Build 20 Release Candidate 1

We are glad to announce that Build 20 Release Candidate 1 is now ready for download. There is a known issue with the Mac builds where sounds won't play. We will look into that for the final release.

I'm looking forward to see more players in the multiplayer lobby, because anyone can host matches with this version. Port forwarding isn't necessary anymore face-smile.png


Really?! Perfect! It sounds really perfect! face-smile.png




Congratulations all Widelands community! GunChleoc: you're doing great job! Another step forward.


The release candidate has been picked up on LinuxFR: (in French).


Good article face-smile.png


It is interesting to see that the 32bit-Windows version accounts for roughly 80% of the downloads.


For example some Debian Linux users don't have to download the RC there. They can also just take the new widelands-ppa and install the game with the help of the console...


Of course. What I tried to emphasize was that so many people still use a 32 bit Windows. Although we didn't provide an installer for buil19.


I am pretty sure that this is not the case. 64 bit windows machines 32 bit software just fine. And even with Widelands targeting perhaps older machines, most likely more than 20% are running 64bit Windows but are not aware of that and therefore download 32bit...


Fyi: => Less than 1% Windows 32bit users.

Again, the audience of Widelands most likely differ and uses older hardware but even our binaries require Win 7 and newer (no XP support ).


What a great achievement! Great work, team!
