I thought I was making the players wait too long, nearly 10 months for the next major release. Things have been admittedly slow so I figured i'll release what's done so far. This is not the fabled version 0.8.0, but it is a nice prelude to it. Smiley

Significant Changes:

Changes:

- New player model : Assassin. This guy kills for greed.
- New player model : Space Marine. This guy serves his Corps. In SPACE.
- New player skin : Angelyss/Neko. Mew!!!!!! :3
- New player skin : Grism/Indigo. A homage of that other game.
- Ayumi/Neko, Angelyss/Sly have been atticed due to quality reasons.
- Text font (bigchars.tga) used by console and hud messages now doesn't bleed anymore.
- Special characters added for text font (bigchars.tga) used by some mods. If you've ever encountered a "?" where it shouldn't be in a mod, this should really fix it
- lots of maps and changed maps, at least 8 new significant maps to play! This includes the  reworked oa_dm3 and oa_dm5.
- oa_ctf2 is more balanced, slightly retextured.
- Elimination and CTF elimination game types. No one respawns until the round is over.
- Double domination game type. Two teams must control two points on the map for 10 seconds to score.
- Last Man Standing game type. The name of the game is self explanatory.
- Instant Gib option, gives everyone only a railgun that does kills instantly.
- All Rockets option, makes everyone only have a rocket launcher.
- Alt-tab working.
- Unlagged tracehits option, provides a more responsive feel for railguns, machineguns and shotguns.
- Classic Grism aren't teamskins anymore. This means the 'white' skin will not show up during team games. In addition, the skins can be used for FFA again.
- Completely in SDL.
- BFG BFG BFG BFG
- A lot of other stuff we forgot like minor polishings. There's lots of it and too many to mention here.


Releases can be found on the FILES page.

Mac version is coming soon!

Even though it is only a point release, the pak files and binaries have all had changes made, so the release files are entirely different from the previous version.  A full refresh is required.

If you're not itching horribly to try the new version, you might want to wait a couple of days for the Ubuntu maintainer to push the new version out.  You can file a bug report against the Ubuntu package if you think the maintainer might not be aware of the new version.

are there any known compatibility problems with the new version vs the old one (which most servers are running right now)?
i noticed one server wanted me to download pak6-misc yet i already have one in the baseoa folder. just kinda wondering what sort of breakage this may cause.
honestly with all of the changes there probably should have been a protocol number change just so potential incompatibilities cannot happen.

also, where should we report bugs?  here or the development forum?
ive already noticed a few including the sdl mouse stutter bug in windows (after 2 or so rounds) and you have to reset stuff in order to get the new maps to show up for some reason.

edit: nevermind about the resetting stuff requirement, found i had some duplicate pak files from my old install in the documents and settings openarena folder for some reason. i also noticed some maps are missing textures, like maps with lava.  might just be me though.

because the zip was finalized and was already mirrored and I didn't want to upload another and make them mirror again. It'd be a MD5sum nightmare.
