OpenRA 20150614 has been released, including over 300 commits.

As you may know, OpenRA is an open source project that recreates the Command & Conquer games: Tiberian Dawn, Red Alert and Dune 2000.

Recently, OpenRA has reached version 20150614, which has received over 300 commits from 25 different developers:

“With about 22500 changed lines in just over 300 commits by a total of 25 developers since the last release, the list of new features is naturally a bit shorter than last time around, but it contains some good ones! The standout feature of this release is of course the long-awaited in-game map editor. For the first time ever, we are offering a map editing ability for all our mods, on all supported operating systems,”

For information about this release, see the official announcement.
