Greetings, everyone.
Slowly, the Ares Extension DLL project has been lumbering forward. While the number of active testers is nowhere near what would be preferred, and the project is still missing an official documentation maintainer, progress has been made.

It has now reached the stage whereby something can officially be released with "0.2" in the name. Please note: This is not the final version of Ares 0.2, and simply calling it "Ares 0.2" is incorrect.

What is being released is the first Release Candidate of Ares 0.2. For any of you unfamiliar with the software development process, a release candidate is pretty much what the name implies - a version which is deemed complete enough that it could be called a "candidate" for the final release, but it may still contain unreported bugs that a final version naturally shouldn't have.

If up until now you've only been working with 0.1P1 (the last officially stable release), then you'll (hopefully) be pleased to know that this version contains hundreds of new additions, improvements and bugfixes over version 0.1P1. I could list them all, but there's a a manual for that.

And of course, you'll be needing a download link:

If no bugs are reported, then this may well become the final version of Ares 0.2 in the future. However, nobody likes a buggy product. If you encounter any bugs while using this, please report them as normal using the tracker on LaunchPad.

Additionally, although it's a publicly-announced release, and although it's got "0.2" in the name, this is still officially an unstable version. As such, only use it in publicly released mods at your own risk - the Ares development team will not take responsibility for the inability of users to read the very clear warnings.

Thank you for your continued patience throughout Ares' development. Things are getting there.

CNC Guild Leader / Ares Project Manager.
