Foundry Virtual Tabletop - Version 0.7.4 Update Notes

Welcome to the Foundry Virtual Tabletop update notes for Beta version 0.7.4.

Overview of Changes

This update focuses on continued and ongoing improvements to the Lighting and Fog systems with 9 amazing new lighting animation effects, further integration of Active Effects system with editable sheets and Token status effects, and brings more than a dozen changes focused on improving the user experience and UI of Foundry VTT over all. 0.7.4 is intended to be the last beta update in the 0.7.x series, with 0.7.5 stable intended to release in a little over a week on or around October 21st.

Important Note: Beta channel releases have the potential to introduce breaking bugs that may be disruptive to play. These features are close to ready for a stable release - but likely to still include some bugs and incompatibilities which may frustrate you.

As a beta channel update, trying out the 0.7.4 version is a good choice for module and system developers who want to prepare their systems and modules for the upcoming stable release version of 0.7.5. It's also a good choice for game-masters who don't rely on a large number of modules who want to try these latest features in their games and can be tolerant of a few issues during play.

How to Update

If you wish to apply this update, return Foundry Virtual Tabletop to the Configuration and Setup page and access the Update Software tab and choose the "Beta" channel in the dropdown menu. Please note, it is recommended for most users to stay on the Release channel and wait for updates there rather than using Alpha or Beta updates.
