Submitted by Noltar on Sat, 2007-01-27 06:50

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.

PennMUSH 1.8.2p0

Submitted by Noltar on Sun, 2006-11-26 16:36

The PennMUSH dev team is happy to announce the release of PennMUSH 1.8.2, the latest "stable" series release. As in the past, even-numbered versions are maintained for bugfixes only, and odd-numbered versions get both bugfixes and new features.

1.8.2 represents the conclusion of the feature development in 1.8.1, and includes a large number of new functions over PennMUSH 1.8.0. as well as the refinement and expansion of existing features. This includes multiple aliases per player, multiple search and sort related utility functions to simplify common processes, the decompose function for recreating the original version of parsed strings, the movement of the Home command to a standard command enabling it to be @hook'd and other such behavior, the movement of the FIXED restriction of Home into restrict.cnf, and many other functions, substitutions, and updates.

PennMUSH 1.8.1p8

Submitted by javelin on Thu, 2006-06-29 20:41

PennMUSH 1.8.1p8 has been released. This version fixes two crash bugs and introduces some new features, including: AAHEAR/AMHEAR attribute flags, improvements to @conformat/@invformat, lwho-like functions that return objids, the stringsecs() function, %i0-%i9 (shortcuts for itext()), and other minor improvements and bugfixes.

PennMUSH 1.8.0p12 and 1.8.1p7

Submitted by javelin on Mon, 2006-04-10 12:24

Two new releases. 1.8.0p12 is just bugfixes, and some small improvements in networking and logging.

1.8.1p7 includes many new features. Important changes: The FIXED flag's restriction on home no longer happens in the hardcode -- you must add it to restrict.cnf! Also, the LIGHT flag now overrides DARK consistently; as a consequence, DARK wizards appear in LIGHT rooms.

Some of the new stuff includes @lock/take (who may get something from a container, replaces @lock/enter for this purpose), improved @chan/recall and crecall(), speak(), ulambda(), unique(), nextdbref(), namelist().

PennMUSH 1.8.0p11 and 1.8.1p6

Submitted by javelin on Wed, 2006-03-01 14:50

Two new releases in the usual place. 1.8.0p11 is very minor fixes. 1.8.1p6 makes more substantial internal changes, including a new version of PCRE and removal of the NT_TCP code. User-noticeable changes include a new LOUD flag, DBREFLIST^ lock key, the Many_Attribs power, improvements to decompose(), new functions mapsql(), wildgrep(), and ordinal(), and an assortment of bugfixes.

PennMUSH 1.8.0p10/1.8.1p5

Submitted by javelin on Mon, 2006-01-30 14:17

Two new releases in the usual places.

1.8.0p10 is nearly all bugfixes, and highly recommended. The most important fix is a double-evaluation bug in sql(). As a bonus, the fix allows for row and field separators to more than one character.

1.8.1p5 includes those bugfixes as well as a fix for a 1.8.1-specific crash bug, and several feature improvements, including the nsearch() family of functions, @list/locks, two new @search classes, and other feature and portability enhancements.

1.8.1p5 introduces one incompatibility: @attrib/access now requires a space-separated list of full flag n
