Release Notes

Simplifies building of ROOT on the windows platform by generating a Visual Studio C++ make project that will build and run (and debug ROOT). See Installation and Usage for more information.

WARNING: if you have a previous version already installed please uninstall it first! 32 bit/64 bit issue

This release adds the following things:
- Generates a working project for VC2010 beta 1. ROOT does not yet build under 2010's C++ compiler, however. And it could well be that this tool needs updating for beta 2.
- Remembers settings between invokations
- Warns when you are doing something potentially dumb (like including a space in your ROOTSYS).

And it fixes a lot of things as well:
- Correctly deal with "\" in paths as arguments to the configure plan (i.e. it is now much easier to add the python libraries to the command line).
- general GUI improvements
- Config dialog box improved so you can't enter bad data

This is the next build after 1.32. 1.32 and previous are located on sourceforge. Bugs should be submitted here on codeplex or email directly to me.
