Stable release 2.5.0

18 months to the day after 2.4.0, and representing over three years of development, the next major version of Freeciv, 2.5.0, has been released.

See NEWS-2.5.0 for details of what's changed since the last stable release line, 2.4.x.

For those who tried the betas and release candidates, there's a short list of changes since RC2 (translations and graphics).

Source code is available here. Compiled Windows packages for 2.5.0 aren't available yet, but should follow shortly; in the meantime, the 2.5.0-RC2 packages are still available and almost as good.

(While 2.5 is now the main stable version, we do expect to make a final 2.4.5 release at some point, mopping up bug fixes that have been made since 2.4.4 was released.)

Windows packages are now up; thanks to Christian Prochaska for the quick turnaround.

Is this version the RC2 one? I noticed a release of RC2 a week earlier than this one. But on the Wiki there is no mention of RC2.

Since 2.5.0 RC2 had no serious bug, 2.5.0 (this version) could be released. RCs are "beta" versions (so the code is not only tested by developers), and this is a stable one.

So this release -2.5.0- is more complete than RC1 or RC2 ain't it?
I'm I up grading to 2.5.0 is an improvement from RC1 or RC2?
I thought "RC" meant 'Read Comically" (he! he!)

2.5.0 is almost the same as RC2 was. In the end of http://freeciv.wikia.com/wiki/NEWS-2.5.0 there's section "What's changed since 2.5.0-RC2"

It is possible by building a migrant (that require 1 population), instead of a settler.
