After 3 missed deadlines and several months waiting, 3.6.7 is finally released! :D

There are two package choices; both include the latest version of the Launcher (5.3):

3.6.7 Standard Release
Should work for everyone. Includes speech support.

3.6.7 P4/Athlon XP/64-optimized release.

Optimized for Pentium 4 or Athlon XP and above processors. May be slightly unstable than the typical build, but should give better performance.


EDIT: These links are all dead. :(  A new Windows build has been uploaded at http://scp.indiegames.us/builds/WIN/fs2_open_3_6_7.zip


Linux and OSX Release

Brought to you by our diligent cross-platform developer taylor. :) You'll have to compile it yourself though. ;)

Installation:
Extract the .zip file to your Freespace 2 directory. Then, run Launcher.exe. Select the executable that you want to use.

Note that _d denotes a debug build; you should only run these if you run into a bug, or to check a mod release for any possible problems before release.

Check that all the settings in the tabs are configured correctly, and enable features using the 'Features' tab.

Then, hit the 'Run' button of the Launcher to save your settings and start fs2_open. :D

Singh, for goodness sake trim that signature. :p

Woo yay. Can I assume this fixes the afterburner SFX bug and the asteroid field bug?

I tried out the optimized one. Looks good. :yes: The last "beta" build generally worked pretty well for me though, so this isn't too different from that apart from the afterburner bug.

I'm actually looking forward to seeing what will come next, since Taylor said he would be committing a fix for that annoying repeat count bug once 3.67 came out.

Just a warning, you might want to install divx 5 since 6 is being goofy.

Anyone ever tried it with the fddshow filter?
(It's a direct show filter, and AFAIK the movie player is some Dx-8 function(?))

Hm.  This is slightly irregular: no FRED builds, no installer, and no karajorma getting the second post. :p

We may have to post another thread when the installer is updated.

Finally, now we will also see an official Linux release (and maybe get some time to hunt for the memory leaks, because they definteley are, if I replay some mission 5 times at some point it gets over 1gb of memory used when usually it's about 500mb, this with Linux/fs2_open CVS version).

Really?!  Something must have gotten messed up since my last Valgrind run.  Checking now...

Oh and the Linux release will hopefully be out late tomorrow.  The PPC support isn't done and I need the official Linux and OS X versions to come from the same code to keep my like sane.  Plus, I'm including a little something extra for the Unix users. :)
