Project news

  • 13th May 2017 - Freeciv 2.5.7 is a minor bugfix release in the stable 2.5 series.
  • 16th Apr 2017 - Gna!, which has been faithfully hosting the Freeciv code for nearly 12 years, is expected to shut down soon. This website is unaffected and we have already moved downloads to new hosting, but we expect some interruption to some other project infrastructure (code version control, bug tracking, and mailing lists). We are in the process of making alternative arrangements; all important project data is already safely backed up. Watch this space for more detail.
