Are there anymore updates/new versions in the pipeline BZ seems to have stagnated of late, and I fear that soon no one will play anymore!

I think there are constantly small changes being added for a future update. However, seeing as this is an old game with no true business/development organization, the only people working on it are those who have the skills, time and want to voluntarily make changes. Meaning that the people who have the time/want/skills, will only do it on occasion.

But I wouldn't have any major fears of suddenly everyone leaving. Those that play now are very content with the current game status and the players make their own fun. Like the GU/Ducati Leagues have been around for a long time now...yet there are still countless matches going on everyday.

If you wanna help out, its open source, so go ahead and look around and make changes yourself. But I would say the best way to make BZ more fun without trying to magically get a new release out...would be to make a plugin.

You can see the list of changes in the commit logs,
for 2.4.x related changes
https://github.com/BZFlag-Dev/bzflag-im ... its/v2_4_x

for 2.6 development work
https://github.com/BZFlag-Dev/bzflag-im ... its/v2_6_x

Mostly it's just small fixes and minor things for code cleanup, I don't believe anyone is working on any major features or has been for a while.
