Building latest development version

If you want to see the changes since the last release, you can check SharpMimeTools' change log.

If you want to build from source the latest development version, first you need to download the source code:

Once you have the source you need the latest binary distribution of Log4Net.

Multi-platform instructions (nant):

  • Copy log4net.dll into sharpmimetools\bin\net\ folder (or sharpmimetools\bin\mono\ if that's your target platform)
  • Execute 'sn -k SharpMimeTools.snk' inside SharpMimeTools folder to generate a new keypair.
  • Inside SharpMimeTools folder execure one of the following commands:
    • 'nant debug' for a build with debug simbols
    • 'nant release' for a release build. It does not contain any logging instructions
    • 'nant release-log' for a release build with logging enabled (through log4net)

Windows only instructions:

  • Copy log4net.dll into sharpmimetools\bin folder (if it doesn't exist create it)
