New Development Snapshot 0.47.17 (RC3) for Megamek, MegaMekLab, and MekHQ
#1
Hi Everyone,

We are pleased to announce the release of Release Candidate 3 for the 0.48.0 Stable. If all goes well we are hoping for new stable to be out by Mid March. Then we'll start into the 0.49.x Development cycle. 

Just a heads up when we hit that milestone we'll be moving all three of the programs to Java 11. This means you'll need to update Java to run in the next development cycle. Lots of players are starting to update and we've got a wiki page to help. Players with high DPI and 4k monitors have noticed a big improvement using Megamek after updating. We'll provide more details on this when we hit the development cycle.

There are also some great video tutorials for Megamek available here.

As always when using a Development release.
1)  Make backups of your campaigns and customs.
2)  Always treat each release as a stand alone release and only copy your data forward from older versions.

Megamek
Bug fixes is the name of the game. Also a lot of data fixes and a couple of surprise early additions.

MegaMekLab
Bug fixes.

MekHQ.
Bug fixes.

Also a reminder to drop into the Slack channel to meet other players and harass the Devs that drop in and out. If Slack isn't your thing check out these Discords with Megamek channels - Everything BattleTech and Classic BattleTech

**FOR MAC USERS**
We think we now have a workaround for Macs.  See HERE for details.

Another reminder when moving between versions:
1)  Make backups of your campaigns and customs.
2)  Always treat each release as a stand alone release and only copy your data forward from older versions.

There is a good chance you’ll have issues in MekHQ with unit name changes.  If you get errors loading your campaign as result of unit name errors please see this post. Name Issues with units

The change log below lists all the changes in this release from the previous stable.
