Antares 0.6.0 Released

By: Chris Pickel On: December 06 2012 In: antares, mac, release

Antares 0.6.0 has been released for Mac OS X 10.6+. This release contains two new features: first, you can now run Antares in a window, instead of full screen. Second, if you have a two-button mouse, you can select target objects with the right mouse button.

Behind the scenes, the graphics engine has been entirely reworked to make better use of OpenGL and GLSL. This should improve graphical performance for most users. However, there is a possibility of compatibility problems. If you see any problems, you can file a bug on Antares’s issue tracker.

Antares 0.6.0 contains several fixes for issues that were present in Ares 1.2.0:

…plus improvements intended to make Antares more maintainable in the future.

Sadly, this release is not compatible with Mac OS X 10.4 or 10.5. If you are still running one of those versions, Antares 0.5.1 is still available.
