Attract-Mode Project > Announcements

Version 2.3 Released

(1/10) > >>

After a bit of a hiatus, we are back on track and pleased to announce a new release of Attract-Mode.  This release captures all the various features and bugfixes that have been added to the project in the past 10 months.

Full changelog is below, downloads available at:

A note for Windows users: the default Attract-Mode binary is now compiled as a Windows GUI application.  If you prefer the previous behaviour where Attract-Mode runs with a windows console window, use the "console" version Attract-Mode instead.
