[Sugar-devel] Fedora 15 SoaS release and Csound5

I presume you received the messages immediately listed below, regarding a 
solution to the old/new Csound parser issue ("build csound with the scons 
option  buildRelease=1").

If you sent questions either to this group, or the Csound-developers list, 
I'm sorry; I didn't receive them. Are they perhaps answered in the messages 
quoted below?

Also, as I wrote to you a week or so ago, there are no current MIDI issues 
with Csound and Sugar. (I had mistakenly thought there were earlier.)

I remain eager to test a rebuilt Csound in the Fedora 15 SoaS context, to 
determine if my activities are compatible - and look forward to your 
upcoming test release.

Thanks again for all your work on behalf of things musical within SoaS.

(Message to csound development listserv)

Steve, Victor and Peter Robinson:

The run-time (CsOptions) flag --old-parser makes my CSD's run flawlessly. 
(Thanks for the suggestion/solution, Steve.)

I don't imagine my CSD's are the only ones affected.

Peter, I'd strongly recommend Victor's suggestion of incorporating the scons 
option buildRelease=1 into the Csound build for Fedora 15. (For one thing, 
it would for the time being not require changes to my Activities.)

Comments anyone?

  That is a run-time option. But if you build csound with the scons  option 
buildRelease=1, the old parser
  should be the default. This is the recommended (new parser is no ready for 
big time yet).
