Release: 22.2.0-RC1
The CI drama that is year 2022 continues...

Major features of note:
Controls6 - International keyboard support and support for LUA scripted controls; from z6455 and BMagu

Multiplayer Rollback and interpolation code got some attention from Cyborg and Taylor.  Now with more intentional bumps and grinds!

PXO stats are now saved to local pilot files.

More sexp container goodness from jg18.

3D line drawing support added in LUA:  Don't just make a breadcrumb path, show us where to go!

Configurable Weapon Lights and Shaders from EatThePath.  More bling for your pew pew!

LuaAI from BMagu.

Timestamps got some new rubbers from Goober5000 and others, so they don't smear as much on the paper anymore.

(#4263) Replace "Always_show_goals" with "Toggle_showing_goals"

Deprecations:
None

Deprecations are a mechanism in FSO where a certain feature or aspect of the engine has changed or is no longer supported. Since this would normally break existing mods we have the mod table feature "$Target Version:" with which a mod can specify what version of FSO it was developed with. The features listed above will be removed or changed when the target version of a mod is at least the version released in this post.

Launchers, if you don't have one already:
All platforms: For every day use, we recommend Knossos, an integrated solution for downloading and launching mods.

Hidden Text: Alternative Launchers • Show
Cross-platform: wxLauncher 0.12.x Test Build (ongoing project for a unified launcher, you should upgrade to the latest RC/test build if you have not yet)
Important: For best compatibility with FSO 3.8 and later you should use at least wxLauncher 0.12.

Windows:  Launcher 5.5g (Mirror) (Mirror) Not compatible with Windows 8+, use wxLauncher above
OS X:  Soulstorm's OS X Launcher 3.0
Linux:  YAL or by hand or whatever you can figure out.

Windows (32/64-bit)
Compiled using GitHub Actions on Windows Server 2019 (10.0.17763), Visual Studio Enterprise 2019

64-bit AVX: fs2_open_22_2_0_RC1-builds-x64-AVX.zip
This one is based on the AVX Optimizations from the MSVC Compiler (fastest build if your CPU supports AVX instructions).


32-bit AVX: fs2_open_22_2_0_RC1-builds-Win32-AVX.zip
This one is based on the AVX Optimizations from the MSVC Compiler.

What are those SSE, SSE2 and AVX builds I keep seeing everywhere?
Your answer is in this topic.
Don't want to deal with that? Use Knossos and it will download the best build specifically for your PC!

Linux 64-bit
Compiled with Ubuntu 16.04 LTS 64-bit, GCC 5
fs2_open_22_2_0_RC1-builds-Linux.tar.gz

These builds use a mechanism called AppImage which should allow these builds to run on most Linux distributions. However, we recommend that you compile your own builds which will result in less issues.
Alternatively, if there is a package in your software repository then you should use that. If you are the maintainer of such a package for a distribution then let us know and we will include that here.


OS X
Not available  We have mac builds on the horizon!  They may be available later in this RC, but they are not a high priority.

Hidden Text: TrackIR Users • Show
Important!!
An external DLL is required for FSO to use TrackIR functions.  The following DLL is simply unpacked in to your main FreeSpace2 root dir.
TrackIR is only supported on Windows.

Re: Release: 22.2.0-RC1
Erm, so we're having technical difficulties with the publishing scripts.  Sometime between last RC and now things broke again, so we're fixing them up as much as our time and sanity allows.

Changelog should be coming Soon(TM).

The builds on github and links here are active, and the RC1 should also be available on Knossos and Nebula.
