Release Name: TuxMath 1.5.8 - Source Tarball

Release Notes

Source tar.gz archive for TuxMath 1.5.8, including the Andika font.  Suitable for installation on Unix-style systems using a simple "./configure; make; make install".

Build requires the *-dev files for SDL, SDL_image, SDL_mixer, and SDL_ttf. Gnu gettext is no longer required for installation. All of these should be easily available in most Gnu-Linux distributions. The Gnu Autotools are not needed to build from this package.

Change Log

2007.Nov.11 ( - revision 319)
Version 1.5.8
      * Added Czech po file - contributed by:
      Jaroslav Krejčí <>

      * Minor tweak of "janitor penguin" sprite files to tone down glare

2007.Nov.11 ( - revision 316)

      * Gettext again works properly, AFAICT (was broken in 1.5.6 and 1.5.7). Much 
        thanks to Gettext maintainer Bruno Haible for helpful correspondence! The intl
        directory is now included in preparation of trying to get gettext working on
        Windows - nothing done on that yet.  I think we can start adding as many po
        files as we can get.
      * Some more removal of dead code and unused variables.

2007.Oct.30 ( - revision 311)

      * Uncrufting! - eliminated tuxtype_playsound(), moved playsound() to audio.c,
        and removed playsound.c and .h; eliminated alphabet.c; moved DarkenScreen()
        to SDL_extras.c and eliminated pause.c; moved SwitchScreenMode() to SDL_extras.c.
      * Change to using 32 bits/pixel, however all functions that need this info now
        use PIXEL_BITS #define'd in tuxmath.h - recompiling for 16 BPP only requires
        changing this def (confirmed that both settings work, at least in Linux).
