Towards the end of last year a development version of a big new version of SuperTuxKart was released that brought a new OpenGL 3.1+ graphics engine and other improvements. The new SuperTuxKart game looks great (especially for being an open-source game) and is now closer to being officially released with now having an RC version out.

SuperTuxKart 0.9 RC

The SuperTuxKart team announced on Tuesday the release of SuperTuxKart 0.9 Release Candidate -- formerly what was going to be called v0.8.2. The game is looking great with its new "Antarctica" graphics engine and many other add-ons. Unfortunately, the networked game-play mode isn't yet in place but is being held off for a future version of the game.
