Stendhal 0.98 has been released and features a difficult and interesting request from long ago: day and night. There is even sunrise and sunset and without loss of performance.
Amongst other changes, danger levels are calculated for zones with a visual indicator on the client, and there are some new quests including a fun guess-the-number-of-kills game.
To read about more of the changes, see screenshots and the full change log please see http://arianne.sourceforge.net/news/stendhal-0-98-day-turns-into-night.html
