We are happy to announce our second received award in a hopefully long list to come. OpenTTD has won first prize of the HUP community (HUP = Hungarian Unix Portal) reader's choice contest in category 'Favourite Free Game'. You can read the official announcement here (Hungarian).

This is the second time OpenTTD has been awarded with first prize by the HUP community, last time in 2005.

The accompanying logo will be put up shortly in its own honourable space as soon as I figure out where to put it exactly ;). Until then...

Let's hope that this beta has way less bugs than the first beta so we can release 0.6.0 'soon', but then releasing 0.5.0 took 3 months so nothing is certain.

The first major step into the road of releasing 0.6.0, which will give you loads of new features, like newhouses, newindustries, signals and diagonal tracks under bridges, trams, autoslope, oneway roads, half tile slopes and much more. It furthermore contains quite a few performance improvements under certain conditions as well as a very long list of bugreports. If you are really interested, you should read the changelog.
We OpenTTD developers hope that you will thoroughly test it so we can quickly release the real 0.6.0.

Have fun!
