    PWMAngband 1.6.0 released

    For those unfamiliar with PWMAngband, it's a multiplayer real-time variant of Angband based on MAngband 1.x with additions from ToME (features from the time it was still called PernAngband, but without the Pern references) and a few personal additions: new races, classes, monsters and items.

    This release mainly ports the latest changes from Vanilla 4.2.x and implements various other features/fixes.

    See https://github.com/draconisPW/PWMAngband/releases for the Windows release.

    To play on a PWMAngband server or start your own server, download the binaries and unzip the files (client and server are both in the same zip file now). And enjoy!
