  Boson 0.9.1 announcement

Release of Boson 0.9.1, a Real Time Strategy (RTS) game for the K Desktop Environment.

This is a bugfix release, fixing a couple of important problems in boson 0.9

Both the data and the music packages are unchanged, so if you already downloaded and installed them (or maybe the -all package) you need the code package only this time.

Nearly complete changelog (since Boson 0.9):
- Network with kdegames from KDE < 3.2 is fixed
- Minor file format fix, that causes less trouble with network
- Ground texture pixmaps are loaded correctly in the editor
- Factory productions are saved correctly
- Try to find a usable GL font, even if Qt doesn't find any
- Don't crash when using proprietary NVidia drivers and no usable font was found (reported to NVidia nearly a year ago)

You can find a list of hardware and software requirements at
Note that proper 3d acceleration is required.
