Hey Linux lovers,

The OpenMW team is proud to announce the release of version 0.12.0! Release packages are available on our Download page. This release notably includes NPC and Creature animation, though no A.I. has been implemented, so animations must be activated through console commands. Please review the following:

Important notes:

- If the data path is set manually and it contains spaces, it needs to be put inside quotation marks.


- Various rendering fixes and optimizations
- Refactored engine class
- Automatic package building
- Various build fixes and cleanup
- Various configuration fixes and cleanup, including detection of existing Morrowind installations
