Re: Freeciv-2.6 lifetime

With those earlier versions the final releases were made mostly for the benefit of longturn.net (don't know if they then actually used those releases, but they were the reason given for the releases anyway) as they were somewhat slow to adopt their servers to newer branches.

Freeciv-2.6 lifetime

There's certainly going to be freeciv-2.6.6 release, most likely around December/January with the goal of it making it to Ubuntu 22.04 LTS. I'm undecided what happens to freeciv-2.6 branch (S2_6) after that, and would like to hear your opinions for making the decision. Any potential 2.6.7 release wo...

Re: Development activity

Freeciv.org development is more open than the minimum required by open source licenses. Our development happens in a public repository - source for each and every revision of the project is available, not only source of the releases. Except certain emergency fixes our code changes are subject to a p...

Re: Playing campaigns

Edit 3: The exact same thing happens with the British Isles scenario. It has 5 tribes configured with 5 start positions yet as I start the scenario, it shows 5 players as "random", then at turn zero the English are up against the South Koreans and whatnot. Weird. I looked at that, and the...

Just at this moment my personal commit count for the previous 12 months is above one thousand (1001 exactly). That's one thousand new features and bugfixes. There might be a couple of commits where the bulk of the work has been made by someone else, and I've only ended up as being the committer. htt...

Re: Upcoming 3.0.0-beta3
