Thank you all for your many contributions, bug reports, comments, and patience. We hope you’ll enjoy this first release of the new stable series!
This time we have real release notes translated into many different languages. The most significant changes since Wesnoth 1.8 are listed and summarized there; go and have a look at them! If this is not enough for you, there is also a detailed full changelog listing all the changes, and a more concise players changelog including only those that concern the average player.
It is possible to use your savegames from the 1.9.x series with 1.10.x too. You just have to copy the 1.9.x userdata folder to the location of your 1.10.x userdata.
Known Issues (might be fixed in the next release(s))
- If you are using Linux, FreeBSD, or other X11-based platforms and building from source, you’ll most likely want to apply this patch. It fixes an issue (bug #19318) causing the wrong path to be used for your user preferences directory. This patch is only relevant if you are using the source tarball and rely on the default layout; that is, haven’t overridden the preferences path at compile time. All known packagers were notified of the issue and if you rely on precompiled binaries this fix should already be included with them (e.g. Debian and Gentoo already use this patch for their packages).

The Windows package is already available. You can find it on the download page.
The Mac OS X package is already available. You can find it on the download page.
The OpenPandora package is already available. You can find it on the download page.
Many of the Linux packages have already been created, and all known packagers have been contacted. Information about where to get the respective binaries or how to get them to work can be found in the Linux binaries page in the wiki. Download links for other supported systems will be available at the download page once the packages are created and published.
As a fallback you can also get the sources from http://files.wesnoth.org/ — but you should first try to get the files through SourceForge.net to help us save bandwidth. Please get the files from SourceForge.net if possible.
The multiplayer server for 1.9.13, 1.9.14 as well as 1.10.x is up and running. This server can only be used to play with other users of 1.9.13 and later. If you do encounter problems, please report them.
The add-ons server for 1.10.x is already running. It was started during the development of 1.9.0 and it serves content for all 1.9.x and 1.10.x versions. If you encounter any problems with add-ons not working as expected, please notify the content’s author — most of them should be here in the Scenario & Campaign Development forum.
If you find any bugs, don’t hesitate to report them, but please read the instructions on how to report bugs first! As bug reports in the forums tend not to be forgotten, you will get better results using the official bug tracker. Again, we require your help for finding and fixing issues, no matter how trivial or complicated they are!
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...
