What?

GraphicAll.org started in 2005 as a clear need was raising among the Blender community, this open-source 3D app showed such a fast development that was hard to keep up with all the changes, some developers would build and host their own builds, but back then that was already a hard task to mantain.

With 6 years proof that this service actually works and helped the Blender community, we are inviting other open-source communities to join the party.
Spread the word and get your favorite software to showoff its latest goodies!

Who?

  • Dolf 'macouno' Veenvliet, macouno.com | Gears & magic behind our system (unique from scratch! :)
  • Daniel 'ZanQdo' Salazar, 3Developer.com | Administration & mainteance. (boring paper work)
  • Pablo 'venomgfx' Vazquez, PabloVazquez.org | CSS & HTML (often breaking PHP stuff)
  • Nathan 'jesterKing' Letwory, Letwory Interactive | Server wrangler & Blender Dev (& planet, & storm!)

Numbers:

  • Since April 28th 2011, GraphicAll.org got 3,449,729 downloads from 1089 builds, with 3435 comments.

Thanks!

GraphicAll.org wouldn't exist without the support from users all around the globe, so huge thanks to all of you. You're awesome.

Glossary:

  • Trunk is the main development branch which ends up being an official release after the development cycle is over. This builds should not contain anything different from the official development repository and are usually considered 'safe' to use
  • Experimental builds may contain personal development branches, patched builds or any other tweak. Be careful with this ones, they may not be good for usage in serious work!
  • GSoC stands for Google Summer of Code. Each GSoC branch is the work of a student working on a specific development target. This Branches are usually merged to Trunk if/when they meet the desired goals. As with experimental builds you should be careful when using this for serious work
  • Optimized builds are specially compiled to achieve increased performance in certain types of CPUs. The downside of these builds is that they require compatible hardware to run
  • Non-Optimized builds are compiled to run in a broader number of CPU types. This builds usually achieve slower performance than their optimized counterparts
  • 32 bit is a type of legacy CPU architecture and following operating system that is still in use in some computers. You can only run this builds if their architecture matches your system
  • 64 bit is a new type of CPU architecture and following operating system that allows programs to use an increased amount of memory. You can only run this builds if their architecture matches your system
  • Debug builds contain extra information in them that can be read back by debugging software. This can guide developers in the process of fixing errors or crashes. However, this binaries are larger in size and non-optimized for speed, because of that it is recomended to use regular builds for normal use of the software

Uploader's Rules and Etiquette:

Your builds are your babies! we expect you to take care of them in the following manners:

  • You may edit, delete or update any build you 'own'. If you where to replace the uploaded file with a new one, the build will be raised to the first position in the list. We encourage you to reuse the same build over and over again for all the builds you upload with the same overall specifications (OS, optimization flags, branch, patches, etc) instead of creating a clone post for every new revision. This is a good practice for a number of reasons: it helps keep a cleaner and simpler list of builds in the index; the URL of your build remains the same so any external links will still work; your personal page will only contain relevant and up to date builds from you!
  • You have the ability to delete comments posted in your builds. Use this at your own discretion as part of your builds management
  • Keep your build's tittles as short and simple as possible, avoiding keywords that are already specified in the build tags like "Linux", "Trunk" or "32bits"
  • Remember to strip your builds, this process makes them lighter to upload and download
