see as much work but having this automated might ensure they keep working when they do have changes made, and that builds are available for testing by all. It would also blueprint the build procedure for anyone else attempting to build from source on various platforms. PCS2, wxLauncher, Knossos could all benefit from this. wxLauncher and PCS2 are currently both already hosted on our SCP git org, but maybe we should discuss if we'd like to get Knossos under that umbrella at some point too, to benefit from our existing permissions configuration with users, third party hosts, etc.
