The PCGen Team is pleased to announce that PCGen v.6.09.05 (Alpha) has been released.
What’s new for v6.09.05
PCGen v6.08.00RC6 is released as a ALPHA from our development branch. Some notable changes in the 6.06.05 release are listed below.
- Continued work on UI changes – Java Swing converting to JavaFX
- Many Bug fixes
- Updated the Release Process (Not Version Controlled)
Java 11 aka Java 55 aka 18.09 or 18.10. PCGEN 6.09.05 is not compatible with Java 10 (or earlier) and it is NOT SUPPORTED. PCGen is tested with OpenJDK, but any Java 11 from any source will be fine. Windows users: The WINDOWS INSTALLER version of PCGen comes with embedded Java JREs for both x86 and x64 Windows OS’s. LINKS:

- How to “Install” the real JDK 11 on Linux Ubuntu – https://dzone.com/articles/installing-openjdk-11-on-ubuntu-1804-for-real – SIDE NOTE: Ubuntu made a conscious move to actually leave Java at 10. The work around is to use AdoptOpenJDK 11.

After six months of waiting, I’m glad to see this finally release! Thanks for keeping this going despite everything!
Hi folks. A long, long time user (from v2.6.6 or so) and so, so grateful for your wonderful project which is one again underpinning my current D&D 3.5 campaign.
Was very sad to see – but understood – the going archive post, but here’s a release. Does that mean someone stepped up?
We can always hope 🙂
It’s mostly book releases at this point, coders are hard to find.
So does that mean that this release is mostly stable, and that I should be using this instead of the stable release?
We try and make sure that any beta releases are as stable as possible. It’s usually just the first couple of version releases after a major release that are problematic.
Has anything been happening since February of last year?
There’s been some slow code changes, and more data additions. We might have another release first part of this year. There’s been some critical bugs introduced with the release process that are being worked on.
Is there a chance german will be available as a language to choose in PCGen v.6.09.05?
localization is something that is beyond our current resources.
