Foundry Virtual Tabletop - Version 0.6.0 Update Notes

The day is finally upon us, it is with extreme pride and pleasure that I can say Foundry Virtual Tabletop is released!

This release is version 0.6.0, the first Foundry VTT version in the "release" channel which is available to all Foundry Virtual Tabletop license holders.

It's been a surreal journey to reach this point, I will simply say "thank you" to everyone who has supported the project and given me encouragement. I am incredibly grateful and proud of what I have accomplished. I hope you all can see and feel the love that has gone into this work.

Overview of Changes

This release update includes all of the features and changes included in the prior Beta 0.5.7 Update as well as a number of minor changes, bug fixes, and API housekeeping changes.

Please be sure to join me on Twitch later today (Friday, May 22) and tomorrow (Saturday, May 23) for live developer Q&A discussing the release, reflection on the project, and charting out the road ahead.

About this Update

Please read the following important reminder about this update.

This is a full Release build and should be stable for all users. It is recommended for all users to update to this version unless it is immediately before a game session. Even in the case of "release" channel updates, please take care to periodically back up your critical user data in case you experience any issues.

How to Update

To apply this update, return Foundry Virtual Tabletop to the Configuration and Setup page and access the Update Software tab and choose the "Release (Stable)" channel in the dropdown menu. It is recommended for most users to stay on the Release channel for all updates unless you have a specific desire to get Alpha or Beta changes in the future.

If you have a purchased license key applied, you do not need to enter anything into the "Update Access Key" field.

After clicking Check for Update confirm that you are presented with the 0.6.0 update notes and click the Download button to begin the update process. Allow some time for this process to conclude, when it is finished your server will automatically restart (if Electron) or shut down (if Node.js).

Reporting Issues and Providing Feedback

If you encounter issues or have feedback to share, please use one of the following three reporting channels, ordered by preference:

  1. Discord Server: My preferred method to collect feedback is through our Discord server where I have created a dedicated channel for Beta 0.5.7 feedback. If you are able to join our Discord community it's the best way to engage with me directly for feedback.
  2. GitLab Tracker: You are welcome to create issue reports directly in the GitLab tracker here, but please take caution to ensure your problem has not already been reported by checking other open (and closed) issues in the upcoming milestone before creating a new report.
  3. Bug Report Form: There is an official bug report form on the official website. Please go to the following address and select "Bug Report" as your category.

Please stay up to date on progress by following the project roadmap on GitLab:
