Nethack 3.6 has landed

Posted on

A little over a month ago I wrote about Nethack 3.6 being released. I haven’t ascended in it yet — Kerbal Space Program has been occupying spare cycles instead. But after a bit of massaging and extra goes-around because of the way FreeBSD ports get updated, the nethack 3.6 port has now landed in the official ports tree. I don’t think there’s a package of it yet.

This is my first port to hit the official tree. Zanshin will follow.

KDE ports updates are getting nearer, since the KDE-FreeBSD team is now doing exp-runs (those are rebuild-everything-with-an-updated-port build jobs that touch all supportd FreeBSD versions and architectures) for Qt 5.5 and the latest CMake. So there’s a whole slew of ports updates looming on the horizon.
