"Setup 1.0 is an graphic installer utitilty with which a developer can create a simple, easy-to-use standardized install routine. It uses an XML description file to describe a package, and provides both a console and a GTk front-end to install it. The install process even creates an uninstall script in the install directory which can be run when the user wants to uninstall the product. Loki has included x86, PPC, Alpha, and Sparc binaries for this version of the installer."

"Loki developed Setup 1.0 in the course of porting Railroad Tycoon II: Gold Edition by PopTop Software and Gathering of Developers.
