Version 1.8 of AFKMud has been released.

This is a bugfix release.
A patch file is attached to this post, and will only be available via this post.
You must use g++ to compile this release.

To apply: place the patch file in your afkmud directory and use the following:
patch -p1 < 18patch.txt

This patch is intended for use on the original 1.77 package which was released on
January 22, 2006. If you have already applied any of the bugfixes in the forum post for 1.77 fixes
then the patch will likely fail. Proceed at your own risk.

Standard disclaimer type stuff: Changes in this version may or may not remain compatible with your
older support files, such as areas, commands, skills, socials, etc. If things break, you were warned.

My god, Remcon, do you sleep?
Oh wait that's right you are the Samson clone model 2....that's right....
Well done folks, my god...I really had to put my two bits in here after seeing all this...
I was codebase hunting and by Conner's request I am looking into your codebase.

You should keep in mind that this is nearly a full year's worth of fixes that have been done. It just looks like a lot when it's all on the same list :)

Not to mention that Remcon's actually not on this list as many times as he has been for previous lists either. :wink:
The one who really gets the praise on this one is Samson, though there are definitely a number of folks who got significant honorable mentions up there too. :smile:
