For those of you in the beta, especially those who saw beta-11 at Gen Con and have been wondering where all the extra stuff went, here’s the beta 11 update: I have a release candidate of beta-11, which means I don’t intend to add any more features or fixes before releasing it. It’s been through testing on my dev machine and looks pretty solid. From here, I do a build on my “Official Build Machine” and verify that the installer works and that the updater works. I’ll then collect the list of changes for the “what’s new” page and upload the installer and turn on the updater. All that should happen Saturday.
What’s in beta-11? I’ll go into that in detail, including recording a screencast or two, but for tonight, lets leave it at:
- Fixes for some of the bug reports that have come in lately.
- Ad-hoc drawing (draw on the background of a map or tabletop, just like you would on your battlemat)
- A much-enhanced text object for maps/tabletops. You can set font, color, size, border, and fill.
- It accepts and records license keys, so those who took advantage of the pre-release deal at Gen Con have something to do with the license key they got!
Watch for more later tonight/today. Also, don’t forget that the first in a new series of demos starts tonight at 10PM. Hope to see some of you there!
