1.9 Release
« on: April 21, 2013, 07:22:44 PM »
The 1.9 patch will be released asap.

I'll list everything here that we intend to include in the 1.9 patch and indicate when each item is fixed.

1. All known bluescreens.
    a) [Fixed] Top view map bs (2)
    b) [Fixed] Networking bs (2)
    c) [Fixed] Zones screen bs
    d) [Fixed] Ambient sound block update bs

2. [Fixed] Require Edit permission to change block textures / keys / teleport channels / paintings etc.
    Permissions have been changed. See here: http://totalminerforums.net/index.php?topic=810.0
    Player permissions are now remembered across sessions.

3. Conversion problems (so don't delete your old maps if they have problems, the fixes may also fix yours).

    b. [Fixed] Locked items.

4. [Fixed] Kicking bug.

6. [Fixed] All known dup glitches.

7. [Fixed] Regular FPS drops/pauses on converted worlds (if I can find the problem in time).

8. [Fixed] Block edit/place lag (if I can find the problem it in time).

9. [Fixed] Furnace bug.

12. [Fixed] Owner can't stock gold in a player owned block shop.

13. [Fixed] Mobs not spawning until the following night if a world is loaded during the night cycle.

14. [Fixed] Map property corruption. e.g. changing from Dig Deep to Creative or map properties becoming corrupt.

15. [Fixed] Mob sound glitch (when despawning) and despawning into caves.

16. [Fixed] Indian Mob skin replaced.

17. [Fixed] Max book count should have been set to 128, but was set to 4 by mistake. (only books with writing in them count).

19. [Fixed] Collision bug - Death walking on Stairs/Slabs etc.

20. [Fixed] Map markers now propagate to all machines.

21. [Added] Teleport to Player, Teleport to Map Marker (Creative / Admin only).

22. [Added] A few other minor tweaks, like ducks now drop feathers, saplings/dirt available on Desert Survival (for Legendary), an Easy mode added (no boom arrows on Survival), + some others.

23. [Fixed] The current season is now saved correctly.

24. [Added] Zombie unlockable.

Due to XBLIG peer review submission rules, the earliest I can send the 1.9 patch into peer review is at:

My time: Thursday 6:00pm

My time here now is: Tuesday 6:00pm

So I can submit the patch in 48 hours from the time of this post.

Once the furnace bug #9 is fixed, we will test for a couple more days and tidy up anything else we find, then submit to peer review. That should be no later than Sunday/Monday. So we are hopefully looking at a 1.9 release around the middle of next week.

Nb. The 1.9 patch is obviously not fixing all known bugs, just the ones I deem serious enough to require an immediate fix (and am able to fix quickly). And there will be no new content in 1.9 (except the permission revamp).

What that means going forward after 1.9 is that future releases after 1.9 will be smaller and more frequent. They will include some bug fixes (prioritized) and some new content. So it's going to take a few releases before we can fix all the known bugs created by 1.8, and before the Survival game mode is considered 'complete'.

I have a build here now which I'm confident can be submitted to peer review.

I'll just do a few more hours testing then submit it.
