Release Notes

This is from the 0.4 branch of development. Our experimental releases are derived from here.

Return of the Mac

macOS builds are now considered stable. Any still open macOS specific issues can be viewed on our tracker.

There is not much else to this release, sorry. Only bugfixes, adaptions to new environments, fixes to the build system that bring it more in line with standards.

Changes in AppImage Land: Our AppImage files now are signed and support bandwidth-saving updates via AppImageUpdate. They no longer carry their version in the filename because after an update, that would be a lie.

We now support installation via Flatpak for the 64-bit Linux client. Get the stable versions from Flathub; our own repository has those and also carries the usual test builds.
