TORCS version 1.3.4 released
TORCS version 1.3.4 is available for download. The most important changes are reworked tracks (e-track-3, wheel-1 and dirt-2 totally reworked, check those out, loads of new textures) and toolchain improvements (many fixes and ability to create racelines). Additionally many tracks got improvements, new racing rules have been added, timewarp mode goes now up to 128 times real time, running TORCS under Valgrind is directly supported and many little things have been fixed/improved. Hit Read More below to review the full set of changes.
Although it is called 1.3.4 it is a big release, so if you like TORCS you should get it (the version just denotes internal module compatibility). Thanks to the people which helped with bug reports/patches, these are Paletta, Dan Nace and Greg Duncan. Thanks to Steven Skiena for the permission to include stripe into the Windows installer.
If you are interested in the list with the available packages or the changelog hit the Read More link below. In case you run into trouble have a look into the FAQ, there is as well a section about how you should report a problem. If you like TORCS and think you can write a better AI meet us here.
I hope you will enjoy this release.

40 laps on Corkscrew
I found that there is not much manually driven TORCS footage on the web, so I ran 40 Laps on Corkscrew and captured videos of them.
I used vanilla TORCS 1.3.4-test1 with no custom car setup whatsoever, so I run the same thing you got from the shelf.

This is not related to TORCS, but today the CERN announced interesting findings. Maybe this is one of the rare moments during our lifetime where the horizon of mankind gets extended, so do not miss the moment (of course this is the result of a very long process, but I mean the moment of announcement).

TORCS version 1.3.4-test2 available (source package and source patch)
TORCS version 1.3.4-test2 is available, as patch against the 1.3.4-test1 and as all-in-one source package, get it here.
This release adds support for Valgrind runs, and has lots of memory leaks fixed (beware, for the ordinary users there were no significant leaks, but during development it is annoying if you get spammed even with practically irrelevant leaks by Valgrind, so for further development it makes sense to clean this up). TORCS has no "definitely lost blocks" (caused by TORCS) anymore in the ordinary running path, I reduced as well the "still reachable" count (the console mode is even there almost clean).
For details about running TORCS under Valgrind have a look at the README file. As usual, hit Read More below to review the full set of changes. Please test this release very hard, because it is easy to introduce errors when fixing memory leaks. After having done the boring stuff, I will start now working on the feature part of 1.3.4.

TORCS version 1.3.4-test1 available as patch
TORCS version 1.3.4-test1 is available as patch against the 1.3.3 all-in-one source package, get it here.
This is an intermediate release (so 1.3.4 will not follow too soon), but it is a tad better than 1.3.3, hit Read More below to review the full set of changes.
