Well, you said manually compiling it all yourself ran without problems right? So the only issue was the precompiled?
May just be a compatibility issue between distros. I compiled the precompiled one on Ubuntu.
Jeff, Correct. Under Linux Mint 17. I'm not able to run the precompiled version. I'm able compile, and run the versions from the github site. Can I assume that the Master branch is the latest release (3.8)? Is it possible to see which version I'm running from the editor?
Correct, the master branch is 3.8.
As for the version, hm...I don't know that there's anything that has a version readout in the editor, but I think there really should be. Good suggestion.
Also, wrapped the release notes!
Here they are.
