Two days ago I updated the whole server to Debian's upcoming stable version 9 alias known as "Stretch". Here are the most important changes:
Debian prepares for the next stable release Debian 9 aka Stretch. I have updated Red Eclipse to version 1.5.8 in Jessie. This will be the last version for Jessie. If everything goes as planned I expect the release of Stretch in April or May 2017. As soon as Stretch is released I will update the whole server and all games to the latest available version.
This will also mark the end of Sauerbraten's "Justice Edition". I finally intend to remove the package from the server. Of course the "Collect Edition" is still supported.
Minetest 0.4.15. was released a few weeks ago. It is now up and running on linuxiuvat.de too. I had to disable the fire and lava protection mod. If you know why it's not working anymore, please send me a patch. :)
I have backported Red Eclipse 1.5.6 to Debian Jessie and the packages are available for download now.
Just add an entry to /etc/apt/sources.list like
deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ jessie-backports mainand install the game with
apt install redeclipse -t jessie-backportsEnjoy.
I upgraded the Red Eclipse server to version 1.5.6 after I updated the official Debian package as well. Unfortunately the new packages are only available in Debian Stretch and Debian Sid and they didn't make it in time to be part of Ubuntu 16.10. For now I recommend to download the sources and recompile the game for your target platform.
