Yes so soon :). This is a hotfix release where several issues with 0.4.0 have been fixed. Some crashes don''t happen anymore, signs work, etc. Otherwise it has no new features, but we urge you to use this one instead of 0.4.0.

As usual, you can find the release on SourceForge.

It has been a while, but finally OpenTTD 0.4.0 is out. Things took a bit longer than expected, and everyone was busy, but it is done. Expect yet another major update. This time bigger maps, "unlimited" amount of towns, industries, stations, etc., heavily improved and protected network-gameplay, a new, smart, pathfinder, multiple busstops, etc. Too much to say all at once.
Download 0.4.0 right now and enjoy the game!

Well, it has been a while.

Network is nearing to a finished state. The other part, a complete rewrite of the code structure to allow for almost complete freedom in building (stations underground, curved tunnels, signals on bridges, supports, etc. etc.) has however met a slight delay, as school/work has caught up with most members of the development team.
