The repository also contains binaries for Windows and Linux. Binaries are stored by OS, in bin/x86-nt/ and bin/x86-linux/.
./autogen.sh && make && make install
Optionally you can use options to pass to autogen, for example
You should do your development underCygwin since the makefiles are autobuild-oriented. Be sure to download the developer and mingw components. You want to compile with mingw since this will give you Windows-native binaries and will therefore be portable from computer to computer.
aclocal && autoheader && automake --add-missing --copy && autoconf ./configure --enable-mingw CFLAGS="-g -Wall -O0" CXXFLAGS="-g -Wall -O0" make && make install
Insure that binaries are created on both Linux and Windows platforms.
If you're working on a filesystem shared by linux and windows then you can skip the middle commit and update steps.
There has not been an official release of the toolkit since the one put out by Cambridge. We intend to make one very soon. Since the toolkit itself has not been fundamentally updated aside from the 32-bit word ID change, this can be considered version 2.1 of the toolkit. Nonetheless, there will be many significant updates:
Successive releases will contain more fundamental changes to the toolkit. Mainly, we intend to add support for modified Kneser-Ney smoothing.
