AIME 0.57 released

AIME version 0.57 has been released! It provides new corpse code, better logging, and many new features for the initial login. It includes several new administrative commands that makes building and maintaining the MUD much easier. As always, each feature is extremely flexible, providing the ability for new MUD creators to design their MUD exactly how they want it. Prompts for new players have changed, offering even more information for gameplay.
Those upgrading from a previous version should check the release notes for version 0.57 for details on converting your data to version 0.57.
On compatability news, AIME has been successfully tested on i386 systems (386 to Pentium IVs), Sparc, M68k, and, what may quite possibly be the first MUD to run on this system, the yet to be released IA64 architecture. The goal is to make AIME run on as many systems as possible, so if you have a system (with the exception of a few, Palm OS, Atari games, etc) that you want to get it running on, feel free to contact me at for help.
As always, the email lists on sourceforge (aime-devel, aime-users, aime-announce) are used to get information out to developers and the users. If you wish to help us code the AIME codebase, please contact me at Check the site for a new link to muds using the AIME codebase. If you are designing a mud using AIME, please contact me so we can get your information on that list.
