About 6 months following the initial SuperTuxKart 0.9 series launch, which incorporated a new rendering engine into the game, a new stable version of STK is now out.

New tracks has been incorporated both to its core and “gift” version – a version that’s offered to people who donate [or donated in the past] to the development of the game.

For instance, Candela City track which was heavily inspired by various real places was added to the gift version, while Carnaval del cacao track, previously featured in gift version, was added to core.

Of course, all the tracks offered in the gift version will also be available in future core versions as well, as promised by STK developers themselves.

Beyond new tracks there’s also improvements to audio handling and an introduction of scripting

“you want monkeys to throw coconuts when the karts are coming closer, now you can do this”

“this will allow track designers to include little scripts which are executed by STK to make tracks more dynamic.”

Lastly, a plethora of bugfixes was included in this version as well as small tweaks and polish. For example:

The ability to change the direction of arrows (indicating in which direction to drive) when a track is driven in reverse, or, the underwater landscape that has been improved will now enable you to spot fishes swimming in underwater ruins.

Get SuperTuxKart

As you may already know, STK is a cross platform game that runs on Linux, Windows and Mac.

Linux users may want to wait for their distributions to incorporate the latest version in their repositories (time depends on distro / package maintainers).

Alternatively, all platform users may download it via the official STK website.
