SableVM SDK is coming...

No more pain! - I think this should be the (cheap) slogan of SableVM SDK :-) The story would go like that.... Many users for years suffered from troubles of installing plenty of dependencies (with libffi and libpopt being among the worst ones) just to compile SableVM. Sleepless nights, torn out hairs (and all that). But then with the advent of SableVM SDK package everything became so simple...

Ok, enough. But the fact is, that this is (or will be) the fetch'n install type of package. The tarball of preview release of SableVM SDK contains:

  • sablevm
  • libffi
  • libpopt
  • sablevm-classpath
  • jikes

The "internal" versions of libffi, libpopt and jikes are used only in absence of system wide installations that could be used. The detection is of course automatic. So where can you get this beauty? Just grab it from here. And don't forget to let us know how it went.

Happy installing!
