Multi Theft Auto (MTA) is an open-source software project that adds full on-line gaming support to Rockstar North's Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas PC game, in which this functionality is not originally found. It is the first open-source modification that adds a highly customizable network play element to a commercial closed-source single-player PC game. Developed as an experimental piece of software for earlier Grand Theft Auto series, Multi Theft Auto has become an advanced multiplayer platform for gamers and developers. Our software provides on-line gaming for dozens of players running user-generated gameplay content and scripts through a Lua virtual machine, and is freely distributed under the GPLv3 license.
We are proud to present Multi Theft Auto: San Andreas 1.0.1 - the latest version of our Multi Theft Auto: San Andreas software and the successor to the recently released Multi Theft Auto: San Andreas 1.0.

Multi Theft Auto: San Andreas v1.0.1 is focused on fixing some high priority client and server crashes, resolving compatibility issues and improving cross-platform compatibility (including support for running on Mac OS X) for the dedicated server, while fixing some various major bugs within the client and resources package.
This release is backwards compatible with our previous release (v1.0). This means that you can use the new v1.0.1 client to connect to v1.0 servers, however we still encourage server owners to upgrade to the latest version due to the number of issues that were fixed in this release.
On a sidenote: this is also the first release that we're doing from our open-source repository at GitHub, so if you'd like to contribute, be sure to fork our repository!
A basic list of changes can be found in the Changelog on our repository, or in the download's description.
