For those of you on Windows who want to try out the latest revision of BZWorkbench (the map editor that has been created over the course of two Google Summer of Codes), then I have a binary package up. There’s no installer – it’s just a zip file containing the files. This is built from the stock SVN revision 20544 code. You will also need the Visual C++ 2008 SP1 runtime, which I have linked below as well.

There’s probably still lots of issues with it, so please report them to the official BZFlag bug tracker. Also note that as of this revision, building BZWB on Linux and OSX doesn’t seem to work.
Is this rated for XP? It works on my vista system, but my map is on the xp system. And I don’t really want to swtich back and forth just to test the map.
Yes, it will run on XP just fine. That’s the OS that I compiled and tested it on.
if its just the files how do I run it?
You extract the ZIP file and then you run BZWorkbench.exe
