New Release: 2.4.16 "Reduce, Reuse, Replay"

Post by blast » Mon Sep 24, 2018 1:33 am

We are pleased to announce the release of BZFlag 2.4.16. Platform binaries and the source code are available for download using the following links:

Windows: https://download.bzflag.org/bzflag/wind ... 2.4.16.exe
macOS: https://download.bzflag.org/bzflag/maco ... -macOS.zip
Source Code: https://download.bzflag.org/bzflag/source/2.4.16/

This release primarily fixes a bug that I introduced in 2.4.14 that corrupted replay file headers. This release reverts that change, and can also read the corrupted header for replays made with the bad code.

I just rebuilt and re-uploaded the Windows installer as I realized I had used an older copy of the dependencies.

I will try to have it up within a few more days. There are bugs in certain versions of Xcode that we have to maneuver around when building the release binary, and since Mojave was released there are several other things to check as well.

To be fair, there's really not much of a difference between 2.4.14 and 2.4.16, especially if you're just running the client. The majority of the changes only apply to the server.

The macOS build has been posted. And while what blast said is true, there is a nice fix for the window flickering when you start the game, courtesy of tupone.

So glad that flickering was fixed. I don't know why, but it was so annoying to me. haha
