I propose adding a description for building older versions of blender in manual.
Please tell me your opinion.
- Blender Wiki does not mention the existence of an older version of the svn repository.
I tried to build an older version of blender to investigate an old bug, but I couldn’t because of the different version of libarary. Fortunately, I found out about the existence of version-specific svn repositories in this thread.
I first learned about the existence of the
tags/ directory in this thread. I’m sure there are other people who don’t know about this directory.
In addition, it would be good to describe how to build older versions for those who want to investigate blender lts.
I think it would be good to add a sentence in Building Blender section of the Blender Wiki (Building Blender - Blender Developer Wiki) to inform people about the existence of the svn tags directory.
# How to get library for building older versions of blender svn checkout https://svn.blender.org/svnroot/bf-blender/tags/blender-2.83-release/lib/win64_vc15/
How is my proposal?
