Question about updates

Hi, I'm currently using version 3.4.1 dirty (if that is relevant), but I don't believe I'm using the most up-to-date version because I just read a list of changes for version 3.4.1 and it says that a wand failing to recharge will not self destruct but just lose all its charges. In my version they self destruct.

Am I not using the most up-to-date version? If not, will updating erase my current character? I've made it to level 47, the farthest I've ever been, and I don't want to lose this guy if I can help it.

3.4.1 is the most current released version, however there are various nightly builds of 3.5 that are still currently in beta. They can be downloaded from rephial.org/nightlies. There are quite a few significant changes, which you'll find documented in the changes.txt file.

As far as importing your current character, it would likely cause some issues. However, if you wanted to try it, I'd recommend making a backup of your save file before trying to open it in the new version just in the event that importing caused any corruption. If so, finish your current game with your backed up copy in 3.4.1 and then start a new character in 3.5.

For what it's worth, I think the vast majority of the changes in 3.5 are awesome and make the game a lot more fun.

That feature was added in 3.0.6 and removed in 3.0.7. I think you're looking at an old changelog!

Being new, and having no idea what the dev cycle is...

Is there a rough expectation for 3.5 release? i.e. a year, 6 months, a couple weeks?

Some of the changes look like good improvements for the early game (i.e. me )

Basically, feature work is complete, it's just waiting for a good round of bugfixing and polish. There are 80ish open bugs, and I'd like to see half of them fixed before releasing 3.5. We wanted it out in August but I'd now expect it in 4-8 weeks.
