Overview

This document discusses the general development road-map for Future BZFlag Releases.

Features

Individual features may move up or down the roadmap depending on how/when they get done. Entire releases may be pushed up the roadmap or merged depending on how development goes.

2.4 will be the next release of BZFlag and is protocol incompatible with all previous versions. The development goals are listed here BZFlag 2.3

2.4.2 (What was once lost)

2.4.2 will be the first maintenance release of the 2.4.x compatibility line. Its primary function is to fix bugs found in the 2.4.0 release and to include non breaking items that were not ready during the initial release including:
