Shoes 3.2.16 is available for download at a the usual places,
http://shoes.mvmanila.com/public/shoes/ and http://shoesrb.com/downloads/ .
We fixed a long standing bug in Windows where it hung when in the
background. (or if the system got busy ).
I've gotten my favorite packaging option working - download if
needed! It adds a small native code downloader in place of the entire
Shoes distribution. When run on the intended system it checks if Shoes
is already installed. If not then it downloads and installs Shoes. Then
it runs your script. It fast to package, easier to upload, easier to
download and its faster for the user. Much faster if they run it a
You can package from Windows, OSX, Linux (3 variations) for Windows, OSX
(mavericks and Yosemite both work) and Linux (3 variations). Most of you
won't try all 25 combinations but you could.
For extra benefits, the download url IS NOT hardcoded in those native
code downloaders so it can be changed easily if some other site wants or
needs to host the Shoes installs instead of me.
As always, my thanks to those who filed bugs reports at
https://github.com/shoes/shoes/issues and a H/T to Backorder who helped
me with the Windows issues. Follow Shoes 3.2 progress at it's blog,
