Release notes 

The Widelands Development Team is proud to announce the immediate availability of Widelands Build 21. Widelands is a free, cross-platform economy strategy game in which players control the fate of a small tribe that can grow into a big empire, in a style of play that is unique in the open source world. Please visit our homepage at https://www.widelands.org to learn more.

Since the release of Build 20, we implemented several hundreds of new features and bugfixes, for example:
- A much stronger AI
- New “Peaceful Mode” and several new starting conditions
- More detailed user controls for game speed, map scrolling, and many properties of building windows; new hotkeys; re-added quick navigation with ‘,’ and ‘.’; partly redesigned and modernized user interface
- Allow the player to choose the soldiers to send in the attack box
- New planning-ahead ship scheduling algorithm
- Ferries carry wares over waterways
- Improved display of work areas
- Changing settings for buildings in the constructionsite
- Spritesheets and mipmaps provide high-quality graphics when zooming in
- Numerous fixes and improvements to the tutorials and scenarios
- New editor tool to resize the map
- Lots and lots of balancing tweaks to all tribes
- Extensive behind-the-scenes source code cleanup and refactoring
- Support for Big Endian architectures

Widelands is translated completely into Catalan, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, Scottish Gaelic, German, Low German, and Spanish; and the translations for 9 other languages are more than ⅔ complete.

Widelands is distributed for Windows (64-bit and 32-bit) and Mac OS X >= 10.7 (Intel, 64-bit) and in source code. We no longer ship binary Linux packages because of the poor compatibility between Linux distributions. Instead, we try to make compiling for Linux users as easy as possible. Also, most distributions will pick up Build 21 into their repositories very quickly, and we provide a PPA for Ubuntu users. Both binary and source packages are available from http://launchpad.net/widelands/build21/build21

If you like what you see, please visit our homepage, widelands.org. You may also want to check the forums and our IRC channel, #widelands on Freenode, to arrange multiplayer games with other players.

We especially welcome every helping hand: help us find bugs, translate the game, add new scenarios or features!
