  • Forum user handler ban durations are now reported back to banned players.
Known Issues
General bugs:
  • OneDrive can interfere with Wesnoth’s user config/data directory set-up, leading to all kinds of different manifestations of the issue. There’s no fix available yet. The recommendation for the time being is to avoid syncing the Wesnoth user directory with OneDrive.
General bugs:
  • Preprocessor errors corrupt cache (issue #1924). If this happens you have to wipe your cache. That can be done in Preferences → Cache.

Hello, thank you so much for posting this regular update.
This update hasn't landed on Ubuntu yet, nor the version 1.4.6, the last activity on the repositories dates back to November of 2018.
How to contact the Linux packagers? I feel the game is falling behind on Ubuntu.
Thanks again.

I would suggest the Steam version or the flatpak, if you're looking for 1.14.7 at the moment.

I'll look into these options, thanks.
And please, see what's up with them. I understand it's a volunteer work and that they have lives going on, but this game is a way to escape life for us. You know what I mean?

Assuming you're sticking with LTS Ubuntu releases, my assumption is that they won't have 1.14 until 20.04 is released. Otherwise, 18.10 has 1.14.4 and 19.04 currently looks like it has 1.14.5.

I am, but I have backports enabled, and I've had 1.14.5 since it was released for Ubuntu 16.04.
