Concerning the which packages do I need to download question:

I guess the sound-packs are meant for mod-creators, not for end-users? Is patching FO(2) to the US version required? What does happen when you try to load non-US data?

Maybe we should put the answers to these questions in the introduction text at the top of the download section.

Concering boost::bad_lexical_cast

Is that still valid? I assume it is caused by a broken config file? Seems like a quite ugly bug to me.

2007.1 performance

I installed the current release (2007.1) on my small notebook today (500 Mhz, 128 RAM, Fedora 6 + Fluxbox) and the performance was - compared with earlier releases - very poor. It seems that the new mapcode has something to do with it - scrolling maps like chess.xml or the official map need more performance now...

I guess this is a call for profiling work :-) Do we have any valgrind experts on the team?
