Release Notes: This release features a first addition of an SDL build with internationalization support, and a number of bugfixes and code cleanups in the X11 code. The X11 code is still the encouraged version.
Release Notes: The network code was stress-tested. Problems with SMPF, memory leaks, and double-free were fixed.
Release Notes: The most obvious new features are XILE (XBlast Integrated Level Editor) and the Chat features, as well as background music.
Release Notes: A lot of changes were made since 2.9.14, including bugfixes (for a severe async problem with the central server), code cleanups, and some new and improved features. The package is now split up into different sections, which can be more easily updated at various times. Almost all of them are necessary, except for the sounds and the levels. Without the levels, only playing as a client will be possible.
Release Notes: The TNT branch started as a client/server XBlast rewrite by the original author (Original TNT). Since then, it was continuously improved by different contributors (Enhanced TNT) and the features of the "Enhanced 2.6 (EPFL)" version were merged into it too. Compared to the original XBlast, this version offers many more levels, more bombs and extras, an optional central game play server, a high-score system, and Laola & Looser animations for the characters.
Release Notes: Bugfixes include mouse click handling in menus, slow exit from the game when sound was active, a possible crash when forcefully disconnected, and aborting a request for a player hanging up the game. NAT is now supported for clients.
Release Notes: Use of UDP ports 16169-16973 for connections to clients to avoid problems with firewalls, fixes for the TIME_WAIT problem, a header, and crash on Solaris, support for four joysticks on Linux and searching for LAN games on Windows, and two more rows in the menu layout.
Release Notes: Browsing LAN games was implemented. Random mode for player positions was reactivated. Up to 4 joysticks are now supported under Linux. A bugfix was made in demo playback for 6-player games.
Release Notes: Support for USB joysticks under Linux, level selection for server, and a start on the implementation of browsing LAN games.
Release Notes: Xblast TNT is the next major release of Xblast.
