Beta release 2.5.0-beta2

Postby JTN » Sat Nov 22, 2014 5:43 pm

The second beta of the next major version of Freeciv has been released.

Notable new features are a basically complete Qt client and the new 'fair island' map generator (ported from warserver).

To see what else has changed in the four months or so since beta1, see the full list of changes. For a reminder of what's new in 2.5.x relative to 2.4.x, see NEWS-2.5.0.

Source code is available here. Compiled Windows packages aren't available yet, but should follow shortly; we'll post again here when they turn up.

We hope that the next build can be a release candidate. Please report any bugs you find.

The Windows release builds are now up.

The experimental Windows build of the Qt client is available here for testing.

(Also, one notable bug already found in beta2: with the new 'fair island' map generator, generated resources can be ineffective until the game is saved and reloaded. gna #22981)
