22nd Jul 2018 – After over three years, Freeciv 2.6.0 is released. NEWS-2.6.0 describes what's changed since 2.5.x. (The previous stable release, 2.5.11, is still available from the Old downloads page.)
24th Mar 2018 – Freeciv 2.5.11 fixes a regression in 2.5.10: a crash in the Windows build when resizing a dialog.
3rd Mar 2018 – The web version of Freeciv, play.freeciv.org, has been shut down. The sole volunteer who was running the service is no longer willing to continue doing so. We haven't identified anyone else on the (very small) Freeciv team who has the skills and time to run this service hosted on freeciv.org, so you should expect it to be down for the foreseeable future.
