Changes in this release

Read on for more details about the most notable fixes and additions since the previous stable release. A full list of changes may be found in our changelog.
  • Terrain embellishments
    Additional rock and rubble terrain embellishments have been added.
  • Add-ons password storage
    When uploading an add-on, there is now an option to store the password so that it doesn't need to be re-entered each time.
  • Using arrow keys in small screen mode
    Using the arrow keys to try and scroll on the add-ons manager while in small screen mode no longer closes the add-ons manager with an error message.
  • Updating add-ons from the multiplayer lobby
    When someone is hosting a game which required some add-on and you have an outdated version of this add-on, the game proposes to update the add-on. This will now actually update the add-on when the player tells Wesnoth to update the outdated add-ons.
  • Add-ons with no version information
    Wesnoth will no longer crash when highlighting an add-on in the add-ons manager which has no version information present at all.
  • Firststrike crash
    When a unit has an ability that gives its opponent the firststrike weapon special, Wesnoth will no longer crash.
  • Inconsistent scroll speed
    Scrolling around a map will now scroll at a much more consistent speed.
Known Issues
General issues:
  • 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 issues:
  • Preprocessor errors corrupt cache (issue #1924). If this happens you have to wipe your cache. That can be done in Preferences → Cache.
