The NetHack DevTeam is pleased to announce the release of NetHack 3.4.0.

NetHack 3.4 is an enhancement to the dungeon exploration game NetHack. It is a distant descendent of Rogue and Hack, and a direct descendent of NetHack 3.3.

There are a great number of bug fixes in this release, as well as many changes and surprises beyond what you see listed below. Here is a brief overview of some new additions and changes in the game.

We've also included variations of enhancements contributed by members of the NetHack community at large. Among them:

A fuller list of changes for this release can be found in the file doc/fixes34.0 in the source distribution. The text in there was written for the development team's own use and is provided "as is", so please do not ask us to further explain the entries in this file.

The NetHack 3.4.0 source code supports many different platforms including most Unix versions, Windows, DOS, Linux, Apple Macintosh (tm), Apple Macintosh OS X (tm), OS/2 (tm), Atari (tm), OpenVMS, and Amiga (tm).

Also, note that the Gnome toolkit interface is still considered an experimental option. We have not enhanced the port ourselves (except for a work-around for setuid/setgid issues) , and so far we have not received any contributions doing so from the NetHack community.

-- Happy NetHacking! --
