Build 19 first Snow Feature Freeze now in place

It is getting colder...

Widelands build 19 first snow feature freeze is now in place. What does that mean? It means that we will only change translations and graphics for the foreseeable future - no new features. We will fix outstanding targeted bugs and newly found critical bugs, but the current development version is pretty much what Widelands Build 19 will look like.

What happens next?

According to the Release Documentation, we will fix the remaining bugs and roughly two weeks after this, we will declare winter time feature freeze. This is to give you (the community) some more time to catch up with translations and provide some new graphics. Roughly one week after the winter time feature freeze, we will provide you all with the first release candidate for even more testing.

What does that mean for me?

You have only a few more weeks to update the translations for Widelands Build18. Head over to Transifex (instructions can be found in our wiki) and add the missing translations for your language! And play the current development version as much as you can and report bugs. Build 19 should be a rock solid release like all the others before it. Let's make it so.

I believe the players will greatly benefit from this new release face-smile.png


Oh wow! Finally - we made it :). Thanks for putting first snow in place.


Yes! That's what we needed! face-smile.png


Welcome news indeed ... I was scared to ask, but so finger twiddlingly fidgety waiting. Can't wait to try the new build.


The main release blocker right now is handling buggy graphics cards drivers face-sad.png


Yes, that is really annoying... and only Intel graphics on Windows...


Not quite... ATI on Linux can also be a problem.
