Foundry Virtual Tabletop - Version 0.6.1 Update Notes

Welcome to Foundry Virtual Tabletop Update 0.6.1

Overview of Changes

This is Foundry Virtual Tabletop Release version 0.6.1, a update on the "Beta" channel which is available to all Foundry Virtual Tabletop license holders. The Beta channel contains updates which are close to ready for release, but may still have some minor remaining issues present. If no meaningful issues are encountered in the next several days these changes will be available on the Release channel (as version 0.6.2).

This update was originally intended to go directly to the Release channel, but due to a few compatibility issues which were detected (and since resolved) it will be held on the Beta channel.

This update focuses on bug fixes and user experience adjustments that improve the release 0.6.0 version. There are a handful of new features included as well which are deemed unlikely to introduce any issues or breaking changes.

Please see the recent Developer Q&A broadcast on Twitch for an overview of these changes and a demonstration of them in action.

About this Update

Please read the following important reminder about this update.

This is a Beta channel update which should be stable for all users, but may contain some module conflicts or compatibility issues. It is only recommended for users to update to this version if they are comfortable with accepting some minor risks. Users are discouraged from updating to this version if it is immediately before a game session. Especially if you are on the alpha or beta channels, but even in the case of release channel, 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.

After clicking Check for Update confirm that you are presented with the 0.6.1 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).

Since the EULA was updated in this version you will be prompted to accept the new license agreement after the update is installed.

Reporting Issues and Providing Feedback
