We know that there are a lot more projects. Let us know if you want to be listed here as well.

Old stable release (0.50)

We released MPF 0.50.21 and MPF-MC 0.50.8 with bugfixes and backports. It will be maintained for a while with bugfixes. However, upgrading should be fairly easy for most people so don’t expect maintainance for more than a few more month. Let us know if you got troubles upgrading.

We released MPF 0.51.1 and MPF-MC 0.51.3.
