Upcoming (2.71rc2) and next release (2.71rc3)

Added by IR4T4 almost 6 years ago

Some of you may have noticed we are preparing the new release ET:L 2.71rc2. We’ll update our game server (etlegacy.com:27960) regularly the next weeks and I think we’ll also have some games here and there.
Any feedback is appreciated! ... but I think this is no news

From my point of view we walked 1000 miles talking about new features and bug fixes - see: 2.71rc2 and changelog

We did moved existing issues we would like to see in the next release to our new milestone: 2.71rc3
Let us know (here) if we miss any important issues to move.

@package and OS maintainers:
Please contact devs of the core team to put the mod binaries on the server as well.

Can we expect SDL2 in final 2.71 or is it scheduled to 2.72 version?

Afaik, SDL2 is scheduled for 2.72 since it is a major change over SDL1.2

When we get a hold of Harlekin. I haven’t seen him in some time, but hopefully he shows up on IRC soon.

Neither. SDL 2 is a major upgrade. Changes ported from ioquake3 fixed a lot of things in input processing and mouse handling. It is definitely not ready for stable release though. We would like to release stable 2.71 ASAP. After that we will work on 2.72 which will introduce Auth system. This should be done by the end of January. There will probably be one more maintenance release after that - 2.73 - and then we’ll merge sdl2 into master and start making it ready for 2.80 together with the new renderer. This jump in version number should tell you how big step it is. I don’t expect to elevate version to 2.90 until SDL 3 port is done

Btw, that’s why I believe having an open source Win installer would be great: anybody could update it to the last release.

Yeah, I agree SDL2 is a big step forward.

Keep up the good work!

the git version of sdl2 branch is already very playable and is definitely better than sdl1 one right now.

We could add the SDL2 client executable as an optional component to the Windows 2.71rc4 installer. They could be installed side by side and SDL2 could be marked as experimental.
