The FreeCol team are vaguely pleased to announce the release of FreeCol 0.11.3. This is a bug fix release to clean up yet more annoying problems in version 0.11.0/1/2. All 0.10.x and 0.11.x games should continue to work with 0.11.2.
We hope you enjoy FreeCol 0.11.3. Onward to 1.0.
The FreeCol Team
There is a nasty game corrupting bug on the loose BR#2796. We need a reproducible test case to make definitive progress on it. However 0.11.3 contains a fix for our current best guess at a possible cause, and a further fix that makes the corruption recoverable by saving and reloading the game. Another theory alas is that it is caused by certain versions of Java, which is not something we can fix.
The installer for 0.11.2 on Windows had problems BR#2790, which should be much improved in 0.11.3, however there is still concern for systems where the installed Java uses a different word size (32/64 bits) than the underlying operating system.
Since 0.11.2-release, fifteen bugs have been fixed, there was one duplicate and three invalid reports. One bug report has been reassigned as an improvement request. Progress on five reports is blocked needing further information. Five new bugs remain open, consisting of the corruption bug mentioned above, four UI issues.
