The anniversary of 0.3.1 AND 0.4-dev

It turns out it has been 1 year since the release of Minetest 0.3.1, and the development of 0.4 was started exactly one year before tomorrow. Cool. 8)

    Happy release-day and happy development-day!

    Is Minetest now what/where you then thought it would be now?

    Lot’s of people have/are and will be enjoying it and there are a lot of mods published and released, especially last few months. I think that’s a considerable succes!

    Topywo: It indeed has worked out pretty good.

    I can’t say I and kahrl thought 0.4 would go where it is now when we designed the basis of it, but we definitely prepared for something like this. Without that, it would’ve been a rockier road. 8)

    Keep up the great work! I would say this is becoming one of the best FOSS games on the web.

    How much things change in a year, and how much do things stay the same! I discovered minetest back in the dev-20120222-2 days, and I haven’t stopped playing since. It’s amazing how big it’s grown and what directions it’s taking now that simple modding is possible.

    *raises glass*

    Here’s to another year of Minetest!
