Foundry Virtual Tabletop - Version 0.7.5 Update Notes

Welcome to the Foundry Virtual Tabletop update notes for Release version 0.7.5.

Welcome adventurers, to Foundry Virtual Tabletop release version 0.7.5, the first stable release in the long-awaited 0.7 series of updates. This represents a major update to Foundry Virtual Tabletop, encompassing five months of development and over 500 individual features, changes, bug fixes.

There are two important things that you need to know before updating, so please read this carefully.

WARNING: An unfortunate sacrifice required by the refactoring of dynamic lighting, vision, and fog of war is that your fog of war exploration progress will be reset. For those of you who rely upon fog exploration to track exploration of very large wilderness or mega-dungeon maps, please be sure to take a screenshot or other form of backup for your current fog of war exploration before updating so that you can reconstruct your exploration progress after the update.

WARNING: Version 0.7.5 is labeled as a stable release, but it includes a tremendous number of new features. Some game systems and modules have not yet been updated with compatibility for this new version. You may wish to verify the status of systems and modules that you depend on prior to updating. As always (but especially for a major update like this one) please back up your game data before applying this update.

Major highlights of the 0.7.5 release include, but are not limited to:

Lighting, Vision, and Fog of War
