Poschengband 7.1.1?

I'm coming back to angband variants after not having played in a couple years (after poschengband stopped being updated), but when I looked for the most recent update of poschengband, I found this site, which has Poschengband 7.1.1 uploaded on October 2 2019. I haven't seen any discussion of it though, so I wanted to make sure it was real and not a virus. Is that the creator's actual site?

Curious, no idea where that stands in the hierarchy. No idea if that is 'chris' back again.

These days Composband and Frogcomposband spun off out of the old Poschangband seem the most popular.

While I don't know if that's the site (I don't have the URL saved from way back when, so I don't have anything to compare it to), the layout is awful similar to what I remember of it.

Also, the old posts (the ones several years) at least look legit.

From comparing the source archive to the previous PCB release, if it's malware or a virus, someone put in an awful lot of work to make it look like a legitimate update. Pretty major changes to the world map and game progression, more Tolkien and less Zelazny, source code restructuring, a monk rework, etc.

Well I played it for about 10 minutes without my computer blowing up, so presumably safe. Also in true angband maintainer style he hasn't updated the help files yet.

Up on angband live. Played for about the same 10 mins as wobbly, things have changed but I don't have impressions yet (except that wilderness terrain generation is much easier on the eye).
