Trappin what did you do ? Full install?

In case you just updated the binary, a data update is needed too!

They do offer an option to report packages which an upgraded version is available for, though. And anyone can use this option, including you. Just head to https://launchpad.net/getdeb.net/+filebug and create a new bug report with a subject of '[please update] MegaGlest x.y.z' (where 'x.y.z' is the newly released version number), and report that a new version is available and it the existing MegaGlest packages need upgading. The playdeb people will usually take on it within a few days (at least that's how it was for the last three releases) and they are just volunteers, too (so a few days is actually pretty good response time).
So any volunteers to report the update?  :)

Very good release so far!
No known problems yet, beside my misunderstanding of the windows update process ( sorry for that softcoder ).

By the way. I think we need a little break now, too much megaglest lately ...

First of all, I'd like to thank you for providing mirrors and 7zip versions. Those are of great help. Other than that, I got nothing to say. Looks great, though the download gets bigger every time :(, stretching even the school's internet to the limit.

Yep! A lot of German and Russian Press, hopefully more US press later.

MegaGlest needs to be on ModDB :D

Thank you for this game! I'm very happy that it's released the new version. I'll play this game a lot. This is more developed than original Glest and has more features.  ;D

Playdeb is now updated with the latest!

i just wonder why it's only for ubuntu 10.10. i have 10.04 installed and he won't install because of the following missing dependencies:

megaglest:
 libwxbase2.8-0 (>= 2.8.11.0) installed 2.8.10.1-0ubuntu1.2
 libwxgtk2.8-0 (>= 2.8.11.0) installed 2.8.10.1-0ubuntu1.2

is that reasonable, because 3.4.0 runs with those lib-versions on my 10.04 ?

Looks like the maintainer only created packages for the latest release of Ubuntu.  I guess you'll have to use the linux install package found in this thread.

cnet.com says they have 117 downloads of glest per week:
http://download.cnet.com/Glest/3000-7483_4-10421123.html

someone should upload MG it there too, but they sound like only the developers are allowed to:

Yes I've asked softcoder and titi before. Glest is the only 5 star free rts listed there too.
Looks like they are not going to apply though...titi doesn't want to yet because there might be bugs, and I guess softcoder doesn't want to because of his experience with a semi-similar site, Tucows.
and I suppose tomreyn wouldn't want to do it because CNET is also a shareware site too.

I like sites like download.com though. I've had an account there for years, and never had any problems. I've never received ads ever, and the only emails I get from them is the ones letting you know that something you downloaded has a new version out (and this is optional, but I like it). Sure, the shareware aspect can be annoying (particularily when you find the perfect program that you really need, but find out it's just a trial, as well as some programs that lie in about the information they give download.com, such as claiming to be freeware when it's really adware/shareware, though I don't blame download.com for that, it's not their fault. Overally, I think both our forks should appear there. It could really boost downloads and the community (be sure to get some good screen shots!).
