ScummVM 2.1.2 "Fixing Powerful Windows" is here!

Post by rootfather »

The ScummVM Team is pleased to announce a new bugfix release for the 2.1 series - ScummVM 2.1.2, codenamed “Fixing Powerful Windows”. You will notice that this time, our downloads page page is not exactly extensive. Don't worry, we are not touching ScummVM's (quite incredible) portability here.

ScummVM 2.1.2 is a maintenance release intended for Windows and Mac OS X, providing some bug fixes for those platforms. Since all other platforms are not affected, you don't need to worry about a seemingly missing update for now.

While browsing the downloads page, you probably noticed a new entry there, especially when browsing our website using a PC running Ubuntu: ScummVM is now officially available at the Snap Store! Thanks to the ongoing support of Alan "popey" Pope and Alan Griffiths, the Snap Store release of ScummVM is now on-par with our other Linux releases. Compared to the traditonal way of distribution software on Linux, we have a lot more freedom in terms of new releases using the Snap Store. The moment we release a new version of ScummVM, you will receive it as an automated update.

The ScummVM Snap comes in two flavours. The "stable" channel contains our official releases which makes it a great choice for most users. In case you want to explore the latest and greatest features of our current development versions, simply follow the "edge" channel and get an updated build each and every day! We also have some pretty neat additions to the Snap Package in mind - but more on that later.

Enjoy, and have fun!

Great work! ScummVM 2.1.2 runs on my old Mac with Mac OS 10.4.11 again.

Thank you :D

Any chance we'll get a Windows 95/98 build? I really enjoyed the 2.1.0 release, hope to see it continue.

There is no difference from 2.1.0 on that platform. The changes are touching just the auto-updater.
