Howdy everybody,

Well, file-4.23 hasn't been around for a while on the astron ftp server, and the download link is broke cause of that.

The current location to download file has 4.24 and 4.25. We can either change to another download location, or just upgrade file to 4.24 or 4.25.

The ChangeLog? in 4.25 shows the following chances since 4.23 (bottom up):

For 1.1.0 I would like to stick with 4.23.

In trunk I have no problem with upgrading it.

comment:2 Changed 14 years ago by William Harrington

Right Joe,

Why I put it for svn and milestone 1.2.0 :) So far I haven't ran into anything weird. Gonna have a file-4.25 torture coming up soon. Where I just use file on a crapload of stuff! Hmm, that might work.

I know we changed the download location to the clfs server a while back, Time to do it again I guess.

comment:4 Changed 14 years ago by Joe Ciccone

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

Updated the download location to use the clfs server in r4001 for both the 1.1 branch and trunk.
