/BriefCase Rel_3_5-beta3* releases consist of a tar file of a complete
/BriefCase distribution. This release fixes some subtle bugs, as well as
some less-subtle user-reported problems, and contains some enhancements
to the /BriefCase self-test scripts located in the /BriefCase/testing
Specific problems fixed in Rel_3_5-beta3 include:
- Housekeeping: some /BriefCase commands failed to remove certain work
files or directories from the remote and/or local /Stage area(s). These
scripts have been fixed, and a facility to test for lingering /Stage
files has been added to the /BriefCase/testing suite.
- Under some conditions, some commands failed to populate create proper
/Stage directories. These scripts have been fixed by adding "ntree"
commands (which create the /Stage directories), where appropriate.
- Korn Shell dependencies have been eliminated
- New & improved self-test scripts include: t_DOSfmt, t_stage, t_misc,
- as well as a number of fixes for problems reported by users - MANY
thanks to them for their patience!
The [ReleaseName].tar file contains the files:
Extracting the .tgz file creates a subdirectory named
./[ReleaseName], which contains the complete /BriefCase directory

INSTALLATION NOTE: the BCconfig file in this distribution is the default
BCconfig file for a /BriefCase server system. If you are upgrading
from a previous release of /BriefCase, copy the BCconfig file from the
working /BriefCase directory into the ./[ReleaseName] directory.
One script file, /BriefCase/ncoall, has been "deprecated" (due to some
complaints about its being deleted in the CYGWIN distribution), so if
you plan to copy this distribution to a Windows client, you will need to
remove or rename ncoall to avoid a (Windows) namespace collision between
"ncoall" and the improved "ncoAll" script before copying (the underlying
Windows OS does not differentiate between upper and lower case letters
