As Ogre 1.8 is due end of this year, it is finally time to get the release candidate versions out in the open for general testing to iron out any last quirks before the official release . As a first step we released the RC1 today.
The source code can either be downloaded from our official BitBucket repository or directly from the Ogre Source Download page.
If you should encounter any issues, please feel free to report them on our bug tracker and discuss them in the “Developer talk” forum section. More information can be found here.
Thank you for your support in advance!
PS: A detailed change log will be provided upon official release.
