I'm sure you don't mean to sound rude. But you do. Minetest is a hobby project, and people don't like to get ordered to respond quickly during their hobby time :-).

This is not the helpdesk for some paid project.

The latest version will be released when it's deemed stable enough. I don't know when that will be.

I do know it's already available if you want it. Just look in the 'builds' topic.

Happy Minetesting.

Lol u w0t m8. Those who installed 0.4.16 waited a whole year for a new stable release - and it's still counting for those who cannot use the latest Android version due to driver issues.
If you want a recent release, get a build from this subforum: Windows, MacOS, *buntu, All OS, Rick Astley.

"It's done when it's done". Wait for it. If you're lucky then it's within a year.

Keep doing so and don't bother too much about a new version.

I assume 5.0.0 will not be released before late Q1/2019.

all i can think each time i read "it's ready when it's ready" i think of john carmack stating a regret of his was always saying "it's ready when it's ready."

sometimes you cannot wait: the time is now. edit: or later.

He's probably so impatient because he doesn't know that others games exist. He thinks that when when 0.5.0.0 will be released a load of new features will be added into MTG.
