Seventh "beta" release of Freeciv 2.0.0[]

20 Jan 2005
The seventh "beta" for Freeciv 2.0.0 has been released. You can download it from either of:
Windows binaries are available at:
  • [3] (XP, 2000, and NT only)
  • [4] (95 and above)
Note that this is still not the final 2.0.0 release. We're getting closer, and this could, maybe, possibly be the last beta. But probably not. We've gotten lots of bug reports but there are a lot of bugs we've had trouble tracking down. If you find a bug please send a report to [5]. Please try to give us all the information possible, including everything you did to reproduce it (if you can reproduce the bug). If you find a crash in the Windows binary include the civserver.RPT or civclient.RPT in your report. If you have multiple bugs, remember to report them in separate e-mails.
For a tentative feature list in Freeciv 2.0, please see the NEWS-beta page. For a list of changes since beta6, see NEWS-beta7.
