Seemed like a good opportunity to cover your options when you are on linux.
First off, usually your package manager is responsible for this, not the people volunteering to bang code together (although we often end up doing distro tech support too).

Mint is an interesting case. It's loosely based off ubuntu, but without the "App Store" so installing packages is a bit more Debian-y.
Basically on Ubuntu/Mint in order of preference you should use:
1) Official release package if it is up to date
2) Backports/Updates package if it is up to date
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuBackports
https://backports.debian.org/Instructions/

3) https://launchpad.net/~costamagnagianfranco/+archive/ubuntu/hedgewars (PPA by the current maintainer of the Debian/Ubuntu packages)

Debian/Devuan is about the same except (3) is manual and at your own risk.

If all else fails, you can try installing the .debs for the version of Debian or Ubuntu that most closely matches what your distro was derived from, or try our build instructions.

I haven't brought up other distros here, but usually we don't have problems with them. Occasionally with Arch.

RELEASE PARTY TIME!

Big Grin Cake Big Grin Cake Big Grin Cake Big Grin

1.0.0 is here!

GirderGirderGirderGirder

That's right, Hedgewars version 1.0.0 has been released!
Sunglasses!

Oh boy, it has finally happened! It was a long, long journey, but we reached our destination! Version 1.0.0 is a major milestone for this game, as its the first version we find confident to share with a wider audience.

Compared to version 0.9.25, this release contains mostly a cleanup of existing features and bugfixes. Basically stuff you'd expect for a “worthy” 1.0.0 release.

Have fun! Smile

Hedgewars 1.0.0 Beta 1

Cake Big Grin

Version 1.0.0 Beta 1 is out! A couple of players were kind enough to send us bug reports, complaints and small suggestions while playtesting the previous version. So we used this feedback as basis for the changes of this test release. Thanks for everyone who helped with testing so far. Smile

This is still not the official 1.0.0 release yet, just another preview version for testing. This time, we think all the big bad bugs should be gone now. The real official version 1.0.0 will probably not be much different.
