3 weeks after the release of 0.4, the Warsow team brings you 0.41; as usual, a build which mostly aims to solve some bugs, with some minor improvements and additions.
The most notable changes are: the missing texture bug on wca1, the rocket projectile speed (weak and strong are both 1000up/s like they were supposed to be), some fixes in the movement area (cg_oldmovement 1 should really feel like old movement now), and some additional maps (the two ctf maps which got playtested in the Warsow pickup channel for a while), and adding some missing settings in graphics and options menus.
Also the mac release has been greatly improved, and includes all needed frameworks and gamedata! For support and troubleshooting, head to this thread.
The release comes in both an installer for windows, as update packages for windows and linux. To install, extract the package over your old Warsow 0.4 folder, keeping intact the folder structure.
Enjoy this release, spread the word, report bugs in the appropriate forums, and have fun!
