The PennMUSH devteam is pleased to announce the release of PennMUSH 1.8.2p2, which fixes several bugs and typos, including two uncommon crash situations in PennMUSH 1.8.0. This patch is highly recommended for all users of the "stable" series that are not intending to upgrade to 1.8.3 immediately.
We're also pleased to announce the first release of the PennMUSH 1.8.3 series. This is the new "development" series, and future releases will contain both bugfixes and new features. 1.8.3 includes all of the fixes in 1.8.2p2 as well as an extensive rewrite of the internal ansi color handling routines.
There is a patch from 1.8.2p1 to 1.8.3p0, but it's advisable to start with the clean 1.8.3 tarball instead, and port over any changes (see the file UPGRADING in the distribution).
