Dwarf Fortress 0.21.101.19b was released on August 20, 2006. There is no download link for this version, as it was replaced with version 0.21.101.19c later that day.

Many more crash fixes, including stopping some of those inflate errors. Those saves are still corrupted though.


I've changed how some of the search routines work. I tested it out on several saves, but you should keep a copy of yours safe before you try this one just in case, as usual. If you get around to creating a new world, you'll notice a significant speed increase when the years march up. Some of this also carries over to the main game.

Finally, aqueduct behavior has been partially repaired. Building an aqueduct over your chasm should work, but aqueducts over water can randomly drown your fortress. If you want to get lava over the river, try a stone bridge instead. If you lava is in a channel next to the bridge, you might need to use a floodgate to get it over. Bridges over water filled channels probably won't conduct lava properly. I'll get around to fixing the rest of this in time, but there are still some crash bugs etc. that are higher priority.
