...that's because 0.4.14 has not been released yet.
You want to try 0.4.13-dev, the development version which will become 0.4.14 soon (after more changes)

We are not in freeze yet due to work on a few remaining PRs, see my summary in logs http://irc.minetest.ru/minetest-dev/2016-04-25#i_4592872
Freeze is reset to end of Ozzy shift Tuesday night, that's during the day Wednesday Euro time.

Yeehaaa! Very eager for the new release.
You all must be relieved (and anxious) to be so close to it now

I think this is a good moment to point translators to this:

https://hosted.weblate.org/projects/minetest/minetest/

If you know a foreign language and want to help Minetest, please create a account on Weblate (linked above) and start translating.

As of today, the following languages are already at 100% (edit: not anymore):
  • Chinese (Taiwan)
  • German
  • Italian

That's not much, there is still a lot to do. Please help if you can! Thanks! :-)

Edit: Detailed info on translation here: http://dev.minetest.net/Translation

Minetest 0.4.14 is a major release !!! I use the 0.4.13 dev, you have entered a huge amount of improvements! congratulations guys ... Minetest 0.4.14 vanilla is "almost" a complete game! to complete the vanilla is still missing:

- Adding farming characteristics

- Place the block connections (stairs with 90 degree angle, walls, slab + fence gate?!? Epic !!!)

- Survivor mode (Blockman improved its mod "creatures" renamed "mce" great job!)

- Mapgen v5, v6 v7 is incredibly ... the best !!! the v5 and v6 will be converted in the future? you will change the name, to achieve different game modes? example: survivor (v7), adventure (v6), other ways to mapgen v5 :)

Minetest vanilla has made exponential improvements! keep it up! I'm a big fan of your project!

I am Italian, I am 38 years old, and since 1984 I am passionate to the world of video games and computer graphics (my first drawing software is stao "deluxe paint" on Commodore Amiga;)

Thank you all -__ ^

It seems the whole project is locked.

Can someone take a look?

EDIT: Just noticed this:

May I ask for unlocking? Just noticed spanish texts are not even near completion.

Weblate is open again.
I just noticed “feature freeze” does not imply “string freeze”. A couple of strings have been changed recently. Many translations are stilly very lacking behind and the strings are still in flux? That's probably not good.
For me, I'm actually okay with changing strings even now, as long it does not catch me off-guard (let's say, 5 minutes before release). But I am not sure about other translators.
But please try to keep major string changes out unless there is a good reason.

I just read the translate post. Too bad Italian is done, I know some of it. But, I can always use a translator to translate Spanish or something..

est31 made a small mistake and accidentally locked all translations a few days back. He's updated all the po/pot files and everyone should be translating now. Do not wait! Happy translating!

I was wondering if you could possibly give an estimated release date so that I am not so anxious and so that I'm not constantly checking the website. That would be awesome!

I'm excited :) the new 0.4.14 is too beautiful! sin that in the dev yet it was not been corrected the nodes for the iron bars, glass pane, and the stairs that form the corners at 90 degrees :(

The new inventory is fantastic! pity that to activate the search of the blocks, I press the "?" button, the search does not work in real time! or by pressing return.

Great job guys! I tested the latest 0.4.13 dev, I have not encountered crashes, and problems of any kind (stability), tomorrow looks the stable 0.4.14 ^ ___ ^

Yeah, I don't really understand why the xpanes conversion couldn't get merged, building styles and matierials change over time, and it makes far more sense to start off with a pane, that a plus.

in my small hack, I plugged connected glass ... I never understood why not enter the connected glass, obsidian, glass and bread, in the vanilla. Arrange the xpanes, and Minetest finally allow you to build more complex structures! in MoreBlocks the stairs with a 90-degree block are there, but the rest do not care.

In future releases, you will add:

- The items (hoe, sword, pickaxe, shovel), are too small! you can magnify the items? the look and feel better;) without overloading the game engine.

- Inventory, real-time search, without pressing the button "?"

- Snow stair?

- Ice Stair?

- Mossy Cobblestone Stair?

- Mossy Slab

- Coloured glass?

- Crafting Table?

- The mapgen v5 and v6 be updated, to create new game modes?!? The v7 is more advanced than the others, I the v5 and v6 do not use it anymore. I think it is a good idea.

Those would be just decor blocks which does nothing useful nor they introduce new mechanics which would make game more interesting to play. Not useless but there are plenty things higher priority IMO.
