    Hi all,

    In recognition of the fact that many people use and integrate with C-Gate in myriad ways on different platforms, it is now available as a separate zip distribution.

    The downloads pages will be updated at a later date, but for now you can get the first such distribution here.

    It has absolutely no functional difference to the C-Gate already included in the latest Windows installer for C-Bus Toolkit 1.13.0.

    There are however some differences between the zip distribution and the typical Windows installation of C-Gate:

    1. A private JRE is not included. It is up to you to provide a Java Runtime Environment on the system.
    2. C-Gate is not installed as a service or daemon. It is up to you to configure C-Gate to launch as and when desired.
    3. A simple cgate.sh launcher is included to launch from a Linux shell.
    4. Windows USB drivers are not included. For first-time Windows installations you should use the C-Bus Toolkit installer.
    5. Built-in support for serial ports on Java 32-bit for Windows, Linux and Mac OSX. Note that you can install a 32-bit Java on a 64-bit operating system.
    6. Built-in support for serial ports on Java 64-bit for Linux.
    7. Configurable support for serial ports on Java for Windows 64-bit and Java for MacOS X 64-bit by moving and renaming files (see \lib\serial-readme.txt).

    Please don't contact Technical Support for problems with this distribution. You will need to be familiar with your target OS, with platform scripting and with executing Java applications. Please leave feedback and comments here in this thread!

    Happy Holidays :)
