Inform release 5G67

Release date: 2007-11-10 12:00:00

Description of this release

Build 5G67 presents substantially richer support for handling text: for the first time, arbitrary and manipulable strings of text are first-class values in Inform. Substantial internal reforms, notably a new implementation of the type-checker (now the third such), lead also to other improvements: notably the ability to store and play back entire actions, and a form of boolean type for the first time - "truth state". Finally, Inform is now available for three new operating systems: Mac OS X Leopard (10.5), and Fedora and Ubuntu Linux. We welcome Philip Chimento to the Inform team as the author of the Gnome user interface for Linux.

This is no longer the current build. Almost all users should look for the latest one. Old builds like this are unsupported, and are kept only for the benefit of people who need exactly to recreate the system as it stood in the past, perhaps to replicate an old Inform project.
