ok, that's a good point, very annoying.
We've upgraded MoreFiles to 1.5.3 in 8.3.5 and use its new
GenerateUniqueName in tcl instead of the old built in one, maybe that
was a mistake.
The problem is that the version of the MoreFiles library embedded in
Alpha8 is still 1.5.2 which doesn't have GenerateUniqueName... no easy
way around that except upgrading the library in Alpha8 which is hard to
do by hand...
> No worries, I can understand why. I just reinstalled 8.3.4 meanwhile
the next release of Alpha8 will be built against 8.4, so the version
mismatch problem will go away since people will have to reinstall Tcl
BTW, I'm essentially done with the new Alpha8/X release, I'm waiting
for 8.4.1 to go final at this point since we need a OS9 and OSX Tcl
distribution for Alpha's purposes and I would rather not have to build
the distros twice...
