changelogs for Wesnoth 1.0.3 and 1.0.3a?

Post by lea »

changelogs for Wesnoth versions 1.0.3 and 1.0.3a is missing from https://github.com/wesnoth/wesnoth/blob/1.0/changelog, it ends with version 1.0.2+svn

what was changed for 1.0.3 and 1.0.3a?
where missing changelogs can be found?

also why versions 1.0.3 and 1.0.3a report being 1.0.2? (in the lower left corner of main menu)

finally curious why 1.0.3a is (AFAIK) the only Wesnoth version number that contains a letter

changes found by comparing folders of installed BfW 1.0.2, 1.0.3 and 1.03a:
new campaigns: "A Seed of Evil", "Age of Iron"
unknown changes (binary differences) in wesnoth.exe, editor.exe, wesnoth.mo files

changes found by comparing folders of installed BfW 1.0.2 and 1.03:
new campaign: "The Dark Hordes"
unknown changes (binary differences) in wesnoth.exe, editor.exe files
changes (did not check which particular ones) in many .cfg files, campaigns, maps, images,translations

if anyone can point to more details about this "archeological" topic regarding this then please let me know

regarding "Version 1.0.2+svn" and other "...+svn" versions mentioned in changelog: are there any binaries corresponding to these versions?

Surely those are addons?

Usually the "+svn" suffix means the latest, unreleased version in the SVN repository (so there would probably be no binary produced for it).

In this case it looks like whoever made the 1.0.3 release forgot to update the version number when the release was made, so version 1.0.2+svn is essentially version 1.0.3.

Not sure what the difference is between 1.0.3 and 1.0.3a - presumably it is some very small fix (or they would have called it 1.0.4).

those are preinstalled campaigns (possibly "mainlined" from user-made addons), they are in /data/campaigns/ subfolder, not in /userdata/data/campaigns/ where user-made content goes for old versions of Wesnoth

actually it has many more changes compared to 1.0.2 -> 1.0.3

Never even heard of these titles? Are they playable on current stable? Or any salvageable story draft to check out?

looks like "A Seed of Evil" is abandoned - last post in this forum topic was in 2005
