Dwarf Fortress was released on November 23, 2006.

Lots of bugs fixed this time around. I caught a lot of the stay-inside problems, but there are probably some new issues with random jobs now. I'll fix these as I hear about them. I'll also correct any additional stay-inside problems as I hear about them. It should be easier now that more infrastructure is in place.

There's also some creature graphics stuff you can play with. See "raw/graphics/graphics_example.txt" to mess around with it. You'll also need to set [GRAPHICS:YES] in "init/init.txt". I only drew a miner picture, and a blobby dwarf thing, so I don't recommend this unless you are going to draw/use some additional tiles.
