New release! Spring 83.0 is out!

Post by jK »

After unpredictable issues, we decided to drop 83.0 and release 84.0 soon.

Yeah, it was long ago that Spring 0.82 was released. 1 year, 2 months & 23 days to be precise or just 449 days. Much water ran down the rivers. Tunisia, Egypt & Libya freed themselves from their despots. Nuclear power mocked official estimates of risk probability again. Duke Nukem Forever was released. Pigs learned to fly.

And today: Spring 83.0 finally gets released!

Again, thanks everyone for your contributions!
This time, special thanks go to SpliFF for his ASSIMP implementation and daftalx for his MacOSX ambitions & supplying us a buildbot client for it.

Download links: It's also the first release with a MacOSX build.
For the time being you can either use an experimental SpringLobby build here or weblobby.

Major changes:
  • ASSIMP support (not 100% finished yet)
  • EFX/EAX support (sound reverb)
  • AI Interface pure-ification
  • Many speedups (and twice as many slowdowns)
Full changelog here.

I hope to update the Debian packages in the next few days. Maybe these will work on Ubuntu too.

Great Job!!!! Best Game Ever!!!
Spring - is only game I play and I waited for a new release sooo long :-)
So I am so happy now! :-D

Hoooge changelog! Great changes (especially I like dynamic lights: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H5je8TKDfNA)

What does this mean? "added LinkingTimeOptimization (currently fails with GCC4.5/6)"
Linux users will not get this optimization and no other problems related to this change? :-)

"added EFX/EAX support" - this ability for windows users only or for linux users too?

EFX/EAX is available everywhere (part of openal-soft).
But for real results maps need to define layouts.

LTO is just interesting for devs. It may reduce the filesize & increase performance in the future, but as said it fails currently. So devs can test it from time to time, maybe with gcc 4.7 or 4.8 it will work fully.

Hurray! :-)

Though we had to disable it for ZK yet. It had issues with "selected invalid ID" breaking random units, usually cons and chat isnt sent to output properly (breaks springie integration, text to speech).
Oh and some people 100% crash on startup, but they are minority fortunately.
