Wesnoth 1.8.2

Post by ivanovic »

Wesnoth 1.8.2 is out!
This is a bugfix release for the 1.8.x series and it is compatible with the other 1.8.x versions.

This release does fix many smaller bugs including some crashes. There is no huge improvement in the multiplayer lobby, but many campaigns received some updates to fix the issues that appeared in the last weeks. The most noteworthy change is probably that all unit images in Under the Burning Suns should be displayed correctly again. Beside this a music piece was replaced by an improved version. Of course some graphics and translations were updated, too.

Of course there is also the full changelog listing (almost) all the changes since 1.8.1. A changelog with changes that might be visible to most users (and only includes these) is the players changelog.

The Windows package is already available. You can find it on the download page.

The MacOSX package is already available. You can find it on the download page.

Many of the Linux packages have already been created. All known packagers have been contacted. Information about where to get the respective binaries or how to get them work you get on the Linux binaries site for the Linux binaries. Download links for the other supported systems will be listed at the downloads page once the binaries are available.

As a fallback you can also get the sources from http://files.wesnoth.org/ - you should first try to get files through SourceForge to help us save bandwidth. Please get the files from sourceforge.net if possible.

The multiplayer server for 1.8.x is already up and running. This server can be used to play with 1.7.14, 1.7.15 and all 1.8.x versions. Older versions are no longer supported. If you do encounter problems, please report them.

A new add-on server was started when 1.7.8-beta1 was released. All content uploaded to this new server should be compatible with the following 1.7.x beta releases, release candidates for 1.8, as well as the final 1.8.x series. If you encounter any problems with content from the add-on server not working as expected, please notify the content's author, most of them should be here in the forums.

If you find any bugs don't hesitate to report them, but please read the instructions on how to post bugs first. Instructions for bug reporting can be found at http://www.wesnoth.org/wiki/ReportingBugs.

Enjoy!

PS: Within the next seven days anyone asking when the binary for xyz will be ready will be banned and the post will be deleted. Such questions just distract the developers and packagers and don't do any good, so better not ask them...
Bugreports in the forums tend to get forgotten. You will get better results by following the guidelines and report them in the bugtracker.

Yeah, but since it's just a changelog most people won't notice a difference. ;)

Hey, new player here. Just started since 1.8.1. What's the procedure for updating? Just download and run, or what?

Thanks

PS. Love the game, by the way. I've recruited like 6 people in the last weeks since I started.

Installing is fine, it just goes in a separate folder. If you're like me and use the dev version as well, at some point you realize you have 4+ gigs of wesnoth installs that you never really use. Feel free to uninstall the old ones at any time, but if you store your userdata in the program files folder you should transfer relevant files to the new one to keep your data.
