Version difference

#1 Post by ghealy » Thu Aug 24, 2017 5:53 pm

Is there a difference between version build 2017-08-24.4e12b03 released at 6:21 am and version build 2017-08-24.2d468bc) (0.4.7.1 RC1)?

TIA

yes, there is a difference. The first one is the current regular test version. The 2nd one (0.4.7.1 RC1) is a bugfix release for 0.4.7 -- it is the code from 0.4.7 from months ago, plus a handful of purely bugfix commits. Both of them are important for us to get some playtesting on (especially the 0.4.7.1.RC1, we need to be very confident it is totally stable, or at least not having any problems that 0.4.7 did not also have, before we finalize that bugfix release).
If I provided any code, scripts or other content here, it's released under GPL 2.0 and CC-BY-SA 3.0

Of interest might be that the repository for test build has about 9% more commits than that for the v0.4.7.1 release.
