Ember 0.5.5 released

Ember version 0.5.5 has been released and is now available from the WorldForge download site.

Ember is a 3d client for the WorldForge project. It uses the Ogre 3d graphics library for presentation and CEGUI for its GUI system.

This release introduces a new combined minimap and compass widget, many improvements to the entity creator and an upgrade to the cutting edge Ogre 1.6 3d library.


  • a new minimap widget
  • improved entity creator
  • working OSX support
  • more and better entity recipes for the entity creation
  • upgrade to Ogre 1.6
  • many bug fixes

This version can be downloaded from the sourceforge download site, at the following locations:

We currently only provide precompiled packages for Linux, but will provide Windows and OSX packages in the near future.

Note that if you compile from source, you will need to install the content of ember-media-0.5.5.tar.bz2 to PREFIX/share/ember/media or use the “make releasemediarsync” make target.

If you compile Ogre yourself make sure to disable FreeImage (–disable-freeimage).

More information can be found at the Ember site.

All bug reports should be posted at the Launchpad.

Here’s a video of the new compass in action.
