Thanks for your patience and now enjoy the brand new release. This time we do have real release notes
that are even translated into many different languages. A lot of info is listed in there, just have a look at it. If this is not enough for you, there even is a full changelog
listing all the changes since 1.6. A changelog with changes that might be visible to most users (and only includes these) is the players changelog
. Though for most it is enough to just have a look at the release notes
, the most important aspects are listed in there.Downloads

The multiplayer server for 1.8.x is already up and running. This server can be used to play with 1.7.14, 1.7.15 and all 1.8.x versions. Older versions are no longer supported. If you do encounter problems, please report them
A new add-on server was started when 1.7.8-beta1 was released. All content uploaded to this new server should be compatible with the following 1.7.x beta releases, release candidates for 1.8, as well as the final 1.8.x series. 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.
If you find any bugs don't hesitate to report them, but please read the instructions on how to post bugs first. Instructions for bug reporting can be found at http://www.wesnoth.org/wiki/ReportingBugs
PS: Within the next seven days anyone asking when the binary for xyz will be ready will be banned and the post will be deleted.
Such questions just distract the developers and packagers and don't do any good, so better not ask them...
Bugreports in the forums tend to get forgotten. You will get better results by following the guidelines
and report them in the bugtracker
