This is another small hotfix, this time to fix a crash when hovering over map markers after the window size or resolution has changed. See the full changelogfor more details to read this same change summary again. We encourage all users of Arx Libertatis 1.1.1 to upgrade to 1.1.2 whenever they feel like it.
Yup, this release is really only one small fix. We have been working on bigger changes, and are getting closer to having fully hardware-accelerated rendering and per-pixel lighting, but did not want to delay this fix until those changes are ready for release.
This release is a hotfix addressing a regression introcuded in 1.1, that caused map markers to not be saved correctly and then removed when such a save is loaded. We encourage all users of Arx Libertatis 1.1 to upgrade to 1.1.1 as soon as possible.
With more than 30000 lines of code changed in over 600 git commits, the 1.1 release fixes player movement issues, minimap scaling, and a bunch of crashes and other bugs. We also continued our work on restructuring the engine, to facilitate new features in the future. Further, there is an improved installer for the data files on *nix systems as well as minor graphics and sound tweaks.
See the changelog for full details.
While we haven't managed to include everything originally planned for 1.1, we felt it was high time for another release after nearly a year of development since 1.0.3.
The Arx Libertatis wiki has been moved from arx.parpg.net to wiki.arx-libertatis.org. User accounts and passwords from the old wiki should still work. While we have set up a redirect for now, please update all links and bookmarks pointing to the old URL.
The 1.0.3 release fixes two regressions introduced in 1.0.2 for Windows users: Crashes on startup after selecting the OpenGL renderer and low mouse sensitivity with the DirectInput backend. There are also fixes for other crashes, rendering glitches, missing speech during cinematics in the Russian and Italian versions, missing ambient sound effects as well as bugs in how some skill values were calculated. See the changelog for more details.
Thanks to Gentoo developer hasufell, Arx Libertatis ebuilds are now available in the portage tree. This means Gentoo users no longer need the arx-libertatis overlay. Mandriva and ROSA packages have also been available in the distribution repositories for a while now.
