Latest News:

  • FreeOrion 0.4.9 has been released - Windows and OSX installers are available on SourceForge and on GitHub. Linux users can use the snap package we provide on snapcraft.io, or acquire from your distribution if available (which might not be the case as FreeOrion still depends on Python2 which will no longer be supported by many distros). If neither is possible, Linux users will need to build from source. Source tarballs are available from GitHub (please use the source tarball file with version and build number in the filename, not the links automatically created by GitHub). See the Compile page for more instructions. See this post for release notes. Vezzra 16:00, 9th February 2020 (UTC)
  • Release candidates of FreeOrion 0.4.9 are now available! - After a lot of delays we can finally provide release candidate builds for 0.4.9, available on SourceForge for Windows and Mac OSX. Testing and feedback on the forums for these candidates are appreciated. Vezzra 16:40, 13 January 2020 (UTC)
  • Forums back to normal - We have been able to put some countermeasures in place that allow the forum to operate normally again. Vezzra 15:55, 17 November 2019 (UTC)
  • Forums down - Due to excessive bandwidth usage from hundreds of simultaneous unregistered accounts, the FreeOrion website forums are currently not accessible. Development-related discussions are still ongoing at GitHub. Geoff the Medio (talk) 06:52, 24 October 2019 (UTC)
