Is steamband still alive ?

Hello Everyone,

This is my first time posting here.

I'm a long time roguelike player, but I did not get to angband till recently.
The band that hooked me is steamband, mostly due to it's excellent fluff, but also due to it's skill system.

I tried to found out if it is actively maintained but I did not find any indications that are not several years old.
The version I'm playing on is 0.4.1, is there a more recent one ?

On another note, what is the license for the code base ?
I compiled the code and made a few modifications, mainly to make wonderland playable, under which condition could I share this ?

Thanks for reading...

People still play it once in awhile, but it has sort of run out of steam.

It looked like there was going to be an update awhile back after a great many years, twice via 2 different folks at that, but it unfortunately hasn't happened yet.

It joins Halls of Mist in the Hopefully Soon, One Day... club.

Too bad, I got no answer on the licensing issue, I guess I'll keep my modifications to myself, then.

Any idea who is the 2nd maintainer of Steamband?

Yes, a modified version can definitely be released under the Angband licence, which (for Steam) can be found in lib/help/version.txt:

It's possible that all the contributors to Steam have also agreed to release their stuff under the GPL following during the successful Angband OpenSource Initiative; certainly releasing under the Angband licence is safe.

Thanks for the information, I just need to set up a windows compile and will find a way to release the few modifications I did.
