MAngband v1.1.3 Released May 27, 2016, 7:58 pm
The MAngband Project Team releases version 1.1.3 of MAngband. This is a minor, bug fix and compatibility release for both client and server.
Lots of various binaries were prepared for your convenience, see the Download page. Checkout the What's New page for a list of changes in this release.
If you are currently running a private MAngband 1.1.X server you should be able to upgrade to this version without loss of savefiles or data, but please make a backup just in case.
This is not a major release you've been waiting for, sorry. We're working on it. In the meantime, make sure to play some PWMangband!

We really are working on the server, promise!
In the meantime, you can grab the binaries (and sources) here:

Our server exploded in a ball of light. We're working on it. Game server is back online and accessable via the standard game client...
Happy Holidays (aka The house expansion project) December 23, 2013, 7:18 pm
Background: Our server instance has had a very long life, which in turn means that we've had (and have) quite a few high level players.
While this naturally is good and well, the downside to it is that there aren't many large houses available to the active players these days. Some level 50's find themselves forced stay in the houses they bought at level 30 and I'm sure most will agree that if you've played enough to get to level 50, it's only fair to be "rewarded" with a proper home.
The way that house generation currently works is this; the game generates a certain amount of houses, randomly placed and sized in town and the surrounding suburbs. This is a one time thing, generate once - and you're stuck with it.
Anyway: In order to resolve the shortage of nice big homes we've decided to just increase the size of some existing houses!
Go to the Huge House Wishlist! for more details.
Ironman High-Scores April 14, 2013, 10:35 pm
Well, you asked for it here and here, and now it is reality! We now have a ladder for Ironman!
For the moment only dead characters will appear, but the ones who are still alive will be included shortly :-)
New Project Team member! March 1, 2013, 10:19 am
Long time player and contributor Thorbear has now officially joined the team! Thorbear is a fine chap who knows his way around the code as well as the dungeon, a combination that is most useful :)
So please give him a warm welcome!
Java client February 14, 2012, 5:47 pm
While the dev team is slacking off, evileye brings us a java client for mangband. I should add that it sports BSD license, which might be a welcomed change for some developers out there. It's in alpha stage, but should be playable.
In other late news, we got our first winner on the new instance, and it's PowerWyrm :) Congratulations!
