A binary installer for Tuxmath-2.0.2 for win32 has been released, due to the 2.0.1 installer file not working. This release also fixes a bug causing crashes when the new "powerup" comet is created, present in 2.0.0 and 2.0.1., as well as a bug in Factoroids that prevented the asteroid numbers from being displayed.
Our apologies to those who have experienced problems from these bugs.
There is still a bug in the turn-based multiplayer game on Windows that prevents this activity from working - we hope to fix it soon.
Tux4Kids is pleased to announce the release of TuxMath-2.0.0, as source code and an executable Windows binary installer.
This is a major upgrade, with many important new features:
- greatly improved LAN mode
- complete overhaul of Factoroids, with mouse support, levels organized around prime factors, and professional-quality artwork.
- new powerup for main comet game.
- new game music
- improved menus with "tooltips" for menu items.
- in Windows build, proper conversion of text files into Windows-friendly format.
- functioning Native Language Support (major bugfix)
- numerous updated or added translations.
All users of TuxMath should upgrade!
Tux Math 1.7.0 has been released, with major enhancements as a result of the 2008 Google Summer of Code. The current project home page is: http://www.tux4kids.com. Current downloads are available both on the above site and here at Sourceforge. Major new features include high-resolution fullscreen support at the native OS resolution, as well as a new video-game style factor review, "Factoroids".
TuxMath 1.6.1 - now building successfully on MacOSX!
TuxMath now builds and installs correctly on MacOSX with a simple "./configure; make; sudo make install" as long as you have the needed libs (see Release Notes). So, if you are a Mac user with a Unix background, you're all set. If you are a "normal" Mac user, unfortunately we don't yet have a simple binary package, but hopefully we soon will. TuxMath is being added to the excellent MacPorts project (www.macports.org), and when that is accomplished it will provide easy binary packages, even if you don't have MacPorts itself installed.
The Unix build also includes a command-line admin program for managing the new password-less login system for tracking progress of individual users. This is intended for schools that use a single "Student" login, rather than accounts for each student.
