    Updated 2012 - 2013 Release Schedule

    Dateline September 6, 2012, USA

    After much ponderation, I have concluded that there is absolutely no way that we are going to 'finish' the Circle of Eight Modpack by December of this year. Therefore, the development/release schedule is being extended into 2013, to include versions 7.5 through 8.0, with releases coming approximately every two months and 8.0 coming on September 16, 2013 - exactly ten years after the original US retail release of ToEE in 2003. Modular releases like this seem to work better for us than large, infrequent, monolothic releases.

    The estimated release schedule is as follows:

    • 7.5.0 - October 28, 2012
    • 7.6.0 - December 30, 2012
    • 7.7.0 - February 24, 2013
    • 7.8.0 - April 28, 2013
    • 7.9.0 - June 30, 2013
    • 8.0.0 - September 16, 2013
    You can also refer to this handy release calendar.

    calendar.jpg

    During this development cycle, you will see, among other things: the remaining major NC expansions (Hickory Branch, Arena of Heroes, and Moathouse Respawn) moved to the Verbobonc chapter of the game and rebalanced for higher levels; the updated user interface implemented; dolio's spells overhaul integrated; new content end slides added; the hopeful end of both lag and jerkstop; bugfixes; tweaks; some other new stuff.

    As of now, Co8 v8.0.0 is being viewed as the 'final' version of the Co8 modpack, and will effectively represent ten years of modding, improvements, and additions by countless contributors from Co8. After that, who knows?

    As always, stay tuned, thanks for playing, and we hope you enjoy the mod. :)

    Extended Delay for v7.9

    Dateline July 7, 2013, USA

    After some consideration and community feedback, we've decided to push back the release of v7.9 two additional weeks to July 21, 2013. This is mainly due to wanting to properly finish the revamped higher level shift of Hickory Branch, which is proving to be labor intensive.

    Thanks for bearing with us. :)

    v7.9 Now TBA

    Dateline July 25, 2013, USA

    With the passing of the latest release date with no modpack (apologies for that - we hate missing deadlines), Co8 7.9 is now being moved to 'to be announced' status. This is for a combination of reasons, most prominently lack of sufficient time to work on it and a larger workload than expected.

    Rest assured that TBA does not mean months or even weeks down the road; it will probably be only a matter of days.

    Thanks for your patience. :thumbsup:
