Project Moondance’s StepMania builds are currently available to a small group of beta testers. Eventually, we will make them available to the public, but we wish to get a good amount of work done first. However, if you’re interested in becoming part of the Project Moondance beta team, join us on our Discord server for more information.

There was a code freeze implemented on 1st October 2018 to re-base and quality assure work done since August 14th 2018. Squirrel wished to ensure no regressions were added to the code, and several bug fixes were discovered in this time.

  • Code Freeze: QA Round 1.
