Very similar to other versions of Inform 7, but in the interest of consistency and clarity this is being made separate.

What works

Installation works fine. After installation, following the steps outlined in other versions lets you start up the program fine, as well:
- Install riched20.dll through some method (such as winetricks)
- Use a hex editor (such as KHexEdit) to change any instances of "richedit50" (case insensitive) to "richedit20".
- Install some form of Internet Explorer in Wine.

Creating a new project works, as does all the normal text editing. Compiling, running, and saving projects works. Exporting games for release also works.

The Skein, Index, and Transcript features all work as expected

The built-in documentation works but is very slow.

What does not

Loading saved projects does not work. If you attempt to load a saved project, the program will throw a fatal error dialog and close.

This can be partially worked around by starting a new project, opening the source text of the saved project in a text editor, and then pasting that text into Inform 7.


What was not tested

Nothing, to the best of my knowledge.
