We are almost done with the work for 0.5.6. According to the roadmap, allmost all issues are resolved and the last remaining could be postponed or attacked meanwhile. Therefore I have decided to declare changeset c5abf3f76c23 as release candidate.
The release files will be collected in the Wiki:

Wiki 0.5.6-rc Release

Currently, we only have the source package, as fusion is still struggling with the Win build. I will ask trapdoor to provide the Mac package as usual. Please help  by testing the package for some last-minute bughunt.

** Systemwide as well as standalone installation supported

Hi,

The shadows are still in a separate branch. Someone should merge the material-system-056 into the main one. I could do it, but not sooner than tonight.

Let me know if you want the merge :)

Hey all,

you can get a precompiled binary for windows from my dropbox:
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/3473245/sw/sumwars-0.5.6-rc-win32.zip

This is a standalone and portable build! You have to copy your savegames from YourUserfolder/.sumwars/saves to sumwarsfolder/.sumwars/saves if you want to use your old savegames.

Hi,

Here's also a precompiled binary for Windows from the material-branch-056 branch... the one that should bring shadow support either via CPU or GPU shadows. It also follows fusion's example so it's standalone and portable. (note: the exe and dlls from his version and mine are not compatible, so don't try to combine the 2).

If you want to try it, please also let me know if you encounter issues. Thanks in advance.
