Call for testing and translations: 1.0.0 Alpha 1

We are preparing the long-awaited version 1.0.0 and we need you (yes, YOU!) to help us testing.

We release the version 1.0.0 Alpha 1 now!
This is not the official 1.0.0 release yet, just a preview version for testing. Please give feedback! We expect this version to still have some annoying bugs which we need to hammer out before we do the big real release.

For Windows users
Download 1.0.0 Alpha 1: Hedgewars-1.0.0-Alpha1.zip

GNU/Linux users:
As always, see Building on GNU/Linux, which should still apply. But it is strongly recommended to run in the console:

cd ~/hg/hedgewars/trunk;hg pull -u;hg up 9231247b1f83;cmake .;make install

To make sure you are in sync with the Windows version.

String freeze for 0.9.25

Frozen hog! Hello, hedgewarriors!

The next release (version 0.9.25) is moving closer. And closer … Smile

And we have gotten to a point in developent, the “string freeze”, where we will not change any of the translatable text strings until the next release.

This means we need people to translate those texts into various languages so that people around the world can enjoy Hedgewars in their preferred language!

Our translation system sadly is still a bit complicated, but there's a guide for new translators for that.

As this can be a daunting task, we strongly recommend translators (and those who want to be) to talk to as in the chatroom, this will make things go much smooother. Chatroom: https://hedgewars.org/chat

Of course, every translator will be credited.

In other news, the next version will have a few new taunts as well. Expect your hogs to be amazed by great shots, scared of grenade, swearing at their own stupidity, and more.
