The Summoning Wars team is proud to announce the release of version 0.5.8! Get it from our downloads page. This release includes mostly changes to the underlying framework and some bugfixes. Additionally, most problems which were uncovered by the coverity static analysis tool were fixed by dezgusty. This version will not work with CEGUI 0.7 anymore. Linux users will have to compile CEGUI themselves, if the distribution does not provide packages for this version.

The editor took a lot of steps forward. Recently we have completed the NPC rendering in our editor. Saving and editing still has to be implemented.

We still search for people willing to help move this project forward. If you have some free time and want to help our project, do not hesitate to join our forums and introduce yourself. We are searching for contributors in all areas. If you are a MAC or Linux user, please consider helping us out as a platform maintainer.

We now use Weblate, which is an awesome free tool to translate projects. If you are interested in helping translating, you can do it here: https://hosted.weblate.org/projects/sumwars/

In case you'll provide some nice screenshots (one or two, probably there is something to show off), I'll try to promote it on several Russian websites.

All screenshots we have now are not very good. I'd like to take some screenshots during a multiplayer session. If anyone has time in the near future, I'd like to host a session.
