V 3.5 now in feature freeze
 
I pushed a load of changes and bugfixes today to the 3.5 code. 3.5 is now in feature freeze so from now until release it's bugfixes only. The changes from today fix quite a few of the issues that have come up but please don't hesitate to bump threads if bugs are still occurring with the latest nightly. We're going to have a bug-hunt-athon at some point in the next few weeks and hopefully 3.5 can be releases as unbuggy as possible. :)

As ever, you can download the latest dev version from http://rephial.org/nightlies .

Congrats on hitting feature freeze. Do we have a list of new features anywhere?

Is there a target release date? I've got a few things that I could submit that should close some issues. I just need to pull out the changes, since my working copy is quite different (and probably has regressions).

Whats the status on poison duration ? Ever since ccw has been made scarce, I feel compelled to wait out poison and it has been bugging me to no end.
I havent seen anyone else complaining, so maybe its just me (or maybe noone was playing 3.5 ?), but as it is I feel its borderline unplayable. If I play at all, I do the "wait 10000 turns downstairs till shops refresh" like in old *id* days to get enough !ccw for poison curing. Playing kobold also helps, but I like to change it up occasionally.

Elven waybread also cures poison. I hope that has been made more common, it is my favorite food source for warriors.

Yup! Here: https://github.com/angband/angband/b...er/changes.txt

I think this is one of the longest changelists we've ever had. In particular feedback on the following would be helpful:

* Replace rings of rFire & rCold with one ring, rFire&Cold
* Move =Flames/Ice/Lightning/Acid higher in the dungeon
* Radically improve Slow Digestion (you nearly never need to eat with it).
* Tweak mushrooms:
- fast recovery heals some HP, clear mind heals 10SP.
- substantially increase duration of telepathy from ,SecondSight and rConf from ,ClearMind.
- Terror now gives you +10 speed

All sound good to me!
Thanks Takkaria.

In addition to waybread, Cure Serious Wounds also removes poison. But are you getting badly poisoned frequently? Most melee poison only lasts for a few turns...

It does? It doesn't in 3.4.1, so that has to be new on 3.5.

[EDIT] I don't find that in changes so I need to test that.
[EDIT EDIT] No, it doesn't cure poison.

When was torchlight changed so that radius 1 light no longer illuminates diagonals? I don't see that on the change list.
