Version 0.5.6 is finally complete. As usual, later than expected :D . A big thanks to all those who contributed to it. Moreover, we had significant changes in the internal structure and developement toolbox. Even though (or rather, especially because) these changes are not directly reflected in the list below, I want to thanks for all the work done there.

Here is a list of the changes that are visible for the players:

* Installation:
** Source is provided via Mercurial now
** Systemwide as well as standalone installation supported

* Gameplay:
** Improved Reliability of network gameplay
** Fixed AI to properly attack archers as mages
** Last selected player is now automatically selected on restart
** Map generation for regions is randomized now

* Graphics
** Added shadows (!) - experimental option, please report any issues
** Modified the Logo

* Story / Scripting:
** Added option to skip cutscene

Ok, now get it from the download page and have fun :)

For those 33 people that downloaded the windows portable version until now, I'm currently reuploading the package...
The package generates a wrong plugins.cfg file and won't run correctly.
You don't have to redownload tha package, you can also open the plugins.cfg file in the .sumwars folder next to the exe and replace the line
"PluginFolder=F:/Dev/deps/OgreSDK_vc10_v1-7-4/bin/release/" with this: "PluginFolder=." (without the quotes).

Sorry for any inconvenience  :-[
