Latest build: 0.2.9.1_beta_z2353
You can get it as a direct download or by subscribing to the beta branch on Steam, Itch.io or Zero Install. Handy Zero Install command line:
Code: Select all
0launch -cr 'https://0install.armagetronad.org/armagetronad-beta.xml'
- Aspect ratio and text improvements
- center messages with color codes now work properly
- The non-PPA binary distributions should now really be compatible with every relevant Linux system (If they don't work for you, that does not mean your system is irrelevant! It's still likely a bug.)
- Playback of recordings now does no longer require the --playback command line switch and makes some effort to not fall over when you look at it wrong
- First use changes: less anoying tutorial tooltips, custom camera is now the default, modified initial game
Also, there has been a small security fix merged into 0.2.8.3 (was already part of 0.2.9.0), and it has gotten all the new build system stuff (0.2.8.3.5 was still done on the old, non-docker based one), so it's time to do a release there, too. 0.2.8.3 is now our LTS branch, mostly for conservative Linux distributions.
The latest build for that is 0.2.8.3.6_beta_z1555.
This one isn't on Steam or Itch.io, but you can run it and any updates via a Zero Install command line with version restriction:
Code: Select all
0launch -cr --before 0.2.9-pre0 'https://0install.armagetronad.org/armagetronad-beta.xml'
The tests I do myself for all of those are very basic function tests (start, local game peek, online game peek) using Zero Install on Ubuntu (16.04, 18.04 and 20.04), Fedora (32) and CentOS (8). Those are quick for me, nobody else should need to bother with them. You guys just switch to the beta branch and use it for play. Suggestions for systems to add to the sweep are welcome. Debian is already part of the very very basic compatibility tests done by the CI system, so I don't think it requires additional manual tests. Oh yeah, I also boot up the Windows installer at some point, as well as the Steam and Itch.io builds for both systems.
