I re-tagged the 0.42.0 release to add my last minute RTD changes so that we can have auto-genned documentation from RTD. :)
Do we need to re-build release packages?

No need, just documentation thingies to fix RTD so we have documentation. Nothing to do with OpenMW itself.

@raevol: I didn't have time to complete proof-reading your change log and think about your remaining questions. Sunday, okay?
Sorry I just saw this! No rush, no worries!

To quiet the heretics.
This guy's got jokes. You coming to con this year dude?
To answer this very late, no, I work in Santa Barbara during the summer and couldn't make it down to San Diego this year :roll:

Running through 0.42.0 now, looking for bugs. Release is looking pretty clean so far, guys. So far, just got a crash in the CS after undoing some things, had an issue detecting an existing Steam installation of Morrowind in my C drive (had to manually find it), and the load order is always wrong. Yay bugs!

I'm not sure I understand your formatting here? Should I just remove your comments, insert the intro, and it's ready?

@raevol That's how I understood it.
Pinky: Gee, Brain, what do you want to do tonight?
Brain: The same thing we do every night, Pinky - try to take over the world!

Yep, that's the plan. The first comment is obsolete, if the issues with Linux and macOS versions are still relevant; the other comments contain your questions which I answered in the line above in each case. These need proof-reading of course.
