You can download the latest stable version, 2.4, from our website:

Ufoai.org

If you're on Windows, you might try the development version. It's very stable these days (I'd say maybe even more stable than 2.4) and there have been a huge number of improvements. On the downloads page, look under the "Development (latest)" section for "UFO:AI installer (~1.1GB)".

thx for quich reply !

...i'm on Linux :).. Already checked your website, didin't feel skilled enough to try the source code (I could install the game on my PC using it, isn'it ? Or is it just for developping ?)...Playdeb is offline..That's why I ended playing UFO on Desura !
I guess I was kind of hoping Desura itself would propose updates...seems not.

I forgot to say I'm a huge fan of your work :)...to me the only problem is it's taking to much of my time when I'm in charge of the world defense. Like 'oh f%#@ I played untill 5 AM again !'....
So thank you anyway :)

Thanks lenoirsoleil. We only put stable versions up on Desura, so it should be 2.4 here.
