We just pushed out the first point release in the 0.11 branch of GnomeMud. I really recommend all gnome-mud users to update to this point release as soon as possible. We fixed a bug that completely broke our telnet parsing. So the good news, it’s fixed and our telnet implementation is rock solid now.
Here’s some of the things you can expect in this release:
- MCCPv2 support. MCCP stands for Mud Client Compression Protocol and is used by many muds to lower the bandwidth needed to run a mud. This will be transparent for endusers but you’ll be able to feel good knowing you’re saving your favorite mud a bit of money.
- The new iconview-based connection manager. This replaces the horrid old system with something much more elegant and easy to use.
- Cleaned up UI. Our dialogs no longer look so ugly!
- Lots of bug fixes. You should find gnome-mud works better than ever (with much fewer crashes!)
