[gnome-mud] ANNOUNCE: gnome-mud 0.11


gnome-mud 0.11


GNOME-Mud is a Multi-User Dungeon (MUD) client for X. It supports
aliases, triggers, multiple connections, command queuing, IPv6 servers
and implements more advanced MUD protocols like MSP or ZMP. It includes
a plugin interface, which can be used to add your own features (for
example, a graphical health monitor).  It uses the GTK+ toolkit, but it
can be used with any window manager.


This is the first release of GNOME-Mud in over /3 years/. While things
have been glacially slow on the development front for some time, this
release is a major milestone as it provides a good basement for new
features and improvements to be done in the future, so hopefully
releases will be out a lot more often from now on.

Developers are wanted, please join gnome-mud-list gnome org if you want
to help out or test.


GNOME-Mud has gone under a substantial rewrite. Improvements include:
- Proper telnet support including telnet options: TTYPE, NAWS, ECHO, CHARSET
  and EOR [Les, Mart Raudsepp]
- Full MSP support (Mud Sound Protocol) [Les]
- ZMP support (core package only at the moment) [Les]
- Separate input history for all connections [Les]
- New input widget that dynamically resizes based on amount of text
  entered [Mart Raudsepp]
- SOCKS proxy support (version 4 and 5) [Les]
- Full encoding support including the ability to negotiate text encoding
  (if the server supports the CHARSET telnet option) [Les]
- Triggers and aliases with perl compatible regular expression matching [Les]
- Support for profiles [Les]
- No dependencies on deprecated libraries [Les, Mart Raudsepp]
- Nice new Tango icon [Andreas Nilsson]
- Added translations:
  + Ukrainian [Maxim Dziumanenko]
  + Nepali [Pawan Chitrakar]
  + Vietnamese [Clytie Siddall]
  + Arabic [Djihed Afifi]
  + Dzongkha [Pema Geyleg]
- Updated translations:
  + German [Jens Seidel, Hendrik Richter]
  + Dutch [Tino Meinen]
  + Canadian English [Adam Weinberger]
  + Spanish [Francisco Javier F. Serrador]
  + Catalan [Jordi Mallach]
  + Swedish [Daniel Nylander]
  + British English [David Lodge]
  + French [Bruno Brouard, Stéphane Raimbault]
  + Occitan [Yannig Marchegay]
  + Greek [Nikos Charonitakis]

There are a few regressions in this release:
- The python plugin API is not available. It will come back with the upcoming
  Plugin API rewrite.
- Support for variables, MCCP and key bindings are temporarily missing and
  will probably be back on our next major release.
