RE: [celtix-dev] downloading the celtix


Ray/Wolfgang, If you could verify the download issue with latest version of 
firefox as peter suggested that would be really appreciated.
The reason for shipping tgz files was that format seem to work consistently 
on both unix and windows platforms.

Looks like some of the firefox browser issues are creating problems with 
downloading and saving tgz files on windows.
Did anybody else notice this problem using other browsers on windows?

We will try and consider shipping a zip format to make windows users life 
easier in next milestone.
Our goal is to try and make usage of celtix as much easy and straight forward 
as possible for Celtix users.

Currently celtix doesnt have any plans for providing an installer. we will 
try consider this in future. 
If anybody is willing to contribute installer support to celtix please dont 
hesitate to let us know. We certainly appreciate some community help towards 
this.

regards,
Adi
