I actually talked to Magnate not that long ago over at the freeorion forums. It sounds like he is pretty busy these days and I haven't seen him there for a while which is generally a sign that he doesn't have a lot of free time at the moment. I doubt he was update anytime soon.

Found one, it's a huge help. The impaired regen is quite dramatic and it's nice to have healing available from non-potions,

Just got the book, 1 level away from learning the spell so I'm pumped

Another nice change: automatically swapping in the best digger in inventory is huge. It's so smooth to be able to just carry a Shovel of Digging and not have to bother with the manual swap dance.

@David--
Right. Also beware of gorging while sucking down enormous numbers of !CLW.

Yep, one of the hardest adjustments was fighting my instinct to rest after every fight. Open wounds is a huge help and now I got an amulet of regen too so I do get HP back at a somewhat reasonable rate just running around between fights. Have definitely been mindful of the gorged thing--so far so good by mostly not eating unless my hunger drops below 20%.

Should monsters with shrieks be able to haste themselves too? It doesn't really change anything I guess, the first shriek was enough, but I've had a couple experiences with shrieker mushroom patches and terrified yeeks and such screaming to wake everything, hasting themselves, and then screaming even more off the speed bonus they got. I could see it being more of a problem if there was something else nasty in the room that I didn't want getting hasted 3 times in one turn ........

I think "monster is moving even faster!" message from multiple hastes, means just that the monster will be hasted a longer period of time, not gaining ever more increasing speed. Otherwise Yeek royalties would easily gain something like >+50 speed in just couple of turns.

Ah, that makes more sense. I think it's still new that shriekers can haste themselves now too but it's also really funny imagining a scared little yeek racing around the room, screaming so loudly it scares itself even more and starts running even faster.

In (significantly) older versions, haste really was additive: each call added +10 speed, and it never wore off. I believe this was considered unfair and bad for gameplay, since the usual response was just to flee the level.
