Post by Viliam »

here are the web pages for versions 1.0 and 1.2
http://www.wesnoth.org/start/1.0/
http://www.wesnoth.org/start/1.2/
shall we have a similar page for version 1.4? I hope someone (native English speaker) will produce the text; but we all can help collect the information. So what is new in the game, compared with version 1.2? Feel free to add anything that you consider important.


GAME
* "Game Settings" dialog
* new portraits
* new music
* a lot of bug fixes
* new WML commands

CAMPAIGNS
* new campaigns: Descent into Darkness, Liberty, Northern Rebirth, Sceptre of Fire, An Orcish Incursion, The Hammer of Thursagan

* new scenarios for old campaigns

The template and I18N infrastructure are ready, we just need someone to create the "real" content of the release notes.

EDIT: Btw, screenshots and videos are also welcome.

At FOSDEM we also had a brainstorming about what should at least be mentioned in the announcement. Though this list is not very complete. For example is the removal of the ability to directly "host networked game" not existent anymore, now users to have to start the mp server in background.

Have a look at the attached photo for some ideas we had in our brainstorming (yes, it is not a 100% complete list).

In that blackboard photo, is it just me or do Mordante's ears look rather elven?
