This seventh release of the 1.11.x development branch delivers more improvements and new features aimed at both players and content creators. Some of the most notable changes in this release, in no particular order:
As usual, there are many additional changes since the last development release, most of which are listed in the full changelog. There’s also an alternative players changelog including only those changes deemed to be relevant for regular players by our contributors.
Do not be disappointed if the game crashes every now and then — development versions are not intended for new and regular players in need of a stable gaming experience, who should stick to the current stable 1.10.x series instead. However, if you want to help us test what will eventually become the next stable 1.12.x series, you should definitely check it out and report to us any problems you find so they can be fixed in a timely fashion. Content authors are also encouraged to port and test their content with development versions to detect any problems with their add-ons or Wesnoth in advance.
This release includes contributions from bumbadadabum and gfgtdf, now members of our developers team. Do you want to help shape the future of Wesnoth too? You are always free to check http://devhelp.wesnoth.org/ and join us in the #wesnoth-dev IRC channel on irc.freenode.net to ask for help for getting started!
