Angband 4.2.3

Angband 4.2.3 is now available for Windows, macOS and as source. It can be downloaded from the official site.

This version contains considerable bug-fixing - mostly by backwardsEric - and more class tweaks. It's also possible that the game will run faster than 4.2.2 - I'm interested to hear if this is indeed the case.

It will not be that last release in the 4.2 series - there are still code improvements going on. However there are no definite bugs outstanding (see here for the indefinite ones) and the changes since 4.2.2 make it IMHO worth a release now.

Summary of changes:
  • updates to necromancer and ranger spells
  • improvements to quiver inscriptions
  • many improvements to dungeon generation, especially robustness
  • many improvements to testing and building the game, especially with SDL2
  • make the duration of multiple timed effects exactly the same
  • allow selection for effects that used to give a random choice of effects
  • fix a bug that made radius of artifact lights too small by one
  • improvements to handling in-game information on effects
  • better documentation in datafiles
  • debugging commands now use the Angband 4 command system
  • upgrade of the NDS port to the 3DS with many improvements

As always, thanks to everyone who has contributed.
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
