The Naev devteam is proud to announce the release of Naev 0.5.0-beta2. This is the second beta and is closer to a release candidate than a beta. We do not anticipate any major issues unlike with 0.5.0-beta1. We prefer to have another beta so the 0.5.0 release is rock solid.

Links are available on the downloads page.

The changelog is as follows:

  • Features
    • All missions reviewed for playability, many fixed and otherwise improved

    Awesome to see this. I’m excited to test this one out!

  • Tested the game in a few missions and is nice to see the names of the pirates that i have to find(in my missions), still the fps drop is present for me but is a bit better and the sound is really cool this time :)
