Stendhal 1.04 is primarily a release for Halloween! Semos is decorated and the Mine Town Revival Weeks (annual since 2006!) are being celebrated again.
Also, other improvements include a better way to access the ingame menus, bug fixes, and an updated 'paper chase' quest. Read more at http://arianne.sourceforge.net/game/stendhal.html#changes or just play now from http://stendhalgame.org/
