It's the season again for gifts and goodies. So we also have a goody for you: OpenTTD 1.4.0-beta1, the first beta of the next major release.

There's a number of features new to this version. The largest feature certainly is the long-craved for cargo distribution (CargoDist). But there's a lot of other enhancements like goal scripts now support much more elaborate descriptions, NewObjects can be now much more numerous and diverse and also be placed upon map creation, windows can remember their sizes. And many more. You can find the full changelog here right next to the gift-wrapped binary.

General questions are happily answered in our forum or on IRC.

Lo and behold, a new release of OpenTTD is ahead and as usual we start with a first release candidate for it. Here comes OpenTTD 1.3.3-RC1.

This version took a bit longer than planned to be done, but it ships with a long list of fixes (see this changelog). Most notably the handling of text input and display, drawing and layout text strings got improved, and a lot of long-standing bugs in OSX got fixed.

This is a lot of things which were changed, thus it needs sound testing. Have fun playing (and testing) this new release candidate and please tell us, if you encounter any oddities or bugs.
