There was recently a build-21 map overhaul,

(It's still in progress, the PR is not merged yet)

now bugs.. Are there some decisions on build-21, or are we just becoming impatient?

There are currently 161 open issues and PRs targeted to b21 (https://github.com/widelands/widelands/milestone/1), so it's still some time off. However in my opinion there have been so many new features that IMHO we should consider making the release as soon as all the critical bugs are fixed (which will still take some time though).

I agree.

In the collectors mode, unexperienced players don't know what the match is about. Reason: There is no more message at the beginning of the match about the wares, it appears only after 60 minutes. There should be a message at the beginning of the match, but definitely no popup.

Regression bug: Economy settings of Atlantean Blackroot Flour are missing, spotted in Amazons6762

they were removed due to being consistent with e.g. empire wine. see https://github.com/widelands/widelands/pull/3682

It's bad, because mills can waste time for superflouus black flower now. Imperial wine is a different story, because the whinery only produces one type of ware.

It should not waste time as it should only do blackrootflour if it is needed or no cornflour is needed. so if cornflour needed and no blackrootflour it will do blackroot.

Yes, especially because some new features already introduced new bugs...

Some one should just declare the feature freeze... I'd vote for it face-smile.png

Way too soon now!! face-wink.png
There are a bunch of bugs in current master that could be real showstoppers, e.g. the shipping bugs I'm currently working on (yes the branch is still far from ready face-wink.png ). Also all PRs now open should be merged for b21.

But we could already go through the list of issues targeted to the active milestone and postpone all feature requests and minor bugs that don't urgently need to be taken care of for b21.
I'll open a b22-rc1 milestone for those, and create a label "Urgent" for all issues that really need to go into b21. (edit: done)

I did some cleaning up on the milestone, now only 17 urgent bugs left of which 6 already have an open PR.
Of course any dev who wants to fix a retargeted issue for b21 is still welcome to do so face-smile.png

Edit: All bugs really intended to be fixed for b21 should be marked with the "urgent" label. Those targeted to b21 without this label haven't been decided on yet.

If any of the open PRs need testing I'm happy to give them a whirl.

It would be good if you could test the tribes filtering branch: https://github.com/widelands/widelands/pull/3693
The PR has been open for two months now and nobody found time for it yet. If you test it, I'll do the code review and we might have it for b21.

I am working on both in a branch that will also fix some other urgent shipping-related issues. But just to clarify I gave them (and another related issue) the urgent label now anyway.
