Compatibility

All Gambas 3.x versions will be backward-compatible, i.e. a program written in Gambas 3.x version will be able to run unchanged with any Gambas 3.y version, provided that y > x.

But the contrary is false! a program written with a specific Gambas 3.x version will not run with an older version.

Compilation and installation

Read the instructions there.

If everything was fine, type "gambas3" to run the development environment.

Enjoy it !
