Topic: SNAPCRAFT : a solution to develop for Linux
Dear RME developers,
in a couple of days, the new Long Time Support 16.04 of Ubuntu will be released.
With this new release, Canonical (the company behind Ubuntu) brings a new technology for developers: the 'snappy packaging'.
Look at this:
The 'snappy packaging' could allow RME developers to provide drivers the way they do on Windows:
an executable binary file packaged with ALL THE DEPENDENCIES needed to run the software out-of-the-box, regardless of what for libraries and what for OS version are installed.
This way, RME could provide full driver support for Linux and the proprietary code could remain as close as you want.
Porting your applications to the Qt framework and your done to compile for Windows, Mac and Linux ;-)
Sounds like a dream?...
