I'm proud to announce the release of spring 106.0. Its for me the most difficult release, as we had different opinions in which direction the development should go.
The plan failed and development basically stopped.

To hopefully bring back some development and activity i released the "develop" branch as it is and was was initially planned.

106.0 brings the often requested OpenGL 4 support and runs using the "Core Profile": so this should allow better performance on newer hardware. Sadly this breaks most lua opengl code and requires a lot of work for game developers to rewrite it.

As announced, no 32 Bit binaries are released any more, as we had several bug reports of crashes which where caused by hitting the 4GB memory limit. Most users already use 64 bit as Springlobby migrated already most users to 64 bit. Also the windows installer was removed because spring mostly is installed by lobby clients.

The (incomplete) changelog is very large, as 104.0 was released more then 4 years ago.

If you find a bug, please report it to our bugtracker.

You can download it as usual from our Download page.

Thank you and Happy Coding! :-)

Thanks A LOT to rtri which made this possible!

On thursday morning i try to upgrade the springrts.com server from debian 10 to debian 11.

Some services will break and the server will reboot: it will be partly offline.

We try to get all services running ASAP!

planned steps:

- update sources.list
- apt update && apt upgrade
- apt dist-upgrade
- reboot
- fix services :regret:

springfiles.com seems gone: that forced me to migrate all services to springfiles.springrts.com

The basic services are up and running, but the clients like springlobby needs to change the api url: this requires a release which will take some time.

the map upload for sure changed.

so please update your links to springfiles.springrts.com!

Please update to springlobby 0.273 and current version of pr-downloader to fix autodownloads.
