>not letting us wait for another half-a-year before those 65 remaining issues get fixed
Based on idling about this place for a few years, I'd say expect 1.0 in 2018.
I'd put my money on at least 2020. The number of issues, excluding post-1.0, is still HUEG.

I just was poking around and figured now would be the time I first try OpenMW, after watching the amazing progress over the last few years.

Came across a snag right away though, seems like the (handy-dandy) installation wizard importer is crossing the '/' and '\' of Windows and *nix files systems around a bit, resulting in no directory found and this:
SETTINGAS.PNG (9.84 KiB) Viewed 3630 times
I can browse for it manually and it selects the .ini fine, but I assume I need to poke through the OpenMW config files to get the data directory detection working.

EDIT: Nope, I checked my 'My Games' config, seems to be showing up correctly there. I'm getting the 'Could not find the Data files location' and I have no idea!

Cheers :)

EDIT 2: Final confirmation, I cannot get it to detect anything properly. The wizard sees my install directory effortlessly, and the .ini file does transfer to the openmw config file in 'My Games', it shows the correct file path at the bottom of the config as well, and seems a save file is found, but will not detect data directory and tells me to run wizard repeatedly.

I'm about halfway through the changelog, hopefully finishing in the next few days. I need some help with:
If I understand correctly, this was determined not to be a bug?
Bug #1956: Duplicate objects after loading the game, when a mod was edited

Is this correct for issue 2777?
- Low-value disintegrate over time effects are no longer nullified by high frame rate

Sorry, but I am not technical enough to understand this one:
Bug #3580: Crash: Error ElementBufferObject::remove BufferData<0> out of range

Were these fixed or rejected?
Bug #3601: Menu Titles not centered vertically
Bug #3670: Unhandled SDL event of type 0x304

I don't understand Morrowind scripting enough to decipher this one:
Bug #3671: Incorrect local variable value after picking up bittercup

2777 — I'd say yes, but it's more like: disintegrate effects no longer depend on framerate. However... eh, I dunno.
1956 is a bug. Relevant pull request.
3601 and 3670 were both fixed.
