There haven't been any new builds for a while (I've taken a break to play the competition), so the last one I told you is the latest, I believe.

I'm afraid not. I'm doing some work on the master branch at the moment (when I'm doing anything...) to attempt to fix some crash/broken savefile bugs; there's also the rebalance of traps etc talked about on the "New Angband" thread. Once that's done I'll be getting back to the feature branch.

Development takes time, and more importantly, interest and energy. Nick and the other devs all donate theirs to the game, the least we can do is be gracious about it.

Successfully ran a Dunadan Druid through to killing Morgoth. http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=21601

I think the Druid class needs some more tweaks. No starting weapon or launcher is a problem. Shape-changing was essentially useless compared to @'s regular combat by the time the spells were viable. The lack of utility spells, forcing device reliance, is okay, but probably has gone too far. An earlier attempt also had a severe HP shortage, barely crossing 400 hps at CL 43 with maxed Con, but this run-through didn't have as much of a problem.

Thanks, I'm hoping too get back to this before too long.

angband-4.1.2-168-gaa672ce06 has serious speed issues. With delay set to 0 (my standard setting), the play is bumpy and unreactive

Is this known issue or just me ?

unfortunately, it's not you. here's hoping nick will release a non laggy build prior to him nerfing the blackguard.
