Dwarf Fortress was released on November 14, 2006.

There were various cosmetic changes to the game, mainly the addition of dyes and more art images. The selection of dyes is very limited at present, and only involves ground plants. There is a new workshop for this in dwarf mode. You can use blue mushrooms or import other dyes from human traders. This will be expanded later.
