    Hi everyone!

    Version 1.1 is basically finished, but before launching it in full, I want to do a little beta test to catch any bugs I missed.

    I am trying to keep this kind of low-key, so I'm just going to be posting about it here... no twitter or reddit this time.

    If you decide to help me out by playing on the beta branch, I appreciate it very much. Thank you!

    To access the current beta version of Stardew Valley (on Steam):
    1. Right click on Stardew Valley in your games library and select "Properties"
    2. Click the "Betas" tab
    3. Click the drop down menu and select "beta" (no password is necessary)
    4. Steam will download the beta version. Stardew Valley should now have a [beta] tag in your library.
    While it's very unlikely that playing the beta version will threaten your save files, I recommend backing them up anyway. Your save files can be found in the" %appdata%/StardewValley/Saves" folder.

    Please use this thread and the report template below (if possible) to report any issues you encounter. Also, make sure to check the list of issues found so far (at bottom) to see if your issue has already been fixed.

    v1.1 changelog:

    New Features
    • Shane and Emily are now available to marry. They each have new events, music, and more!
    • Spouses now have a unique outdoor area and behavior on the farm.
    • You can now choose from 5 different farm maps at character creation. Each map is focused on a different skill area.
      • Standard Farm - The original Stardew Valley farm.
      • Riverland Farm - Lots of water, good for fishing.
      • Forest Farm - Foraging opportunities and a unique weed that always drops mixed seeds.
      • Hill-top Farm - Has a small mineral deposit from which ores spawn, including a unique geode-bearing ore.
      • Wilderness Farm - Bats and Golems spawn at night.
    • "Shed" building... An empty room that can be decorated, filled with kegs, etc.
    • "Mill" building... Can be used to turn wheat into flour and beets into sugar overnight.
    • A new quest that can be started after the Community Center or JojaMart quest arc is complete. The new quest results in a new "magical construction" feature available from the Wizard's Tower. The new quest is triggered when you enter the Railroad area.
    • Added several new locations that are related to the above quest. "Junimo Hut" building (Magical Construction). Junimos will harvest crops within a certain distance of the hut, instantly transporting the harvest back to the hut for you to gather at your convenience.

    • NPC's now appreciate quality level in gifts, but it only has an effect on gifts they "like" or "love".

    • You can now wallpaper the little hallways in your upgraded house.
    • When you beat Journey Of The Prairie King, you can now start over in a harder mode, keeping your upgrades and coins.
    • 2 new "Lost Books"
    • Krobus now sells a "Return Scepter"... a tool which acts as a permanent warp totem to the farm.
    • Giving someone a gift on their birthday will never make your spouse jealous.
    • Pierre now sells a "Catalogue" furniture item that can be used for unlimited free access to all wallpapers and floors.
    • Robin now sells a "Furniture Catalogue" furniture item that can be used for unlimited free access to nearly all furnitures.
    Bug Fixes

    • Grandpa's Shrine should now always properly give the reward for reaching 4 candles.

    • Slime charmer ring should now protect against giant slimes
    • You can no longer tap a stump
    • Fixed Joja Warehouse graphic issue in winter
    • "Check action"-mapped keys should now work to attach bait to a rod.
    • Rain ambient sound should no longer play in Sandy's Oasis under any conditions.
    • Your baby should now be properly born, even if you pass out in the mines on the eve of the birth.

    • Galaxy sword should now be truly unloseable
    • You can no longer lose hay to a hopper because you have no silo.

      I'll leave it to the more tech savvy ones to test this but I'm really excited for all this stuff. The junimo buildings and the furniture catalog are probably my favorites from the whole list. <3 Thanks so much for all your hard work on this game, I have loved every minute of it. n_n

                  Actual Behavior: The description pop up window is behind the back button to return to the main screen

                              Wow. That's some list of new features! Shame about not being able to plant fruit trees off the farm anymore, though-- I was very fond of that as a way of sprucing up the community. Still, those look like some amazing upgrades to the game.

                              Evil shrines? Dark magic? Now, don't be tempting a nascent witch like that, CA. Naughty. I can't /wait/ to try out the magical constructions, though!

                              Thanks for all your hard work, CA!
