This release fixes a number of bugs in Ren'Py 6.14, including:
- A major bug that prevented rollback and save from working for variables that are only updated in python functions.
- Crashes during video and audio playback, especially on Mac OS X.
- The version of zsync used by the updater didn't work on Windows XP.
- Several string encoding problems in the new launcher.
All users of Ren'Py 6.14.0 should upgrade to this release. Windows XP users should download the release again, while users of other supported operating systems can use the launcher to update.
I'm pleased to announce Ren'Py 6.14 "Steampunk Hamster", a release that brings with it many improvements to Ren'Py and Ren'Py development.
Perhaps the largest theme of this release is that the tools we use to make Ren'Py are now the same tools that we use to make Ren'Py games. Along this vein:
The engine proper has also seen many improvements:
This release has seen a huge amount of support from the community. I especially thank:
As of this release, Ren'Py uses github for project hosting.
Due to the change to the new web updater, shift+U updating from previous versions of Ren'Py is not supported.

When first asked to edit a file, the Ren'Py launcher will prompt you to download and install an editor. As this may fail if your Internet connection is unreliable, the editors can be downloaded separately. To install, extract the contents of the editor archive to the Ren'Py directory.
