For a complete list of new features and bug fixes, please see the online
ChangeLog on SourceForge.

Availability:

Crossfire is available on SourceForge (and its various mirrors).
http://sourceforge.net/projects/crossfire/files/

Binary packages are not yet available and will be released when they are ready.

'crossfire-client-1.71.0.tar.bz2' contains the source distribution for the
client. If you want to play, this is the only piece you need.

'crossfire-client-images-1.71.0.tar.bz2' contains client images and graphics.
This prevents the client from having to request image data from the server. It
is optional but recommended if you have a slow Internet connection.

'crossfire-client-sounds-1.71.0.tar.bz2' contains sound effects. This has
changed since the 1.70.0 release. Of course, it is optional.

'crossfire-1.71.0.tar.bz2' contains the server source distribution as well as
pre-generated archetype and image files. If you are running a server, you need
this.

'crossfire-1.71.0.arch.tar.bz2' contains the unpacked archetypes and pixmaps.
This is only required if you are planning to make changes to game objects and
is not needed to run a server or play the game.

'crossfire-1.71.0.maps.tar.bz2' contains the map distribution. If you are
running a server, you need this.
