There are still several major issues being worked on for the next major release, so I wouldn't recommend holding your breath. It'll be released when it's released. Usually the major releases are preceeded by several testing phases, and those haven't even begun yet.

Cheers!

About the best you could say is that it will be like BZFlag is now, but better (we hope) :P

I don't think there is a list of what will definitely be in the "next" version. There is discussion from time to time on the irc channel of what they would like to see, and people are working on things, but until it's done...

The Release should be in a couple of months (from what was said from previous discussions)

It will most likely include some new features, maybe not, it might only fix some bugs...All in All, nobody know exactly what it will contain, all ican say is it will be similar to previous version, but better, hopefully...until then all we can do is wait =)

Thank you for providing that "oh so vague" update. Have you even downloaded the CVS, compiled, and looked at it? Or are you just guessing? The code is out there. Please can try it, and SEE what it has.

Um, yeah they do. We know everything currently in CVS will be in the final version without a doubt in one form or another (98% of the time, once the patch is in, it's in, unless there is vehement opposition to it).

Now please make sure you know what you're talking about first.

I am just stating that we can't see the future...it is entirely possible they might take some stuff out of the CVS build, It is VERY likely that they will keep what's already in the CVS build, i am not entirely wrong meteorite

Yeah. Right.

I have never seen them take anything out of CVS ever. That is why I suppose that 98% of the time everything stays. Mind you, I keep up with development on #bzflag on IRC and CIA whereas you apparently don't.

Make sure you know what you're talking about before you start making statements that appear to be factual.

You are mostly correct Meteorite, i'm just saying that it's possible, not likely, but possible

Possible? Yes. Have I ever seen it happen? No. And I really don't expect it to.

(And DTR's quote is in reference to when it's coming out... not on features in development)

It won't be the same. Many new features are added, bug fixes, stuff like that. But the basic principle and game are still there.

Haven't been watching very carefully then ;) Maybe not much recently, but reverts aren't THAT rare.

Yes...Why?

It stands for concurrent versions system, it is a module that allows you to contribute to it without modifying all at once...basically, there is a lot more other stuff about it, which i don't really care to post

For the non-chipheads in here, the most noticeable thing about the next release will be massively updated graphics. Hit the screenshots section of the forum for the goods.
