In preparation for the new PlayerLogger that’s coming in beta7, we will be releasing a stopgap release beta6 in the meantime.
Changes in this release:
- ASM patcher re-written using Sponge’s Mixin library. This is the reason why there was such a large gap between beta5 and beta6. This change can potentially introduce incompatibilities with some mods (Mariculture, AppleCore as of the time I write this), due to Mixin requiring a lot of special hacks and potentially breaking other less well-written ASM transformers. As such, if you notice any incompatibilities with other mods, please let us know on github.
- If you install the FE-core on client, you can also have portals render horizontally. This is just an aesthetic change, and as the FE core binary is rather large (and will be getting larger), modpackers are recommended not to pack the FE-core in their modpacks, just the FE-client.
- The inbuilt IRC bridge is now compatible with twitch streaming
- General fixes and improvements (it’s been almost 80 builds since the last beta release, too many things to name)
To reiterate once again, WorldEdit build 3360 is included with FE and will be extracted on first server start. You do not need to download WorldEdit unless you wish to use a newer version. Also, Forge 1258 or newer is required.
