Odamex 0.6 Released!
« on: May 12, 2012, 00:16:36 »
** THIS IS A REQUIRED UPDATE **

* The Release *

Odamex 0.6 is finally here! After many months of testing, you can finally enjoy all of the new features of Odamex 0.6 on public servers. Rather than run down the huge list of changes in paragraph form here, here are links to the abbreviated changelog, complete changelog, and the actual svn changelog. In addition to these change logs, there were a number of video previews of Odamex 0.6 which can be seen on Odamex's Youtube Page.

Some of the obvious highlights of this release are the addition of slopes, an advanced voting system, a brand new netdemo format, aesthetic improvements, optimized mouse input, and numerous network enhancements. However, these are simply some of the most notable additions and only scratch some of the changes that have occured going into Odamex 0.6.

Many people have waited a long time to see this, very awesome to see it come to fruition. Kudos to the hard work of the current dev team and the dedication of those supporting odamex to see it come this far after apparently quite a long time. When I first played odamex a long time ago, I really did not like it, but it has come so far and improved so much it has become my (and many others) port of choice.

Can't wait to see it grow!
