Beta release 3.0.0-beta3

Postby cazfi » Fri Oct 08, 2021 1:48 pm

The third beta for the next major version of Freeciv, 3.0.0-beta3, has just been released.

The changes since beta2 are mainly bugfixes (full list). Beta3 is expected to be the last beta before stable 3.0.0 release.

Major 3.0.x features are civ2civ3 being the default ruleset, addition of the alien ruleset, hex maps as the default topology on new installations, and a whole lot of extra flexibility to create custom rulesets. See the summary of changes since 2.6.x.

Source code is available here. Compiled Windows packages aren't available yet, but are expected during the weekend.

Please report bugs you find on our bug tracker at osdn (rather than on this forum) so we don't lose track of them.

Windows packages have now been uploaded. It may still take a couple of minutes for Sourceforge to start serving them out.
