Changelog for nightlies

With the release of the latest nightly, I thought it would be useful to assemble a log of all the changes since the release of 3.2.0. I tried to err on the side of inclusion, and so the log is rather long to read. Where clear, I have noted a trac bug or a staging branch git commit ID to go along with the change. In each section, I attempted to put the most notable changes first, but of course this is a subjective matter. Also, it is entirely possible that I have missed important changes; I worked largely from git comments and trac headlines. If you notice something missing, please let us know.

- Sniff, I like the bronze monsters and DSM.

Make Wrath, Ulmo, and Erebor match base item dice sides and weight
- Does this greatly simplify the code? I don't have a problem with artifact versions of a weapon being different than the base.

No, it doesn't. It was another of Eddie's many requests which got actioned ;-)

I always rather liked how the Trident of Wrath was horribly heavy. It was nice flavor. I don't feel strongly about the dice though.

You guys sure have been busy! Congrats on all you've accomplished.

I have fond feelings for big heavy ToW since my recent winner had it most of the game. I was willing to use it as my final weapon, but GoP showed up.

It was explained to me that there was a general rule that sides are supposed to be the same for artifacts. It wasn't a request, rather I just reported a bug. FWIW my first preference is that the trident of wrath be changed to a different base object.

IMO if it has a different weight, it is a different base object.

The reason I noticed was an attempt to make item damage effects go after base properties instead of plusses.

[edit] I misread the original. The changes in weight are surely 100% due to me. I'd still be happy with different base objects.

I am glad you find it useful. I might defer the feet-kissing to my hobbit assistant, though. Please note that, as long as the list is, I did omit and combine some changes, and so the list is not comprehensive. Small typo fixes and code cleanups didn't make the list, for example. Also, of course, it is already out of date.

You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
