Post by miyo »

Elen síla lúmenn' omentielvo.

We had crafted 0.7.4 but ftp troubles prevented us releasing, while we were playing with 0.7.4 we found serious bugs and therefore 0.7.4 never got officially released.

Changes since 0.7.3: Many bug fixes.Lizardmen have joined Northeners. AI improvements, 9th player and unlimited turns support in multiplayer. Translation updates: catalan, french, italian.Graphics improvements, scenario and unit balancing, map editor improvements - check it all at http://changelog.wesnoth.org

Contribute and enhance GettingStarted and AdvancedTactics in our Wiki, these can be reached thru http://wiki.wesnoth.org

Source tarball, md5sum and u$win binary can be found here:

there is something wrong with the md5sum file :
http://www.wesnoth.org/files/wesnoth-0.7.5.tar.gz.md5 does not exist
it is http://www.wesnoth.org/files/wesnoth-0. ... .gz.md5.gz that is on the server

I have just verified that md5sum is valid, there is something wrong with web server. We will contact service provider. Thank you for informing us.

edit: I can get it right with wget, lynx, links and Konqueror. Mozilla, Firefox, Galeon and Epiphany (all Gecko based browsers) seem to fail getting it right.It might be browser bug in some browsers after all.

Ok. Let me explain.
I downloaded wesnoth-0.7.5.tar.gz.
I tried getting the md5sum file but firefox said the file wesnoth-0.7.5.tar.gz.md5 didn't exist.
So I opened http://www.wesnoth.org/files/ with lynx and downloaded the file, it was saved with the name wesnoth-0.7.5.tar.gz.md5.gz. I checked the md5sum too and it was ok with wesnoth-0.7.5.tar.gz.
After I downloaded again the wesnoth tarball archive, it saved it with name wesnoth-1.7.5.tar.gz ! It incremented the wesnoth version all alone :)
So I think you are right, this must be some kind of bug with firefox/mozilla.

It seems like the binary of 0.7.5 for Windows is corrupted, at least it's impossible to get a working one for a friend using Internet Explorer.
UPDATE: the file itself is ok, IE is just getting only 18mb. I got it using prozilla from linux on a smb mount. Now it's running but I guess most people won't have a linux machine in a lan. ;-)

Huh? I have Windows/IE and I've already played through three levels using 075.

It works fine for me. File size should be 20888538 bytes.

Can you get it right by using some other browser? e.g. Mozilla, Firefox or K-Meleon? Those are freely available for u$win

http://www.mozilla.org
http://texturizer.net/firefox
http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/

What about different proxy settings? Which internet service provider?

This can help us isolate the problem... maybe it is just IE behaving badly (again) or some ISP proxy configured bad (yet another of those).

Btw can we allow our users to download the files via ftp? That might be more reliable than http...

By the way, the MacOSX version is now up, despite FTP glitches :D

Excellent! I'd hug you, but I understand that in the UK men don't hug.
