+Bugs that aren't our fault, but might bite people:
+
+Modern:
+
+* You might experience crashes because the default executable stack
+ size is too small. An 8 megabyte stack is more than ample. On unix,
+ it can be raised with 'ulimit -s 8192'. On Windows, you must use the
+ editbin progam that comes with MS development environments to raise
+ the stack on a per-executable basis, via 'editbin /STACK:8388608
+ netmush.exe'
+
+* Some IPv6-enabled systems are not configured out of the box to
+ tunnel IPv4 connection attempts on the same port to the IPv6 socket
+ that is listening. If you can connect to a local game via ::1 but
+ not 127.0.0.1 this is likely the issue. On unix systems, a user with
+ root privileges can do 'sysctl -w net.inet6.ip6.v6only=0', after
+ which you'll have to do a complete shutdown and restart of the mush
+ for the change to take effect. The file /etc/sysctl.conf will have
+ to be changed too so the change persists across server reboots.
+ If that's not practical, you can get an IPv4-only mush by doing
+ the following:
+
+ % ./configure --disable-ipv6
+ % make
+
+ Then do a full @shutdown of the game and run restart.
+
+
+You can browse the bug and suggestion database at
+http://dev.pennmush.org to see more.

+
+Version 1.8.0 patchlevel 0 January 1, 2005
+
+Major Changes (since 1.7.6):
+ * SQL support (MySQL server).
+ * SSL support.
+ * Attribute trees.
+ * Object ids uniquely identify an object across recycling dbrefs.
+ * Anonymous attributes via #lambda.
+ * Ancestor objects for each object type.
+ * Interactions (something like "realms" in mux2) control conditions
+ under which objects can see, hear, match, or establish the presence
+ of each other. See local.c.
+ * New flag/power internals, no more limits on number of flags,
+ flags can be added/removed at runtime.
+ * New game/chat db formats, more readable, extensible, and
+ better at detecting problems.
+ * New framework for performing lock failure activities in hardcode.
+ * Customized mush.cnf configuration parameters can be easily added.
+ * New chunk memory allocator does our own paging to disk,
+ so the resident memory footprint is much lower.
+ * Lock system rewrite. #true and #false atoms for locks.
+ * minimal.db is no more. If you start up the server and there's no
+ db to be found, it creates a new minimal database in memory.
+ * New commands: @command/alias, buy, @boot/silent, @assert, huh_command,
+ @decomp/prefix, @edit/first, ex/parent, empty, @nscemit, @function,
+ @nsemit, @nsoemit, @nslemit, @nsremit, @nszemit, ], @command/add,
+ @command/del, warn_on_missing, @switch/regexp, @*emit/spoof,
+ @tel/inside, @hook/ignore, @hook/override, @chan/recall, with/room,
+ IDLE, @sitelock/check, SCREENWIDTH, SCREENHEIGHT, ex/all
+ * New functions: zwho, zmwho, l/lv/n/nv/x/xvthings, malias, locks, llocks,
+ lset, lockflags, llockflags, lattrp, nattr/p, xattr/p, mailsend,
+ x/xv/n/nv/exits/players/things, nsemit/cemit/remit/lemit/oemit/zemit,
+ andlflags, andlpowers, orlflags, orlpower, andpowers, orpowers,
+ align, sent, recv, scan, valid, allof, firstof, tr, vcross, hostname,
+ ipaddr, cmds, reswitch*, digest, cowner, baseconv, randword,
+ trimtiny, trimpenn, terminfo, lports, strreplace, fraction, root,
+ children, accname, lpos, width, height
+ * New behaviors: @adisconnect, No_Pay, @name, @lock/speech, examine,
+ @cemit, give, @cost, SUSPECT, @startup, escape(), time(), merge(),
+ @set, move, @name, etimefmt(), insert(), PUPPET, help, rand, DEBUG,
+ TERSE, powers(), @config/set, @function/restrict, %~, @lock/leave,
+ tel(), @descformat, @idescformat, @aconnect
+ * @lock/interact can prevent other players from transmitting any
+ normal sound to you (that is, you won't hear them speak, pose,
+ emit, etc., like gagging them in a client).
+ * New flags: HEAVY, ORPHAN, MISTRUST
+ * New powers: Debit, Can_NSPemit
+ * New attribute flags: NO_NAME, NO_SPACE, DEBUG, NEARBY, PUBLIC, VEILED
+ * New channel flags: Notitles, Nonames, Nocemit
+ * You can log setting/resetting of flags/powers, as well as individual
+ commands or function calls.
+ * Rolling activity log dumped on panic dumps or visible with @uptime.
+ * A new test harness for developing regression test suites in perl
+ for PennMUSH is now included; few test suites are. If you can figure
+ out how to use this, write some tests for us!
+ * More and better telnet negotiation.
+ * Many internal improvements. Many old compile-time options removed
+ or replaced by run-time options. Source code commenting using
+ doxygen. Improved internationalization.
+ * New config directives: unconnected_idle_timeout, max_guests,
+ max_global_fns, read_remote_desc, default_home
+Minor Changes (since last 1.7.7):
+ * The LFAIL/OLFAIL/ALFAIL messages are activated whenever a @lock/leave
+ is checked and failed, not just when a 'leave' command fails.
+ (So they work for failed attempts to leave rooms by exits/@tel).
+ Suggested by Zith@Lovarii.
+Fixes (since last 1.7.7):
+ * Help for grab() now references graball(). Report by Sketch@M*U*S*H.
+ * Reference to 'ducats' in code replaced by appropriate plural
+ currency unit. Report by Kinumi@ShoujoAi.
