Welcome to the SharpE shell wiki. This wiki aims to provide an invaluable resource for various aspects of SharpE usage and development. It's still very much work in progress, and we hope for it to evolve over time so that it becomes more useful, for everyone involved. Check out the wiki guide page for more on how you can help with this.

Get SharpE!

Download the latest Testing Day release (TD6). Having any problems with this release? Try posting to the forums or check out the IRC channel (#sharpe on irc.freenode.net) for some help.

There are two other versions of SharpE available; CVS6 (no longer supported, but available for our Win9x users), and the nightly binary build, which can be accessed via SVN from the address /sharpe with any SVN client. Please note: If you download the Testing Day release, it is possible many issues from it have been fixed in the nightly binary, however the nightly binary should only be used by advanced users.


You can help SharpE improve by reporting any bugs you find, although don't forget to check out known issues first. The SharpE team also holds regular testing days on IRC to help squish bugs as soon as possible in the latest releases of the shell. Details of the next testing day coming soon and more information on beta testing is available here.
