Second beta release of Freeciv 2.1.0Edit

13 Aug 2006
The second beta for the 2.1 series of Freeciv has been released. This is a beta version, so it is expected to contain bugs; report them to bugs@freeciv.org. Download the source code here
Packages for Windows available for download from ftp.freeciv.org:
Package for Mac OS X Tiger (PowerPC) is available for download from ftp.freeciv.org:

Notes

  1. The Windows packages do not contain a Trojan horse. Your virus checker is wrong about this.
  2. The SDL client needs an interface theme available separately. The reason for this is that it contains potentially non-free graphics.
  3. The Mac OS X package includes the "normal" size of the Freeland 2.0.0 tile set.
