All in all, the new release Unknown Horizons 2014.1 provides a more stable gaming experience with new content and a bit of eye candy added as well. As some of you may have noticed already, there are several big changes happening around our engine FIFE right now. As a result of this, some new features (like the color overlays spotlighted above) are only available after a new engine release, or if you're running a development snapshot. There is more work ahead to fully adopt our code to more of those changes, like replacing the currently used guichan library with its FIFE-maintained improved fork fifechan. Look forward to advanced text styling, many new cool widgets (e.g. for in-game statistics) and full UTF-8 support!


Enough with the paperwork - Get Unknown Horizons 2014.1, have fun and let us know what you think! If you spot a bug or notice odd behavior with the new release, please let us know at our bug tracker http://bugs.unknown-horizons.org.
