Hedgewars Slackbuild is updated to version

I am pleased to announce that the Hedgewars Slackbuild, which I maintain, has been recently updated. Hedgewars is an artillery game in which players take turns in order to move their hedgehogs and blast their enemies using all sort of crazy weapons. The Slackbuild I have recently updated is just a build script that allows end users to easily make a Slackware package out of the source code of the game and install a functional version of the software.

Slackbuilds such as this can be easily used in conjunction with automated package managers, such as sbotools, in order to administrate the software installed in a Slackware system through a ports-like interface.

The new Hedgewars version, numbered, features a fix for a bad crashing book that version 0.9.24, which I didn’t made a slackbuild for. There is also a new weapon and a redesign of some game themes. An important change in the slackbuild is the fact that Hedgewars now depends on QT5, which means that installing Hedgewars from a base Slackware 14.2 system is going to take much longer.
