I saved some logs from both branches as text files, and did a diff. Stuff before SVN 7464 (Added Eloque to credits and earlier) seems to be common, but there's also an effectively random subset of commits in the release branch that are merges from the master that I want to exclude. Not sure how to do this other than manually.

Code: Select all

git cherry v0.4.4 master | grep '^+'
Returns all commits part of master and not of the v0.4.4 branch. For having a complete list I needed to remove some merge connections that creeped in during the SVN import with graft points.

I can upload a complete log history if you want.

Well done Geoff!

Comments:

1. The World Tree Special can be lumped together with Honeycomb and Fortress.

2.
~ Changes to fields:
~~ Reduced the spawn rate on small and normal sized maps
~~ Made starting size random
~~ Increased minimum spawn distance from centre of galaxy
Theses points aren't correct compared to 0.4.4. Instead i suggest:
~Changes to fields: Ion Storms and Molecular Clouds now start very small, but grow large before shrinking again.

3.
~ Concentration camps set happiness to 0
Can be removed. This has already been mentioned above ("~ Concentration camps require a population of at least 3 to be produced, and set planet happiness to 0".

4.
~ Added display of troop info to FleetWnd
Is not so informative. I suggest:
~ Troop ships and fleets will now show their total troops value

Additions:

1. In Bugs:
~ Fixed Exobots not having Bad Ground Troops as described

2. Artificial Paradise World and Artificial Factory World?

Bugfix: this was basically solved by switching to SDL if I understood it correctly, but there was that fairly major bug in 0.4.4 that meant the game basically didn't run on some Windows/Graphics cards combos. Given some people are likely to a) only ever download the 'stable' and b) avoid the forums, mentionign that specifically is probably a good thing (I forget what it was specifically, driver related?)

I want to thank you for your efforts.
You seem to release the project when things are ready, very responsible.
I look forward to this release, 4.4 for windows is old, and whatever test release I have for Linux is interesting, but a bit buggy. As I downloaded both of these last Feb, I doubt that any notes I have would be current.
