Is this some kind of forshadowing???
« on: January 16, 2013, 07:11 »

From the wiki:

" 0.9.9.7

DoomRL 0.9.9.7, released in January 2013, continued the time honored tradition of yanking the rug from underneath prospective modders and spitting on them while they were down. Although most of the fundamental redesigns were in areas only TCers dared visit the sheer volume of changes made DoomRL modding a much more complete and thorough experience. Only a few areas remained outside of modder control, though total conversions were still not supported. "

Released in january 2013?! Am I in a time warp? Did I miss it? Or is someone trolling?

January '13 isn't over yet.
There was no public releases of .997 but as far as I know those guys with green\yellow names have access to beta, so one of them may wrote this.

I can confirm that 0.9.9.7 is in Beta-testing.  :)

I'm not sure how much I'm allowed to say about it, but it's definitely going to have a lot of new interesting features that should keep DoomRL addictive for a while.  :D

I'm fairly sure that the wiki said "released in December 2012" last month ;)

But yes, the release is in beta testing.

I wrote that in the present tense because I expected it would be true once January rolled around and I figured I would forget otherwise.  If the 31st rolls around and I am proved a liar I'll be (you guessed it) changing it to read February instead.

Dammit. I wonder if donating $3 is sufficient and not just offensive.

Make it twenty and we'll see about getting you access to the beta... *wink wink*
