Sixteen years ago Spring was released: Happy Birthday Spring Community, stay healthy and optimistic, together we are able to move mountains!

Maybe the best present we currently have is a faster server, so hopefully enjoy the better response times of the website!

The server hosting springrts.com is migrating to a new server, so all services running on it will be offline for a while as database etc. has to be migrated.

At the given time, the DNS-records will be updated, services set offline and the data migrated to the new server to be hopefully be back online soon.

The new ip will be:
(the current/old ip will be

When the DNS-Records are updated some unused entries will be removed.

The old server will be switched off on April 30. 2021: so 10 Days to verify everything was migrated. :-)

Please report issues in the TODO-Thread.

the frontend of springfiles.com wasn't maintained for a way to long time: it contained a lot of security holes, bugs, etc. Thanks to raaar it now has a new and very lightweight frontend.

The old springfiles.com is still available at a new location and was made read only: it will be removed at some point.

Some work still needs to be done , but for now it should be working and allow map and game uploads again with hopefully less problems and bugs.

Please report bugs to our bug-tracker, thanks!

We are proud to announce the release of SpringLobby 0.271!

The new features/changes are mostly minor:

- use platform specific download path for the spring engine: linux32/linux64/windows32/windows64/macosx
- use platform specific config file sections to store spring engine paths
- add engine crash upload dialog
- add ignore/unignore to user right-click menu
- fix game / map info caching not working for games / maps with special chars
- fix crash because of channel/user bridge support
- fix a lot of minor auto downloader bugs

Special thanks to specing who did a lot of the changes and implemented new features!

The SpringLobby-updater on windows will migrate SpringLobby to x64: the existing x32 spring engine can't be used any more and have to be redownloaded.

also the download path of the spring engine has changed, so linux users who upgrade will be partly affected too:

~/.spring/engine/ will be ~/.spring/engine/linux64 (or ~/.spring/engine/linux32, but x32 is deprecated!)

For linux users, a flatpak exists: https://flathub.org/apps/details/com.springrts.SpringLobby

For more details about what will come next, we created a roadmap: /wiki/Roadmap which isn't complete yet.

Cheers! 8)
