Stendhal 1.01 has just been released, it's the first feature release after the stable release of Stendhal 1.0!
There are lots of changes including chat tabs and new npcs who hint what quests you should try. You can read about them at http://arianne.sourceforge.net/news/stendhal-1-01-released-community-spirit.html
Also, Marauroa 3.9.2 was released. Marauroa 3.9.2 introduces a better algorithm to store hashed passwords (it can be disabled with password_hash=md5 in the configuration file server.ini for compatibility). It fixes an issue that prevented clients from caching transferable content. Finally, it works around a bug in OpenJDK webstart which prevents clients from connecting to a server if a http proxy, without a socks proxy, is configured in Firefox. More about Marauroa at http://arianne.sourceforge.net/engine/marauroa.html
Have fun :)
