Habitat VersionHistory

From Reno Project


This is a complete version history for the Habitat client, based on internal documentation. It is unknown just how many versions were released outside of the internal Lucasfilm/Quantum Link test group. For reference, Club Caribe used the final Habitat client release and nothing changed clientside besides the intro text being modified and a new title screen being added. Club Caribe did however have some server side changes that were made.

Release dates are exact if a day is given, but if only a month and year is listed, it's a rough guide.

After the release of 6.4, things were stable enough that the development team decided to make the next version a beta version rather than an alpha version and the beta version numbering started from 1.0.
