Potato 2.0.0b15

Submitted by talvo on Fri, 2014-08-01 15:03

The long-overdue Potato 2.0.0b15 has finally been released. Because Google Code no longer allows adding files for download, the new version is currently available from while I work on a proper downloads page. This version mostly contains bug fixes, though there are a couple of new features, and a new Norwegian translation courtesy of Odin.

Interest in Potato on Android?

Submitted by talvo on Tue, 2014-01-07 04:14

Hey all,

I'm curious if there'd be any interest in/demand for a version of Potato for Android devices? Someone has ported Tcl and Tk to Android, which makes this a possibility now. However, I don't currently own an Android device to develop/test on, and I wanted to see if there'd be enough interest to make it worth spending the money first. Comment below if you'd be interested.

Howdy folks,

The latest version of Potato, the graphical MU* Client for Windows and Linux, has just been released.

There are a few new features a whole bunch of bug fixes, so if you're using an earlier version of Potato, it's well worth upgrading. If you're not, today is a great day to switch!


Give your MUSH a web-based guest client!

As a followup with Banana - I am now offering, for free, guest web accounts for anyone who would like the ability to offer a lightweight, web-based guest connection to their mush.

You can see an example here: - That's my development mush.

M*U*S*H and CrossroadsMUSH are also available. (But please note, you can only 'guest' to one mush at a time!)

The kindling of a new client

Submitted by walker on Sun, 2011-05-01 02:12

I've been working on developing a new client to scamper alongside the giants: Tinyfugue, MUSHclient, Potato, Atlantis, and many others. Into this world now comes my creation: Banana of the many Clients.

To be specific, Banana is an HTTP <-> Mu* gateway. It creates a proxy that web pages can use to build pure-HTML-and-Javascript web clients, using AJAX to poll events.

The web has exploded the past 10 years. From <a href> to $('#foo').click(...), from IE 4.0 to Chrome, the web has grown by leaps and bounds in usability. More people are probably working on JavaScript right now than TFScript has had in its entire history. More designers are comfortable with HTML than a toolkit, even those running on .NET.

So why not utilize that power to bring MU*ing to the 21st century Web?
