  • Platform support has been expanded to keep SAR in sync with Debian.

New in version 1.3.0 (April 6th, 2011)

  • This version fixes music playing and improves joystick support.
  • Fires and smoke burn more realistically and the graphics (especially terrain) have been upgraded.
  • The aircraft's HUD now displays both the altitude above sea level and above land.

New in version 1.2.0 (March 9th, 2011)

  • This release includes some minor bug fixes.
  • Engine sounds now turn on/off properly.
  • Hector gave us some patches to improve the way humans on the ground work.

New in version 1.1.0 (September 16th, 2010)

  • This release, version 1.1.0, mostly cleans up some compatibility issues. We fixed some compiler bugs, added better joytsick support (thanks to Phil from the Debian project) and we addressed a number of bugs which were reported with some keyboards and video cards. While there aren't any fun new game elements in this version, there are a lot of fixes. So if you tried SAR before and it didn't work for you, give this release a try and let us know what you think.

New in version 1.0.0 (June 5th, 2010)

  • This new version is mostly to polish up some minor issues we found in the previous release. The documentation has been touched up a little and we now include a script, installsardata which will automate installing the Data files. Sound support has been improved and most of the sound controls should work in the Options menu. We've also fixed a few bugs and compiler settings so SAR should now run on FreeBSD.
  • No changes have been made to the Data file, so if you've installed SAR previously, you do not need to download a fresh copy of the Data file.

New in version 0.9.0 (April 11th, 2010)

  • Created random campaign mode, which generates a random SAR mission.
  • Added sarcamp.h and sarcamp.c to the source tree and Makefile.
  • Added code to sound.h and sound.c which uses the SDL_Mixer library. This allows SAR to use either the Yiff sound library or SDL_Mixer library. SDL is preferred as Yiff appears to be discontinued.
  • Added flares to campaign missions on cataline island. Helps the pilot find victims who are hidden in the hills.
  • Victims near the Coast Guard ship should now be drawn as being in the water, not on the water.
  • Fixed reported position of coast guard ship.
  • Fire now sits on top of the land, not under hills.

New in version 0.8.4 (March 17th, 2010)

  • This version contains a few new items: There are five new (non-training) missions. The title screen has been updated with the project's new website address. All of the compiler warnings/errors (from gcc) have been fixed.
