NOTE: Due to how expensive it is, Wesnoth's installer is not signed. This often results in the installer being flagged as potentially dangerous by antivirus software because the publisher is unknown.
The macOS package is not ready and will be made available later.

Known Issues
General issues:

General issues:
  • Preprocessor errors corrupt cache (issue #1924). If this happens you have to wipe your cache. That can be done in Preferences → Cache.
