New release (5.5)!
Click here to download. (ModDB link coming this weekend.)

The full list of changes can be found over here. The first thing you'll notice is that we have an actual installer now (thanks Stijn!), which should take care of the ongoing problem of asking people to edit parts of their plus.ini, jcs.ini, etc. files without overwriting the old files entirely. It'll also set up your jazz2:// protocol registration and give .j2l files some context menu options in windows explorer, if you let it.

Besides that, this update is primarily focused on fixes for online servers and improvements to associated network code. Going forward, this new installer exe format should make us more comfortable with smaller, more frequent releases if other important fixes are needed in the near future, while putting off more major stuff for a version beginning in 6 instead of 5.

(Our recurring problem with getting releases to work with Windows XP right away may still be in action. Stay tuned.)
