over a year after the 0.7.3 release, we are proud and excited to announce the release of SuperTuxKart 0.8! We have closed over 230 tickets, and made some significant changes: You can now enjoy a story mode with challenges against a stronger AI, and improved physics with better skidding and collisions. Tracks can be driven in reverse, and we have new music especially composed for SuperTuxKart.
Many many more changes were done, the main ones are:
- Story mode and new challenge set
- Improved AI
- Skidding and better collision physics
- Reverse mode
- New green valley track
- New Blackhill Mansion track
- Updated XR591 track
- Updated Fort Magma track
- Updated Jungle track
- Updated Sand track
- New music
- Updated menus
Head over to http://supertuxkart.sourceforge.net/Downloads to download the game now! Windows and OSX binaries are already available, and Linux binaries should appear in the coming days as packagers make binaries for various distributions.
Finally, as always, don't forget that the forum and mailing list are more appropriate than blog comments for bug reports.
A big thanks to all the people who have contributed to SuperTuxKart, without whom this release would not have been possible (full list in the credits of the game).
