    Hello,

    Are there instructions anywhere as to how one might go about trying to install patches that have fixed certain bugs (and perhaps advice on whether it is a good idea to do so)?

    I have recently installed TXS 2.6.4 on Windows 8.1 and would like to apply some recent patches that have fixed some annoying bugs.

    I have done a quick search in the discussion forums but haven't found anything there (I note sometimes the searches don't seem to work properly though).

    Thanks!

    You cannot 'install' a patch. The patches apply to the source code. You will have to compile TXS yourself or wait for the next release.

    Ok, thanks I've read through the instructions for compiling, and I'll give that a shot.

    A couple of questions though - if one of you fixes a bug, and then you say something like "fixed in e29929f8627c", or "fixed in repository", then what does that mean? Does compiling the default trunk (or branch, if that's the right term) include those fixes, and if not then how do I locate the fix?

      fix in repository means that compiling trunk( or tip as it is called in
      hg) contains all fixes and new features.
      A second branch "stable" contains some bug fixes but no new features.

    Maybe you should read about mercurial a little.
    basically, there is one repository (a kind of data base) but data within is organized in branches/changesets etc.
    If you clone the repository, you will see "tip" which normally is fine.
