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.
General
  • Inspect dialog pagination
    Fixed a crash in the :inspect window when pagination is used.
  • Add-on version check database
    Fixed the source of the error message: "Something is wrong with the add-on version check database supporting the multiplayer lobby". Note that this also required the host of the game to use Wesnoth 1.16.11.
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.

This release doesn't run on the GNU/Linux version on Steam. the flatpak works fine, and running the game through Proton works fine, but for some reason it crashes without even rendering a window on the Steam linux version :( (Also, alt-tabbing in full screen crashes the game with the flatpak version)

It works fine on Linux+Steam for me at least.

Seconded! (By alt tabbing I assume you mean switching desktops I don't have such a key setting, I use CTRL-F1-4 and it crashes sometimes (50% I'd guess))

Does it also crash when using the 1.17 flatpak (https://wiki.wesnoth.org/WesnothBinariesLinux#Flatpak)?

I've been trying hard to get it to and no, neither 1.14 flatpak nor any of the 1.17 flatpaks crash ever.

Best as I can tell is that it started around 1.16.10 (maybe earlier - I skipped from .2 to it or something close to that) and it isn't always a "crash" but what happens is the screen gets garbled (several ways, at first it just becomes random blotches and then when you send it the kill signal first time the screen goes blank except for a few pixels in the upper left corner until you send a second kill signal which finally stops it) and while the program runs fine (music still plays, sound effects etc.) it obviously has to be sent a kill msg.

So yeah, it's probably something that can just be worked around for the little while 1.16 has left to "live". LOL. I've turned on autosaves again (had them off) for when I forget to be careful and the rest of the time I'm just careful to monotask with 1.16.

In any case maybe this info will be of some use in case there's some deep underlying problem. Considering how unreproducible and inconsistent it is though there's no chance this could ever be fixed.
