I'm posting this as a bit of a favour to the distros, since I've been asked by a couple of people already.
So, the main problem with the initial source release was that due to a bug in fpc, 32 bit builds using -O2 or higher were causing weird bugs. We'd encountered this before release in the Windows build, but due to a confusion of the cause, had thought it was due to changes in the Windows build env initially.
0.9.20.1 - This merged the fix/workaround for the bug in fpc, and added some fixes for build problems encountered on OSX and some distro configs. As well as some minor things like a fix for a crasher with "shoppa map" lua + low quality land tex, and some minor optimisations.
0.9.20.2 - This rather hurridly replaced .1 due to rejecting trunk changes causing loss of a line in a file that was needed for the minor optimisations.
0.9.20.3 - This provides some more OSX changes, a small fix for a crasher for mask.png maps taller than 16384, and, more importantly, changes made by the Ubuntu porter trying to get Hedgewars to compile on ARM/Sparc.
0.9.20.4 - This drops some unneeded files from the package (saving 20MiB on the tarball), build system tweaks (including OSX) and includes more changes on the ARM/Sparc front, which was again the reason that triggered it.
0.9.20.5 - This final package appears to fix all the compilation problems on Ubuntu ARM/Sparc.
First off we'd like to thank everyone who contributed to make this fun and exciting new release!

You want it? So go to the download section and grab it!
Linux distros will appear as the packagers are notified (filing a bug with your distro speeds things up).
Some screenshots from the new version for you
A new version of Hedgewars is about to be released, you can help by testing it!
Below are links to download it:
Microsoft Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8: HERE
There is currently a bug in the Windows Release build we are trying to iron out. Please download the FIXED ENGINE and copy it over the hwengine.exe from the prior zip. This should allow playing against Linux.
OSX should hopefully be available in the next few days.
For Linux users of the Debian/Ubuntu bent, see:
Building on Linux for simple copy and paste build instructions that you can use to build any version of Hedgewars, including this beta (other distros are welcome to provide instructions too!).
The fixed hwengine above is against a293a9ecdc82, so for playing against Windows, use: hg up -r a293a9ecdc82
For trying things like the Poison Graves in DLC, or unc0rr's No Gravity script (which is fun in shoppa), latest tip will be needed, but that of course will lose sync against the Windows Beta.
Please don't forget to report any bugs
"Hedgewars 0.9.20 is just around the corner, wait for it..."
