The SuperTuxKart 1.1 Release Candidate has big improvements to its online multiplayer support, which was one of the big additions with SuperTuxKart 1.0. Missing features for the Internet play mode have been addressed as well as adding IPv6 support, better synchronization, and a variety of other enhancements.

SuperTuxKart 1.1 has also been working on various polishing to the game, gameplay improvements, user-interface enhancements, a new arena, and improvements for running SuperTuxKart 1.1 on mobile devices.
