There are two new versions of supertux, which are 0.5.0 and 0.5.1 and haven't had categories for a while. We now have to work out whether categories should be made because a 0.5.0 run has been submitted. Categories weren't previously made because of the "Development Version" message that shows on the title screen of these versions.

Things We Know:
- 0.5.0 is slower to run than 0.4.0 (from testing so far) but does have some significant changes
- From my knowledge, no one has done testing of 0.5.1 for the speedrun
- 0.5.0 runs have historically been disallowed from the 0.4.0 category
- The 0.5.X line seems to still be in development, as evidenced by the 0.5.1 release, so making new categories for each version could make many categories which are unnecessary due to this development.

So, what should we do about this?

They are very similar. I tried submitting one ages ago from 0.5.0 and got rejected. There is a moderate difference in one level with a door (I hate the secret). I'd just group into into Milestone 2 (gets shot by the devs) even if milestones don't officially exist.

And I hope this isn't a 51% rule over the 49%. There needs to be real discussion to what is best.

For me we should have a category for 0.5, and only allow one version in there, probably 0.5.1, as it was a bugfix for 0.5.0.
But it seems runs from 0.5.X have already been accepted in the 0.4.0 category so it’s a bit too late :-/

You accepted a lot of 0.5.0 runs to the 0.4.0 category it seems, so the category should be renamed and the rules updated to make it clear which versions are accepted.

By the way the Yeti is a lot harder to fast kill now, it seems it’s impossible with a small tux :-/

i used big tux and i scored a 6:53 but no record 🙁 i try replace of course.
big tux we get be default ending nolok castle so IMO it can be used.

With big tux it is easy; you get that anyway. I allowed that run as a result. But someone else may disagree...

Possible!
