The brew formula was updated with 5.0.1 25 days ago.

Or you can just do
Code: Select all
brew install minetest
, it’s up to you. ;P


Well, what should I say... thank you for the suggestion, but the initial question was

Is there any way to get the current "official release version" 5.0.1 without (and that's the important part of the question) this homebrew-stuff?


Nobody really answered that question, so I guess the answer is just plain "No". But thank you all for your suggestions! Let's see about this macports-stuff on my new machine...

Sorry, I overlooked the requirements. Why anyone would use macports when homebrew exists is beyond me since it’s basically the same thing, but I won’t judge.

The problem with MT for Mac is that an official release channel doesn’t exist for this platform. But like I said before, why not just download the readymade build from Neoascetic that matches the git commit of 5.0.1 in this case?

FOSS starts with "Free" and one should have the liberty of choice.

MacPorts and Homebrew as well as Fink are similar efforts and are optionial. One may consider MacPorts vs Homebrew or other discussions before chosing just either of these or none.

@texmex: Please, could you just provide a link for the download as mentioned by you?

IMHO the a.m. git commit of 5.0.1 in this case may not be easily found. A brief scan of the builds from Neoascetic only gave 5.1.0-dev variants around 2019-03-31 but I would be happy to be proven wrong.

I second this emotion. I keep my Macs as stock as possible and don't want to install any of these platforms. I just want to find the stable compiled .app file for 5.0.1. I don't know why this has been this way for so long. The Devs do really wonderful work and I LOVE Minetest. I'm spinning up an ubuntu server right now to replace my old instance and I need new clients for my daughters' computers. Can someone make this happen and post a link here? My kids and I thank you in advance.

There's really no reason for MT devs not to provide official builds already since neoascetic has shown how to automate it (without Apple hardware at hand).

Here you go, the official Homebrew 5.0.1 version for direct download:
