The latest version of MegaMek (0.28.0) has been released. MegaMek is an implementation of the BattleTech board game, written in Java. It features network play and runs on Linux/MacOSX/Windows. The level 1 tech and rules from the game are currently functional, and we are busy completing the level 2 rules and technology.
