That’s right folks, we’re nearly there! According to the development schedule, all we’re missing to hit that landmark (as of right now) is Cydonia, and to my understanding , that is being worked on as I’m writing.
As we near completion of this development cycle, we have found it necessary to add a further external dependency to the project, the SDL_image library.
By including this, we now have the means to import many common image formats, which opens the door for future modding capability.
What this means for developers: You will need to download and add the extra library to your deps folder in order to successfully compile.
What this means for the rest of us: NOTHING! OpenXcom should continue working in exactly the same fashion as it did before the addition.
