Ember 0.6.2 released

Ember version 0.6.2 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 adds multiple new GUI features as well as the ability to compile Ember as a browser plugin. A huge part of the new features added are thanks to Peter Szücs and Martin Preisler who both did great work during the Google Summer of Code 2011.

Changes:

  • a new configuration widget, allowing for altering client settings
  • improved conversation flow with NPCs
  • intuitive trading dialogs
  • support for compiling as browser plugin
  • animations and UI polish

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

We currently only provide precompiled packages for Linux and intend to provide Windows and OSX binaries not too soon, as well as browser plugins.

Note that if you compile from source, you will need to install the content of ember-media-0.6.2.tar.bz2 to PREFIX/share/ember/media or use the “make releasemediarsync” make target.

More information can be found at the Ember site.

All bug reports should be posted at the Launchpad.
