Subject Re: [windows1] Pixelbender installation
Date Fri, 13 Dec 2013 07:19:53 GMT
We just pushed changes to put all the pixel bender stuff in its own
upstream package that won't be built by Jenkins (because it rarely
changes).  Theoretically, this eliminates the need for the Flex build to
need a window.  We'll see how the next builds come out.

Thank you for trying to fix this.  Creating the upstream package isn't
just a workaround for this issue, it also gives us a more consistent build
experience for our Linux users as the PixelBender compiler does not work
on Linux.

Hopefully the builds will start to work now, but I won't be surprised if
there is some other issue waiting to be discovered.

Thanks,
-Alex
