Dwarf Fortress was released on February 23, 2008.

This is the first Mac release. Barring some tragic mistake, this is also the last bug fix release before the continuation of the Army Arc. Again, this release is made up mostly of small changes that people wanted and some bug fixes for the worst problems introduced during the last release. See the dev log for a complete list.
