Wesnoth 1.4.1 is out!
This is a bugfix release for 1.4 and it is compatible with the other 1.4 versions.
The major change in 1.4.1 is the rewrite of the multiplayer server to make it faster while using less resources. Beside this caching of maps in the multiplayer lobby was added, so that speed in there should be a lot better on the (crowded) official server. 1.4.1 features some other smaller bug fixes and many spelling mistake fixes. Most translations were updated, resulting in the game now being completely translated to German and almost completely to Swedish. Of course there is also the full changelog
listing (almost) all the changes since 1.4. A changelog with changes that might be visible to most users (and only includes these) is the players changelog

If you encounter any problems with content from the add-on server not working as expected, please notify the content's author, most of them should be here in the forums.

Such questions just distract the developers and packagers and don't do any good, so better not ask them...
