Client 4.4.5b is out now. Several changes and improvements have been to the client with this release:
- Windows client now saves window positions again when quitting.
- Mixer volume controls now use exponential scaling. This sounds much more natural because the human hearing is logarithmic.
- Chat messages can be up to 120 characters long.
- Macros up to 159 characters can be written in the client.
- More keys can be pressed in the mixer menu.
- The sound system now supports invidual volume levels for all samples being played.

Windows client users should edit their tomenet.ini to make the Game messages window 80 columns wide (it used to be 74 columns wide). The server has been changed to send lines that are 79 characters long to new client.

4.4.5c is here, go get it! Here's a list of the changes:
- Some optimizations to drawing and macro loading.
- Linux client displays warnings and quit reasons within the main window.
- Default size of the audio buffer has been increased.
- Pressing Ctrl-N in while typing a message shouldn't crash anymore.
- Quit reason is shown before the "Save chatlog?" prompt.
- The 'l'ook command in the client now supports color codes also when the "Add target informations to the message history" option is disabled.
- The old auto-inscribe option is back and is now called "Use additional predefined auto-inscription".
- The client no longer tries to load sound samples on the fly to avoid possible freezes.
- The Windows client no longer leaves temporary files behind after script updates.

Note that you should not overwrite the sound.cfg and music.cfg files if you have the sound and music packs installed.

Client 4.4.5h released - colourful crashes after leaving a shop were fixed.

If you already have any 4.4.5 client, you only need to download the binary, ie the EXE file, and overwrite the old TomeNET.exe with it.

The client-code on CVS has been fixed; in case your client code gave you errors when compiling, you should redownload it.

4.4.6a released.
This is a minor bugfix, and you can just download the bin-zip (that one contains just the TomeNET.exe file) instead of the full client-zip.
The important part is that '.' targetting is now '-' instead, so please edit your .prf macro file in a text editor of your choice and just replace the affected '.' by '-', sorry for the inconvenience.

Fixes:
-New targetting mode '.' was changed to '-' which remedies a rogue-like key layout inconvenience, and also allows nice combo macros a la "*t/1-" which can be used with both, items that take and that don't take a direction (for example a wand @/1 or a staff @/1 free de gusto).
-Example macro sets are now os specific, and called windows_fighter.prf, windows_caster.prf, linux_fighter.prf, linux_caster.prf, since the different os use different key codes (old sets only worked on windows).
-The example macro sets use name-reference and new targetting mode '-'
-Guide now emphasizes new targetting mode.
-info files have been updated.

For linux users:
CVS has been updated, the client will now support setting visibility, size and font of all windows via .tomenetrc file. Make sure to get the updated .tomenetrc file from CVS too for that matter. ;) Guide has also been updated to explain the new feature in (2.1).
