These are already integrated into the 1.0 branch of the client. I don't know if it was also pushed to the 0.5 branch because I am only following the 1.0 version at the moment.
2. will this become the new official client that everyone will upgrade to?
We can hardly force people to update. In the past we were reluctant to use new features of a new client version when there was a large percentage of users which hadn't upgraded yet (based on the http user-agent string of the client logged by the update server). But in the long run we will urge everyone to upgrade.

Hi,

A bit of time has passed since the call for translators has been made for the 0.5 release.

Only the following issue is preventing us from release the mana client :
http://bugs.manasource.org/view.php?id=273

Is the release course expectable soon?

Best regards.

Hi everyone,

The mana client version 0.5 has been released!

http://manasource.org/downloads

You can read the news to get to know what changed since the latest version.
It is now time to get us a 0.0.30 release with the shiny adamaix wood theme and a beautiful login screeny.

Best regards.

From discussions on irc after testing the new client it seemed to me that the developers were in favor of introducing some necessary functions for the game.
Apparently I was wrong.
The new client is fine to play a warrior or an archer and i am glad that there are no automation functions, but tell me how you think you can play a mage in places such as candor or the graveyard without spells shortcuts.
The functions of the client are unrelated to the real needs of the game and all people will continue (rightly) to use manaplus.
I wonder why you wasted energy in the development of this client if you persist in not wanting to face the reality.

I guess the ManaPlus developers could provide an patch for the original client - maybe they already have.

Hi,

The spell shortcuts are indeed very linked to the tA server gameplay.

The only ManaPlus developer is 4144 who has done an incredible work so far. If you can convince him to provide a patch. I may be able to apply it, taking care of making it enabled for the tA servers line only.

Thus, I'm not alone there, and I'd like to know whether the other devs are ok to apply such a functionality and explain why.
Again, I can do only one thing at a time, so be patient and don't hesitate to recall what I could have forgotten along the path. I'm only human. :)

Best regards.

When you use Mana Plus you are in fact using 0.0.30, because Mana Plus is based on the latest development version of the mana client and not on .29.1.

So all the "energy we spend on the development of .30" also goes into the mana plus client.

"The reality" is that it doesn't matter for the TMW developers if the users use the pure .30 or the .30 with 4144s additions (aka mana plus), as long as people stop using .29.1, because then we can finally use the new features like map backgrounds.

I guess, but I don't know if we still have an Mac-distribution-guy...
The last release was made 1,5 years ago (wth!?, thats what i call LTS :P) so maybe he died or went on ;)

BTW, our last slackware package was 0.0.26, whats up with our slackware loving overqueen ^^

Is there a way the new client can be added on the site under the 'downloads' section? I have a few people who are hesitant to download it, considering its not the official download

Hi again,

I'm pleased to say that a temporary download link of TMW version 0.5.0 is available here:
http://dev.themanaworld.org/downloads/T ... -win32.exe

This link has been made in order to make early users able to test the installation process and provide feedback, but also aiming at updating the official downloads :)

Known issues:
- The app icon isn't the good one when starting (by activating 'Run The Mana World') at the end of the installation.
It is fine otherwise. This also won't be fixed.

Enjoy!

Best regards.

Hi Bertram,

thanks, works fine! :)

The "real" The Mana World server isn't default though.

edit: I don't get why the GermanTMW guys call it..."GermanTMW" :P

Great! :)

Lol, unfortunately, the current system doesn't permit me to provide a default in the server list.

I hope to see the download links updated rather soon.
