Minetest 0.4.17 release date (bug fix only release)

by nrz » Tue Apr 03, 2018 06:46

Hello people,
we know you are waiting for a checkpoint release in 0.4.X series. We have listened to you, we have took time to backport fixes from 0.5.X branch to 0.4.X and here is our current plan.

Minetest 0.4.17 will be released on 15 april 2018.

This date can move a little, depending on which artifact you are based on and some coredev time. Android artifact can have a little bit delay (2-3 days).

Please note it's a bugfix checkpoint release on 0.4.X series, but we are working mainly on 0.5.X release, our biggest release since ages :).

Despite we talked before it should not be the last release of 0.4.X series, it's mostly to permit server owners to have more bug fixes on their servers, and we certainly do a future 0.4.18 while releasing 0.5.0 to close this 0.4.X series, with last time bugfixes.

If you want to know what bugfixes will be present on this release, please look at the github commit log (we don't have a human readable changelog yet)

I'm surprised how many times this is asked for each and every release. We don't have a crystal ball to tell you which bugs will be discovered or which bugfixes will be written in the future. If you can find of buy a working one, then I'd be interested to see how Minetest evolves in the next years. Also the release cycle is quite unpredictable. From the previous releases ( https://github.com/minetest/minetest/releases ) you can see how much they vary: sometimes the next release happens after two months, in other cases it takes 10 months.

Fixed. It wasn't a lie but bad communication, the date meant the last time the changelog was updated

"Lie" sounds so ungrateful - :)

Make make clear then that it is the “last updated” date by prepending it with “last updated on”?

I talk about the version before your edit that somehow implied it was a changelog of a released version.

Can’t write it any clearer, sorry.

If you’re not able to get it, it’s not my fault.

I fixed it and said it wasn't intentional, why do you feel the need to tell me to do something I've already done and then state the obvious?

Linuxdirk this is a good example of how you generate aggravation out of nothing and then blame it on someone else. I hope eventally you realise it is you, not others, which is the cause of much of the aggravation you are involved in.
It started with you calling a trivial obvious mistake a 'lie', then you complained about it after it was fixed.

Do you know if a Windows build will be available on the same day as the linux build? I confess to not having a good understanding of what is involved in this.

Also, will there be a release today (15 Apr 2018)? Sometimes delays can't be avoided.

I already looked for the release but its still 0.4.16 shown. It must be a exactly date of release there that we know when Minetest will release (next version)

There will be much less stress for all if you consider the Minetest release to be like a Debian release:
It will ship when it is ready.

Have a look at previous releases. There won't be a release before mid or end of May - at best.

There will be a release when the devs feel like the version is release-worthy. It may be this week, or next week, or in 3 months. Just don't wait for the release ... Play the game!
