Google Summer of Code 2013 Announced!

Hey everybody,
Google has just announced Google Summer of Code 2013, the program that brings students in the world of FOSS development by sponsoring them during the summer working on an open source project!

Of course Hedgewars will apply for participation again this year, and perhaps it will host a couple of projects outside the realm of Hedgewars.

No details or idea list are ready yet, but start spreading the word, we're going to have another exciting summer!

Update: Since we're already receiving a few contributors willing to start hacking with Hedgewars, if you need some fresh ideas to carry out, checkout the the TODO page and of course our bug tracker


Service announcement!

Just a quick post to announce 25 new tasks available for GCI participants and a new download for OS X (64bit) which fixes a strange crasher with "The Specialists" mode.

Update: make that 50! We have a total of 100 tasks Smile

Invitation to Google Code In 2012

Amazing news just arrived!

Although we had no plans to participate to GCI this year, we got involved the same! The good guys at the Copyleft Game Group invited our team to provide a few tasks and mentoring power.

And so we did, we just submitted around 40 tasks that students from 13 to 17 years of age will be able to tackle, along with the other 100 tasks from the group and thousands from all the other GCI organizations.

We finely tuned the tasks to be well self contained and precise, giving pointers to where to start working. Many tasks do not involve coding at all and were designed to simplify approaching open source projects. Being in a larger group also help leverage the load of mentoring so we believe this year will go smooth.

Head over http://gci.copyleftgames.org and start browsing the group task, spread the word with your friends about GCI and get involved in FOSS!

Release candidate available for 0.9.18

This formal title is for demonstrating that we are improving our release skills!

Wow, our beta program has been a huge success, lots of downloads and user feedbacks! More than 30 bugs were found in just this little time (~20 of them just by vos, hats off) and we've been busy fixing everything we could.

A few bugfix have been planned for a future release (1.0.0 maybe) and some other could have completely slipped, but we plan to respect our self-imposed release date of 31st October!

Without further ado, I present you the Release Candidates, which are the best approximation of the final version you are going to download in a few days.

Windows: http://download.gna.org/hedgewars/hedgewars-0.9.18-7918-35dfc54ba2c6.zip
OS X: http://download.gna.org/hedgewars/hedgewars-osx-0.9.18-7918-35dfc54ba2c6.tar.bz2

Even better than beta, these versions are *immediately* available for download. As always please report any issue in our cozy bug tracker

Releasing in one week...?

You read it right! The rumours were true! We can now safely announce a release plan!

0.9.18 is on its way, just in time for Hedgewars birthday, the 31st of October.

We've prepared some builds for you so that you can betatest the next release of Hedgewars and report any bugs you might find! In the rare case you find any, please add them here: http://code.google.com/p/hedgewars/issues/list

Let's see who's the first player to get past the 100th issue (but please check for duplicates before posting)

Third update: Congrats to vos for making it! Wink Smiley

By the way, if you have any translation update now it would be a nice time to submit it! Also, if you ever contributed code for Hedgewars and for some reason you haven't been added to the credits yet, get in touch with us immediately!!!

Update: The Windows build is ready!
Second update: The OS X build is ready!

The beta builds are being baked right now, and they might be hot for a while, we'll publish them very soon (tm)
