Note that this is still not the final 2.0.0 release. We continue to fix bugs, and continue to find more of them. Please send bug reports to bugs@freeciv.org, with as much descriptive information as possible. Send a savegame if possible (especially if it will help to reproduce the problem) No bug is too small! If you find a crash in the Windows binary include the civserver.RPT or civclient.RPT in your report. If you have multiple bugs to report please report them in separate e-mails.
For a tentative feature list in Freeciv 2.0, please see the NEWS-beta page. For a list of changes since beta4, see NEWS-beta5.
