The TORCS test release "1.2.3-bw-unofficial-test4" is available for download. The major changes against test2 are that it compiles now on Windows and the smaller size, have a look at the changelog for details. For the Windows users there is a binary available. Be aware that some included artwork has non free (in the GPL sense) licenses, you will find a "readme.txt" in those directories. The rest is either licenced under the GPL or the Free Art license. For those who have downloaded an earlier test release there is a diff available.

It would be nice if people could retest bugs and try out different combinations of libraries (FreeGLUT, GLUT) and configure switches. Interesting would be as well if TORCS now compiles and runs on 64 bit platforms (AMD64) and still works on PPC. Bye, have fun,
