We got network mode at nightlies again…

Since more than a month ago, the nightly compilations were built from the stable branch without network features. As the stable version has been already released, the nightlies are built from trunk again. Therefore Dwachs, one of the main developers, has announced that nightlies from the nightly downloadpage contain the network features again!

If you want to help us improving the network mode by discovering and reporting bugs, please download and test the new nigthlies!

Simutrans 102.2.2 released

simutrans-logoSince the 102.2.1 had some critical errors due to some last minute code changes, we made the 102.2.2 release. There are still few known errors in it. But we decided to focus on the upcoming network release, since bridging between trunk and branch cost us more and more time.

You will also note that there is now a Haiku instead of a BeOS version. This is due to my BeOS is on a dying computer and for any recent system the Haiku-alpha release is a better choice.
