- Forums are back online - We finally succeeded in solving the issues with the forum upgrade, so our forums are back online. Which means we can refocus our efforts on the 0.4.8 release, hopefully we'll be able to provide the next release candidate soon. Vezzra 9:30, 15 August 2018 (UTC)
- Forums are still offline - Due to issues with the upgrade process, our forums are still offline. We are working on getting them back up. As that leaves not much time to work on the release, 0.4.8 will be delayed. Vezzra 17:35, 3 August 2018 (UTC)

- FreeOrion 0.4.7.1 has been released. This is a bugfix release. Windows and OSX installers are available on SourceForge and on GitHub. Linux users will need to build from source, or acquire from your distribution if available. Source tarballs are available from GitHub (please use the source tarball file with version and build number in the filename, not the links automatically created by GitHub). See the Compile page for more instructions. See this post for release notes. Vezzra 18:30, 10 September 2017 (UTC)
