[Question #151876]: Problem Versions


New question #151876 on Yade:


I'm using Ubuntu 10.10 and Yade 0.60.

When I run Yade 0.60: 
"Welcome to Yade 0.60
TCP python prompt on localhost:9000, auth cookie `auedcs'
XMLRPC info provider on http://localhost:21000
[[ ^L clears screen, ^U kills line. F12 controller, F11 3d view, F10 both, F9 generator, F8 plot. ]]"

I'm a beginner in Linux and Yade. I'm following the tutorial but it's written
1.1.1 Starting Yade
"version (bzr1984); always state this version you use if you seek help in the community or report

And it's also written 
"A few minor bugs were discovered during the course. They were all fixed in rev. 2640 of Yade which is
therefore the minimum recommended version to run the examples (notably, 0.60 will not work)."
What does that mean ? 
If I'm using the 0.60, is it just useless 'cause it won't work ? 
I really don't understand how can I get recent versions.  I go to the front page of the website https://launchpad.net/yade, and I download yade-0.60.2.tar.bz2. But what do I have to do with that now ? I try to follow the steps written in the Install file... but it's really not easy, I mean it doesn't seem to be updated.

In the directory yade/.bzr/branch, the file last-revision it's written "2804 bruno.chareyre@xxxxxxxxxxx-20110405165841-1mlfpy9myjr0dcy3"... Is it the real last version ?

I tried to run "scons version=trunk PREFIX=/home/username/YADE optimize=1 features=gts,vtk,opengl,openmp,log4cxx

scons: *** No SConstruct file found.
File "/usr/lib/scons/SCons/Script/Main.py", line 834, in _main"

But the package scons is installed...

So my question is, I really don't understand how can I get the version 0.60.2 or the bzr2804 and what the difference between 0.60.2 and bzr2804?

Maybe I wasn't clear, but I'm really confused, thank you !
