Ember 0.5.6 released

Ember version 0.5.6 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 completely revamped lightning and shader model with real time shadows. It also includes major additions to the authoring interface, along with ingame area editing.
The lightning model is completely new, and we would therefore appreciate any reports on artifacts and problems using different graphics cards.


  • revamped shader model with shadows
  • automatic detection and setting of graphics level
  • real time graphical area editing
  • improved support for multi threading

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

We currently only provide precompiled packages for Linux, but hopefully 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-0.5.6.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.
