:announce: Sorry, I forgot to say 0.51.0 release will merge tex-ej01-clean, tex-ej01-ice and tex-ej01-common into a lone tex-ej01 package, so maps relying on them will need a DEPS file rewrite.

The 0.51.0 release will also introduces a res-ambient packages for cool crates and ambient sounds and stuff like that. Currently only some ambient sounds are shipped there but if you use it, please add this package in DEPS file of your map. Currently it ships 30-60HzHum, drone1 and drone2 but basically, if you use any sound from sound/ambient or sound/movers directory please add the res-ambient package in DEPS file of your map even if Unvanquished still relies on tremulous ones since replacements will take places in this package and be removed from the tremulous compatibility archive.

So, if you use sound files from the sound/ambient path or sound/movers path please add the res-ambient package as DEPS to avoid missing sounds in the future, or you can ask me to do this for you if you're a contrib map author. :granger:

In fact I'm not sure if it's a good idea to put the alpha/beta/whatever semantic in version number at all, it's looks to be another metadata to me. And if it were me I would probably just use one number without any dot so nobody would complain about the meaning of minor or major or whatever! :tongue:

By the way I don't want to do anything against someone. Except the 'v.*' versions that can clearly lead to some troubles in the future, we can live with numbers like 'a01' the same way we live with mosquitoes and hurricanes. :tongue:
