I'm glad to hear there is a small number of show-stoppers, this feels like waiting for Haiku R1B1 all over again, except now I have to update a mod I'm working on. At least I did a register function and I have code only once, and absolutely nothing has changed about entities, right? Pic related.

I'm 77 and since grad school in 1968, I've spent 40 years of my life programming. It's better to do it right than to do it over.

Hello, just an update to that old post, I was absent, but I'm here now.

I've asked if we can trigger a feature freeze asap, this weekend for example. It will be 1 month feature freeze, at least, to have the most testing we can and community feedback.

This can be extended. Depending on when the freeze starts, we can expect a release before the end of january 2019

Always. It's as simple as using 5.0.0-dev, and reporting any issues you find with backtraces and instructions on reproducing

Any particular build? Github tickets work for reporting?

Nope. The developers would really like if you tested with the latest commit and included the commit number when reporting too.

I get a lot of these:
Code: Select all
2018-12-09 09:29:47: WARNING[Server]: ScriptApiBase::objectrefGetOrCreate(): Pushing ObjectRef to removed/deactivated object, this is probably a bug.


In my 5.0.0-dev server. But as it is not the latest HEAD, and I actually don't really know which commit it's built from I didn't report them yet.

I'll try to update my server, but since I need to help ~10 kids to update/recompile their clients because the network protocol changed it'll have to wait for a free week-end.

I the error persists on the new HEAD I'll try to look into it. In the mean time, could this be a bug in minetest core or is it in a mod?

It will. This warning is caused by a mod which tries to access an ObjectRef which was already removed from the world such as: unloaded entities in mapblocks or players who left the world.

Ah, so a mod it is. I'll try to find out which one then :-).

It would maybe be a good idea if the error message was a bit more descriptive and maybe name the mod. I'll look into it.

Uh, this is a warning now? I save some ObjectRefs in tables in advtrains to remove them on certain occasions(if not already unloaded) and don't lose the reference, and use a call to getyaw() to identify whether still active
is there a new supposed way to check objectrefs for validity?

For those like me who were confused, the download button is all the way to the right, and they call them "artifacts."

I hope this is the right topic for my concern if not feel free to move my post to another.

Is it possible for you developers to add a new command for the in-game console in 5.0.0 that clear the chat and the older commands?
Something like
Code: Select all
reset
in a GNU / Linux terminal.
That would bring more oversight.

Greetings.

I was thinking of the same thing myself. That would be very useful.
