Latest upstream release: 0.9.17
Current version in Fedora Rawhide: 0.9.15

Note that with 0.9.16 (and still in 0.9.17) the hedgewars server uses Text.Show.ByteString which is currently not in Fedora. Either that needs to get added or the code that uses it modified to get 0.9.17 to build.
*** Bug 770982 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
From someone on irc who was unwilling to register for a bugzilla account:
Some other options:
1) Fedora could stop shipping the server, and let people use the official servers.
2) Ubunutu has apparently backported things to 0.9.15. See:
That's not what they have done. They have a patch to the server that eliminates the need for the extra haskel package. However, that's really what we want. I'll take a look at it tomorrow or Monday. If the patch applies fairly cleanly and works (which is what I expect), then I should be able to get a new build out.
Since network play is currently broken, I think this justifies doing updates for F15 and F16.
I have a rawhide build now. It still needs testing before I try to do test builds for F15 and F16.
hedgewars-0.9.17-1.fc15 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 15.
hedgewars-0.9.17-1.fc16 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 16.
Feedback on whether either or both of thse work well for you would be nice. I don't play a lot of hedgewars and probably only going to notice very obvious issues.
