Ok, yes, that's what it does look like at the moment. I didn't remember that there has been no official release builds of gtk3-client for you to compare to.

The fixes made since S2_6 based build have been specific to TRUNK (i.e., fixed things that prevented me from making trunk build available at the same time as S2_6 build)


I just tested this build on Windows 10. The client crashes when I click the Pick nation button in pregame.

Current S2_6 client is known to give wrong game saving path to the server. This is not msys2 based build specific problem, but probably affects this build too.
More information on bug #24768

These previous builds should have msys2 specific problems of missing icon theme and disabled nls (translations) support solved already.

Anyway, I hope to get new builds made today from the current freeciv branch heads. I've been working on to get msys2 environment used as the base updated, but that update will not be used yet today. Don't get fooled by the fact that version number of the new environment indicates it to be based on msys2 as it was 18th of June and today is a later date. Version number does not tell when the environment was (will be) taken to use, but when it was frozen.

Now there's also 'win64' version, in addition to 'win32', of this build. This is first time such win64 build of freeciv has been published.

New S2_6 builds available from r33261: http://download.gna.org/freeciv/package ... ha+r33261/

- The network protocol of S2_6 is now expected to get no further functional changes - it's sort of Release Candidate. This does not mean it's compatible with final protocol, but the very act of declaring protocol stable will break the compatibility with older unstable protocol.
- h1.jasminek.net public S2_6 test servers are updated to a revision compatible with these builds
