The final 4.20 version is out ! Timo had prepared a text for you, but he's not here tonight to post it (yes, the release was planned yesterday, but we fall in a so called 'last-minute' bug ). So let him talk :
This release took a while to go final as Fred explained in the last beta announcement,
but now it is finally there and it will be full speed ahead for 4.30
So without further due, here is the changelog:

The documentation should be up to date for all languages so have a look there for
more information about the new features.
Roadmap to 4.30:
The work on the promised Ogre update has already started and will continue on full speed now.
This will be the big focus of the 4.30 release. (apart from maybe some surprises from my side, who knows ? )
Apart from that, the Windows x64 and OSX x86 versions are comming along well,
and will enter the private alpha phase quite soon.
With some luck, there will be a 4.30 for these systems as well.
So far so good. Have a lot of fun with this release!
