Release Notes: This is a bugfix release. It fixes a problem where the interpreter was not able to create savegames on some systems. File handling should now be fully internationalized. File paths and filenames (saved games, transcripts, game files, etc.) should now work in any language on all systems. The TADS 3 VM no longer produces the same sequence of random numbers every time the interpreter is launched. For those of you who like to build QTads from source, you can now build it against Qt 5. The released binaries will still be using Qt 4 though, since it's well tested.
Release Notes: This release updates the TADS virtual machines to 2.5.16/3.1.2.
Release Notes: This release updates the TADS virtual machines to 2.5.15/3.1.1. It comes with an application icon for Mac OS X and Windows. On OS X, it registers the file types it can open and provides icons for them.
Release Notes: This is a bugfix release: Games could not create new files and would print a "file operation prohibited" error, even if the write permission setting in the preferences was set to permit that. On Mac OS X, some fonts (like "Garamond Premier Pro") could cause the interpreter to crash. The application would crash often on Windows XP systems. Games sometimes were unable to find their data files. MIDI music looping should now work correctly on Mac OS, instead of playing just once.
Release Notes: The TADS virtual machines have been updated to 2.5.15/3.1.0. A "soft scrolling" option is now available in the configuration dialog. On Mac OS X, text positioning could be off by a few pixels in some circumstances; this has been fixed. The confirmation dialog that appears when trying to restart or quit a game can now be disabled. File I/O safety levels can now be configured separately for read and write access. An online update check is now performed when the application starts (but the behavior is configurable).
Release Notes: Bilinear filtering is now used when scaling images. The Game Information dialog now supports cover art images and all "Treaty of Babel" attributes. The list of recently played games now lists games by their name. The file I/O safety level is now configurable. A bug that resulted in some games using wrong fonts was fixed. A rare crash that occurred when entering non-Latin characters was fixed. Other minor fixes and enhancements were made.
Release Notes: Page-pauses (a.k.a. "MORE" prompts) now occur when the game displays more content than will fit in the window. Banners can now have borders. Rendering is now faster and performs fewer drawing operations. The interpreter is now able to perform an on online check for new versions. On the Mac, running a game by dropping its file on the QTads icon is now supported. Various other bugfixes and enhancements were made.
Release Notes: A crash at exit after playing MIDI music was fixed. Correct bg/fg default colors are now used for text-grid banners. Accented character input glitches were fixed. A problem in which games could not display dialogs with buttons was fixed. Game files may now be dragged and dropped into the interpreter window.
Release Notes: This is a bug-fix release. Digital sound fade-in, fade-out, and cross-fades should work on all platforms. MP3 and WAV audio that uses odd sample rates should not be played at double speed anymore. You can now input text in any language. Decoding of MP3 audio on Windows is not extremely slow anymore. The character set used for TADS 2 games is now configurable. Also, a memory leak which would not free audio data has been fixed.
Release Notes: This major version offers multimedia capabilities (HTML TADS) and is based on Qt version 4. Some features have been left out during the rewrite, but will be reintroduced as development progresses.
