If you hardcoded things like the size of the player collision box, eye height, location of collision box relative to player position, etc., you may have some broken functionality since player position has been moved to the collision box origin, I think. Previously player position was (0,-1,0) in collision box space, so mods had to compensate differently than entities which had their positions at (0,0,0).
Every time a mod API is left undocumented, a koala dies.

Minetest wasn't a complete project? But more to my concern, Minetest will become a complete (ie: DEAD) project?!
May God be with you, always.

A technical question. In version 0.5.0, has the player positioning changed? because I noticed that the NPCs for info of my mod are placed at the top of a block. With the 0.4.16 it works perfectly so I would be happy to find useful information so I can fix my little mod that will be useful for my server. Thank you all.

"0.4.17" should really be called "0.4.16.1". We are currently working towards 0.5, but will backport bug fixes to the 0.4 line. ie: "0.4.17" will be a fixes only release.


Does it mean I have it on my mac(downloaded from homebrew)

No, you have copied the 0.4.16 folder so it's added _1 to distinguish them. You have 0.4.16

FYI the date on the 0.5 changelog is the last commit integrated in the changelog, not the release date, which will be announced on the forums.

Concerning 0.4.17 we are thinking about a release on the 15 april. Time to make those backports official, but don't wait for the 0.5 features, they are exclusive to 0.5

0.4.17 will contain only bugfixes, nothing new stuff. I hope they will might be in 0.5.0.

Minetest 0.5.0 doesn't release after 0.4.16. It releases after 0.4.17 and it will be released on this month (April) on 15th day.

Note we have now changed to the 'major.minor.patch' version scheme so the next MT will be 5.0.0. Current MT is 5.0.0-dev.

What??
You mean no more correcting those who say MT 4.17.1? Oh, I see we still can viewtopic.php?f=3&t=20309&view=unread#p322651 ;-p
And I guess we still get to correct those who don't catch this post and continue with the old format : 0.5.0

Whos idea was this!? Its not even April 4th yet! (checks calendar)

But seriously, is there any point in doing this besides confusing everyone? This is just totally confusing: we have a version number with "0" before it to signify this isn't a finished game, and then we b-hop to version 5.0!?

I don`t see any mind in it, either immediately to skip on 5.0.x series. What is it for?

The first number has been removed, and a new number added.

So from 0.Major.Minor to Major.Minor.Patch

No, this dumb change only applies to >=5.0.0. Older versions are still properly versioned.

5.0.0 is more properly versioned than older versions, we're now basically using SemVer
