Changelog for Patch multiplayer-4f / GOG-26024 (Windows) / GOG-26026 (Mac) / GOG-26027 (Linux) (added 20 December 2018):

- After several months of testing and improving, we have released multiplayer to everyone - no need to opt in to the beta. Everything you can do in a single player sandbox game can now be done in Multiplayer. We've worked hard to reduce the bandwidth requirements and to increase the reliability - please let us know if you keep having problems!
- Worth mentioning that these game modes are not supported in multiplayer yet: Escape Mode, Warded Mode, and any prisons that require Mods.
- Thanks to everyone who supported us over the years - have a great xmas, and we will see you all in the new year!

We put out another hotfix so your prisoners no longer are making telephone calls from containers of bleach! Also, they are sitting properly at tables!

Standalone installers updated: 03 July 2019.

I call people from containers of bleach all the time!
When you try to change the language, the game crashes. The language can be changed in the configuration file, it works with the German language, but it does not work with the Russian language. See the screenshot. The problem is reproduced on Ubuntu 18.04 and Fedora 30. Latest version Prison Architect 1.02 (30664)

It would be great if the distribution of the game was delivered with the library, These libraries are only available in ubuntu. This is a rare library, and it is not in Fedora and some other Linux distributions.
