Functy deb and rpm packages

  • Posted on June 28, 2009 at 5:45 pm

Binary packages of Functy 0.22 are now available in .deb and .rpm format. I threw these together this weekend without having a great deal of understanding of what I was doing, so it’s possible they’re just a mess and won’t work at all.

As I use Ubuntu I’m not able to properly test the rpm package. What’s more some corrupt files on my system are preventing apt from working properly, so I’m not even able to fully test the deb package either. It’s all a bit rubbish really, but they’re available anyway as I’m sure they’ll be a better place to start for many people. Fingers crossed they’ll work as expected, but if not I assume I’ll find out soon enough!

You can get the new packages from the SourceForge projects page page, or click on the downloads link in the sidebar.

I’m pleased to say that version 0.22 of Functy is now ready for release. Although this version does fix some bugs, the main improvement is that there’s now an automatic installer for Windows users.

Oops. After releasing version 0.2 I immediately found a couple of bugs! So version 0.21 is now available as a minor bug-fix release over 0.2.

Functy is a 3D graph drawing package. The emphasis for the application is to allow Cartesian and spherical functions to be plotted and altered quickly and easily. This immediacy and the vivid results are intended to promote fun exploration of 3D functions. Functy can be built for GNU/Linux or Windows.

This 0.2 release is still beta, but has a number of improvements over 0.1 including:
