Complete DotA 6.62 Changelog
* Full map rewrite to the new Warcraft 1.24 code architecture
Because of the amount of new code in this patch, I recommend tournaments wait at least a few days before adopting it.
The new DotA version will be released today. This update is a technology update only. While it has no new content, it is a required step that we have to take because it is not possible to update maps on Warcraft 3 after 1.24 patch due to the new code architecture.Everyone please start downloading the latest Warcraft 1.24 patch to play DotA.
I've rewritten most of DotA over the past 1-2 months to the new code base. If everything goes smoothly, this will enable updating to occur normally once again.
Because of the amount of new code in this patch, I recommend that tournaments wait at least a few days before adopting this version.
Thanks to everyone that participated in testing the new code.
