I've just updated the Minetest Wiki to fix outdated info regarding Minetest Game and I added the info about the new inventory shortcuts with Shift.

See: https://wiki.minetest.net/Inventory#Controls

But the Main Page still claims that Minetest Game is the "default" game but I am not allowed to fix this. Please someone with "Main Page editing rights" fix this.

The Arch Linux package for Minetest has been updated to version 5.8.0-2. It previously shipped with Minetest Game but they have removed it from the package after I notified them.

You forgot to tell them to get rid of Development Test too (it no longer gets installed since 5.7 but they copy it manually during packaging for some reason) so now the first thing Arch users will see when they install the engine is devtest.

For those like me who were puzzled by his "third person" answer, ROllerzxa is the maintainer of the minetest-common-git AUR package. AUR packages are provided by the community; the official Arch Minetest packages are maintained by a different person.
My game? It's Minefall.

Ah right. I assumed the pre-installed DevTest was actually intended but I completely forgot it has been officially removed a while ago. Now I remember. xD

Hello!
I have a question or suggestion.
Could you add water reflections as a shader directly in Minetest?
Or can you only do this via a mod?
Please give me a short answer.
Thanks

There is a file in the source tree that tells you which version matches up - misc/irrlichtmt_tag.txt - in this case it says 1.9.0mt12.

In 5.9.0, irrlichtMt will be bundled in with the Minetest source code, relieving the issue.

Sounds good. Is it enough if the client runs on this version or does the server have to have it as well?

It is important to remember the screenspace reflections version is still a work in progress. The client will always draw the reflections if you build that branch, there is no setting to turn it off. To get that feature into 5.9.0-dev, the code would need to be rebased and a setting added. It would probably be server-side controllable like dynamic shadows and volumetric lighting are, in that the server needs Lua code to enable it, but this is not actually related to Irrlicht; the server doesn't use the graphics feaures of Irrlicht.

Continuing discussion at "How is this guy doing reflective water in Minetest?" since that is the de facto thread for discussing that, not the Minetest 5.8.0 release thread.
