MegaGlest 3.7.1 release - come and get it while its hot (svn revision 3948)
Downloads here: http://megaglest.org/download.html or below

Installation files are available on sourceforge at:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/megaglest/files/megaglest_3.7.1/

Linux 32 and 64 bit full and stand alone archives, Windows full and stand alone archives.

Please be aware that there are several mirror servers for sourceforge. After clicking on the file you wish to download you will see a page with fine print allowing you to go to a special page where you can then select a mirror server close to you which has the given file. For example, if you wanted to download MegaGlest-Installer-3.7.1_i386_win32.exe and are from Brazil, you may want to click on said link, ending up on
http://sourceforge.net/settings/mirror_choices?projectname=megaglest&filename=megaglest_3.7.1/MegaGlest-Installer-3.7.1_i386_win32.exe
As a Brazilian, your best choice is probably the mirror server in Brazil, so you would click that one, and restart the download. This time you should get forwarded directly to the brazilian server and thus get a faster download.

Note that we also provide Bittorrent downloads now (click the magnet icons on the download page), this may work better if your Internet connection is less reliable for downloads from far away.

Am I the only one to have problems with this release? I downloaded the Windows installer and tried it on three computers, of different builds and ages, with no luck at all.
Do not ask me for details: I am not asking for help. All I would like to know is if everybody is running this release happily and I am the odd man out.

No install problems on Windows 7 for me, though I had to clear the stuff in %Appdata% manually because the name of my language file had changed.
