Radiant 0.6.8 - Incise Release

Posted by Sean Cribbs on Sunday, July 27, 2008 | |

Radiant 0.6.8 “Incise” adds a number of new features that enhance support for extensions and complete the project’s move to github. Of special note are:

This should be a seamless upgrade for users of 0.6.7 and should require only minor adjustments for versions 0.6.5+.
