Post by blast » Sat Apr 25, 2020 5:04 am

We are pleased to announce the release of BZFlag 2.4.20. Platform binaries and the source code are available for download using the following links:

Windows: https://download.bzflag.org/bzflag/wind ... 2.4.20.exe
macOS: https://download.bzflag.org/bzflag/maco ... -macOS.zip
Source Code: https://download.bzflag.org/bzflag/source/2.4.20/

This release added several new functions/events to the bzfs API and reorganized the client menus to improve usability. It also adjusts some default options, such as radar size, to improve the new user experience.

👏
I've been working on a real-time stats site called BZList, please check it out! It is still in active development, so some features are missing and watch out for bugs.

I've been looking forward to this release for quite a bit.
Glad to see it finally here.
