The Las Venturas Playground bug tracker

posted by Kase on Monday, May the 6th at 3:14 PM


Hello everyone! The Las Venturas Playground development team is proud to announce that our Trac is now open to everyone!

I can hear you asking something like "What's this Trac thing, now?!". Well, Trac is a famous project management and bug tracking system. This means it helps our development team collaborate, sort out bugs and feature requests, and track changes to the source code. We've been using Trac for a long time now, but we've just decided to open it up for everyone, to involve our community in the development process.

But how can it be useful for us players? It is a great substitute for the current LVP Development forum board. Through Trac, you can report bugs which affect Las Venturas Playground and its components, or request a new feature to be added.

Reporting bugs and requesting features is as easy as creating a new forum topic: instead of a topic, though, you create a ticket. Each ticket has its own page, where you can track the progress of its resolution. You can have a look at other tickets and their progress as well.

So, enough talk: log in with your Las Venturas Playground account and try it out yourself!

Las Venturas Playground 8.1.2 is live!

posted by Kase on Wednesday, May the 1st at 11:13 AM


Howdy!

A few days ago, Las Venturas Playground has been updated to 8.1.2. Most of the work was done under the hood, with the goal of giving everyone a better user experience. We've fixed a few minor bugs and rewritten the nickname color handler from scratch.

In the following update, we'll be focusing more on long-awaited bugfixes, while still working on refactoring and simplifying other Las Venturas Playground features.

In other news, we've introduced a brand new commit console in our development portal. This page lists the 25 latest commits (changes to the source code) to Las Venturas Playground. If you're interested in what the development team is working on, this really comes in handy: make sure to check it out!
