Here it comes, OpenTTD 1.3.2-RC2, again with quite a number of bug squashed since the last release candidate. You can obtain it from the usual download location as well as view the changelog.

Among others, most notably a crash which could occur with some AIs was fixed, slowdowns were removed when showing windows with many strings like the advanced settings as well as connection issues with the content server under certain conditions.

If you encounter any bugs or problems, please make sure to tell us; if you enjoy the game, tell others :-)

Many bugs got squashed due to your testing of the stable release. Now it has become time to release a new test version, namely 1.3.2-RC1. Download is at the usual place. The changelog shows all the fixes that were done, including adding support for two new languages.

The new languages required a rewrite of all string rendering code, so it's possible that it's not working optimal in all cases. Please look out for text that suddenly looks different, as it might indicate a bug.

Should you stumble over any bugs or issues that we forgot to fix, please report them.

Enjoy and happy test-building!

Today we updated to change a library to support Brahmic languages (e.g. Tamil and Thai). If you want to compile upcoming releases/nightlies/trunk you have to update.

If you do not compile OpenTTD yourself or you are not using Microsoft's compiler you will not be affected.

Meteorologically it's now summer, and should the weather not agree with that, then now is a good time to update your OpenTTD version to OpenTTD 1.3.1. It's the first maintenance release in the 1.3 series. Additional to the changes as found already in the release candidate a possible crash when overbuilding reserved station tracks was fixed.

Should you stumble over any bugs or issues with this version, please report them.

Enjoy and happy building!

Time for an update to our 1.3 series. With the first release candidate to OpenTTD 1.3.1 we even ship a few features related to translations:
The translators of Scottish Gaelic and Faroese have been very busy so we now ship also those translations. Generally there are now slightly improved translations of the base sets.

Of course being a bug-fix release there's also a lot of bug fixes which accumulated since the release of 1.3.0. Notably there's a number of fixes related to sound effects and vehicle speeds.

You find the full list of changes and fixes in the changelog. Please give this version a sound test and report any bugs and probelms you encounter in our bug tracker.

Have fun!
