With upcoming changes to data protection and privacy laws in Europe coming into effect soon, we thought this would be a good time to remind everyone that we do have a privacy policy.
This applies to all users and visitors world-wide.

We have made a few changes to the language to make it clearer in relation to this new regulation but fundamentally, the terms and your rights are unchanged.

Win & Mac Nightly builds gone

Post by bradsm87 » Tue May 23, 2017 5:20 am

Is this due to a technical problem or is it a decision to no longer offer nightlies for Win and Mac?

Large announcement - there was a problem with one server, malware was served up for a few days on some downloads, and the nightly builds were off-line until the server was rebuilt.

Do we have any other options for getting the nightlies or is there a plan to release a patch/version update ahead of the normal release schedule? I have a bug where the initial scan never completes and am completely dead in the water. (I think many forum users are reporting it as Windows 10 creator update issue and some users have had success with nightlies.) I was checking into building my own release, but I guess I need Unix computer to do this?

There are instructions for building on Windows. And Windows 10 supports installing Ubuntu Linux as a sub-system.

Building from source is currently the only option. We don't have an ETA when the service will return at the moment.

The upcoming 1.1 release will be in the not so distant future once we sort out our code signing arrangements.

The nightlies doesn't fix the problem. It's not actually a HandBrake issue. Our app is just broken by other software interacting with the operating system badly. The current solution is to add an exception for HandBrake to RivaTuner.


You can build under windows 10 if you enable developer mode and install the Ubuntu developer sub system that comes with windows.
