For the fans out there of SuperTuxKart, an open-source racing game inspired by Mario Kart that's available for countless platforms, the v0.8.1 release is finally available.

SuperTuxKart 0.8.1 is sadly a rather minor update but does have a new racing track, several updated traces, "soccer" and "egg hunt" modes, new karts, Wiimote support, a new SuperTux difficulty level, and other new in-game assets and effects.

More details on the changes for SuperTuxKart 0.8.1 is available from the project's blog announcement. There's also a trailer below. Time to see if the 0.8.1 release is worthwhile for updating the SuperTuxKart benchmarking profile for any GPU/driver tests.
