A release candidate of build10 of Widelands, a Free, cross-platform
strategy game has been released. The game is heavily inspired by
Settlers II by BlueByte.
This release candidate is a preview to the upcomming release
build-10, scheduled for release at the end of march.
This release candidate is thought as a public alpha test of the
build-10 release, to squash the most annoying bugs.
Widelands uses SDL as graphics and input library and is currently
available for Linux/x86, Mac OSX, Windows 32 and in Source Code.
There is a lot of enhancements in this version compared to build10. A
whole new tribe, various new musics and sounds, new worlds and two
new campaign missions. Also a lot of in game features were added and
a few bugs fixed. We were not lazy.
