Wesnoth 1.3.19 is out!
This is the second release candidate for 1.4. It is very likely that this is the last release candidate for 1.4 and that the final 1.4 release will be out very soon. Expect 1.4 by the beginning of march 2008.
The most notable change for this release is the new build method for the Windows binary. The compiler was updated which might lead to some strange problems. If you experience any new problems with the windows binary, don't hesitate to report them. Of course it would be nice to get positive feedback if things work as expected.
Beside this the most noticeable change is probably that we now show an overlay in the editor to mark the half hexes, that are not accessible ingame. This allows content creators to get a better idea of how the map will really look like.
When compiling with the "lowmem" option, there are no more animations shown with this release. This should reduce the amount of memory used by several MB. If you don't have to use this option because otherwise the game would not work at all, do not use it.
This release does not have many changes beside those mentioned above. If you want to see a rather complete list (not 100% complete, some devs tend to forget adding entries) have a look at the changelog
. A changelog with the changes that might be visible to most users (and only includes these) is the players_changelog

As a fallback you can also get the sources from http://files.wesnoth.org/
- you should first try to get files through SourceForge to help us save bandwidth.
The multiplayer server for 1.3.19 is already up and running. In fact it is exactly the same server as for 1.3.18 and you should experience no problems when playing with 1.3.18 users and watching their replays. If you do encounter problems, please report them
By now the add-on server already offers some content that should be completely compatible with 1.3.18, 1.3.19 and the upcoming 1.4. If you encounter any problems with content not working as expected, please notice 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: Bugreports in the forums tend to get forgotten. So better follow the guidelines
and report them in the bugtracker
