I'd say take what is good and be happy with that. If it is not to your taste go to the older release or a variant. In my view, all improvements to the roguelike code base are welcome even if not all changes will surive over time.

Exactly my feeling about this release!

Will the variant list here get an update some day? -> http://angband.oook.cz/variants.php?ordrd=1

The latest mentioned update is December 25, 2018 for Unangband.

Sometimes I like to try some new variant, but I like to pick one that's still actively worked on. That page is great to throw a dart at.

I had been away from angband.live/angband/PCB-likes entirely for the past six weeks straight. November, 1 2019 marks day #1 of my own return. Now, I welcome christ's pleasant surprise

I did some test runs with PCB 7.1.1. It is quite different then how I used to remember it. Wilderness is like Zangband 2.7.x / Z+. It is kind of 'plain'. Knowing my playstyle and my reputation with Tonberries, I had to change to something else. Being a Hasty Archon Chaos-Warrior that hopefully rolls Hionhurn is enough to spice up the early-game to my style. So, the Hugostyle spirits live on!

I found a PCB 7.1.1 'bug':
The mountains in the far north are actually permanent and impassible but are called 'mountains' anyway. I found out the hard way as an Archon that has innate Levitation

I'm giving this a shot. Haven't played any variants in quite some time. This is... a bit overwhelming. In a good way.

Playing a ranger. Get called a brute for attacking something in the dungeon. Back off, but it comes after me... I kill it. Now I'm out of touch with nature?

Is there an easy way to know what to leave alone? Or is it just a judgement call or trial and error?

It's not complete, but:

Nature is the worst with virtues. Animals include stuff like hydras & hounds. The fail rate is based around being neutral rather then nature itself, so if you find you are too good do some evil stuff & vis versa.
