Distribution contents

Resources in the distribution and resources available on shapechange.net

Earlier versions of ShapeChange included more resources in the distribution package. Most of these are now simply accessed from shapechange.net when needed. The main benefit is that improvements made to the central files are available to everyone immediately. This page describes both the resources in the distribution package and on shapechange.net.

If there is a need to run ShapeChange without internet connection, you can also download copies of the resources on shapechange.net and redirect the references in the configuration files to your local copies.

Content of the distribution package

The ShapeChange distribution package contains the following files and folders:
