My-T-Soft released for Raspberry Pi

One of the key things that went into the design of the My-T-Soft run-time 2.x software was to support cross platform deployment, and due to the nature of Linux, the operating system has been ported to all types of architectures and systems. So when we were asked to be involved and incorporate My-T-Soft into a Raspberry Pi project, it made sense to compile and target the raspbian version (a modified version of Debian Linux that is optimized and runs on the Raspberry Pi). As we typically do with any new release, it is now available for Download at the My-T-Soft for Linux Downloads page.

One thing of note - for images, the current default PNG library on the latest raspbian is version 16, while the current build targets the older version 12. The PNG lib 12 is available on the Pi, so if using images with My-T-Soft, you will want to redo the symbolic link to the 12 version vs. the default 16. For further information on image support and the PNG libraries in Linux, see the Help page here.

As is typical with the My-T-Soft family, development moves forward in various steps, and some of the new features required for this project will roll into the main released software for all currently supported platforms. Stay tuned for exciting and interesting features in My-T-Soft!
