Talking Release HellBand 0.8.7

Hi,
this is the official release of Hellband 0.8.7, since its been a while I've first pre-released it and it seems to work fine. The most important fix here is stability, there should be no more crash bugs. I've been flooding levels with monsters and items in wizard mode and hellband is now responding properly to abuse.
