Zangband 2.7.4 released

Version 2.7.4 has now been released.

This version improves the borg, changes quests so that they are given in town, and makes the powers of objects, artifacts and ego items defined as lua scripts in the *_info.txt files.

Just a reminder, this is a version in an unstable branch. Don't expect the game to be as quite as bug free as 2.6.x was.

Zangband 2.7.3 released

Version 2.7.3 has now been released.

This version should fix the problems people have been seeing with an assertion failure in object2.c In addition, this version themes the dungeons so that behave differently. Explore the wilderness to find dungeons deeper, and with more treasure and monsters than that in the starting town.

Just a reminder, this is a version in an unstable branch. Don't expect the game to be as quite as bug free as 2.6.x was.

Version 2.7.2 has now been released

This version adds a cut-down alpha port of Tim Bakers Tk patch. It also fixes a huge number of bugs in 2.7.1

This version is still in the 2.7.x unstable branch, so will not be as stable as 2.6.2 However, it has many more new features. See the changelog for more details.

ZAngband 2.7.0 released

The first version in the new branch is released. This version changes the combat system to be simpler to understand, improves the wilderness code, and changes the quest code. There are now quests in the wilderness.

This version also adds scripting via lua, and updates the platform-specific code for several ports. (You may want to check out the gtk port - it is much improved.)
