New feature: Development Snapshots
« on: September 13, 2012, 04:30:00 PM »
I have added a new section to the website where you can download development snapshots of Knights.

This is aimed at mod developers who want to test out new Lua features as soon as they are added, instead of having to wait for the next official release.

The snapshots can be downloaded from: http://www.solarflare.org.uk/snapshots/

There are two sets of files:
knights_YYYY_MM_DD.zip -- contains latest Windows build. Unzip and double click Knights.exe.
knights_src_YYYY_MM_DD_src.tar.gz -- source code for building on Linux or Windows.

Note: The builds are not done automatically; I have to run a script on my machine to build and upload a new snapshot. Therefore, don't expect to see a new build every day, but I will try to do them as soon as I add new features, so you can get your hands on them as quickly as possible :)

Today's snapshot includes a "kts.GetPlayerName" function which was requested by ImpassIve_rus recently.
