developmental cycle. Download your free copy here:
One of the primary goals for this cycle (5.17.x/6.0) includes the
completion of 'under-the-hood' architectural changes begun in 5.14.x
and continued through 5.16.x. These changes, though for the most part
invisible to the user, will make way for some long needed changes in
the user experience as work begins on overhauling the User Interface
and the LST Editors. Another benefit of the changes underway as part
of this dev cycle will be a furthering of PCGen's flexibility when
working with the d20 rules system, but will in the end, also make it
easier to adapt PCGen to the myriad rules system used throughout the
On the data front, one of the major goals, beyond adding as many new
data sets as we can, will be the stabilization of the Pathfinder
Roleplaying Game data set, including the Core Rules, published first
as part of the 5.16.x stable releases, and the Pathfinder Bestiary,
scheduled to be released in the near future as an Out-of-Cycle data set.
You can see all of the changes included in this release by checking
