This fixes the majority of significant issues and bugs that were on the PTR. We're hearing and getting reports of a bunch of custom maps that broke before are up and dandy again, so that's good news.
In the full patch notes from Blizzard, there is also a list of known issues that should be fixed in later hot-fixes / patches. If there are issues still worth reporting that aren't acknowledged by Blizzard, please report them. Cheers, on to the next ones!
Patch 1.29.1 PTR
Patch 1.29.1 aims to fix a multitude of issues with installation, broken custom maps, and some faults with the editor. It also releases a few changes such as increasing the BNet channel and clan limit to 255. Please test and see if this patch fixes the issues with custom maps, the editor, GB installation, and other bugs!

NOTE: I will edit this thread when 1.29.1 goes live; no need for another thread when this and other hot fix patches releases.

1.29 AND PTR
The wurst team is excited and curious to see what the new PTR changes will mean for the wc3 modding community. We are anticipating the release to the stable battle.net realms, and will add support to the wurst toolchain as soon as possible.
At this time, we do not plan to have a separate branch to support PTR installs. However, if the classic team continues to make extensive use of the testing realm, we may consider that option in the future.
We are actively thinking about what the PTR changes will mean for us and how it should affect 2018's timeline. For example, now that 24-player maps are coming, we will prioritize support for editing map player metadata from vscode.
We are quite a bit late with our blog post this month, as there were no major updates to present and we were focusing on quality work as well as keeping an eye on Wurst's stability. That being said, in march we revamped the lambda syntax for more flexibility and cleaner code. Additionally we again have received a number of contributions from the community.
- Type inference plus new block handling for lambda expressions and closures
- We resolved several opened issues (#44, #45, #48) and merged 7 pull requests (#47, #49, #50, #51, #51, #54, #55, #56) for the standard library.
- The Wurst Setup received several stability updates and we are working on further integration with the wurst tool suite.

Hey everyone! As most of you guys know, Patch 1.29 is still in the public testing phase. For those who don't, the thread detailing the insane changes (24 players supports, tons of new natives, balance changes, world editor limits raised, true widescreen, etc) is here: Warcraft III - Patch 1.29 PTR
You will also find the download link linked on that thread.
Today comes with a significant update that comes with many bug-fixes, but other changes and adjustments were made to the melee and modding scenes as well.
• Camera reset to 1.28 height
• Team colors revision v2. Props to @Erkan for setting us on the path (Erkan's post on the Hive color thread)
• Ladder maps cleansed of sneaky tower locations near starting mines
• Blademaster, Shadow Hunter, Dreadlord, Demon Hunter, and Priestess of the Moon have been adjusted.
• World Editor limits raised for reals
• Neutral Units - 2,048
• Neutral Buildings - 384
• Player Units - 4,320
• Player Buildings - 2,400
