Minetest 5.0.0 feature freeze !

by nrz » Sat Jan 05, 2019 20:23

Hello community members, modders and players !

We are glad to announce that we ended the feature dev cycle for Minetest 5.0.0. Latest validated features will merged today or tomorrow. No new feature PR will be merged until 5.0.0 release.

Minetest feature freeze will start on 6th January at 23h59 UTC.

When the feature freeze will start no already in dev progress feature will be merged. We will polish minetest stability & do only bugfix, translations & documentation.

We expect a Minetest release on the 2nd or 3rd Februrary if the Github milestone is cleared.

Milestone link: https://github.com/minetest/minetest/milestone/9

Thanks for your patience for this very late but awaited release.

Minetest 5.0.0 changelog is there: https://dev.minetest.net/Changelog (it's not complete but will be updated)

You can find test builds on Gitlab (Windows & Linux .deb only): https://gitlab.com/minetest/minetest/pipelines. You should choose the more recent pipelines based on master commits.

This is great news! Minetest 5.0 is nearly out! So, does this apply to Minetest Game as well?

This is either bad English or wrong, if a blocker for 5.0.0 is a feature it will continue to be worked on and merged. Content database needs some work and to complete it may require some new features.
The phrase 'feature freeze' means 'no merging of features that are not essential for release'.

The link to the blockers for 5.0.0 is https://github.com/minetest/minetest/projects/4 not the milestones. The milestones are things to consider before release but are not necessarily blockers.

The release date depends on when we clear the blockers, hopefully we can clear them in 2 weeks giving us another 2 weeks of testing their code. So the release date is an aim not an expectation.

paramat: no bad translation here. Milestone and project are both useful to track. Project is a global roadmap where you put issues. Milestones are steps to achieve.

OK, I almost completed the German translation today, but I'm stuck at 6 strings from the advanced settings which I fail to translate so far:

Center of light curve mid-boost.

Light curve mid boost

Light curve mid boost center

Light curve mid boost spread

Spread of light curve mid-boost.
Standard deviation of the mid-boost gaussian.

Strength of light curve mid-boost.


WTF is “mid-boost”?

I also posted PR to fix some translation/typo issues:

Quick research shows that the term is actually used for music amplifiers and electronic guitars and is used to raise/amplify the Mittenanteil (midrange) of the sound frequency.

Here’s a video of what it does: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=20iGo67PJ8c

But there seems no proper translation that is not a description of what it does. But Midboost as a term seems to be used in German publications as well.

This is what I imagine:

„Verstärkung der Mitten“ or „Mittenverstärkung“ maybe?

I went with “Mittenverstärkung”. Translators: On Weblate, there will be another translation update in the next days. Stay tuned!
