WorldsAway VersionHistory

From Reno Project


This is a complete version history for the WorldsAway client. Mac and Windows releases usually happened in tandem, up until WorldsAway 2.4 which was the final true build for the Mac client.

Beta versions and incremental updates will likely be missing unless we get more detailed info to fill in the gaps. The reason for this is that typically, it seems like incremental updates were pushed over the air via the client autoupdater, rather than an upgrade installer. It's possible upgrade installers were also offered, but as of 2022, these have not been located.
