Strong monsters wanted to feel really important, so they decided to carry more items around. Feeling all posh, lots of creatures have polished their appearance. And even some items got cleaned up.
While all this was going on, some animals suddenly realized, that you cannot eat money. But fear not, there are other ways to make good use of animals.
The population in Deniran has increased. While some new citizens are not very talkative, an old man has stories to share.

Note for developers: After this release, an installation of Node.js will be required to build Stendhal from Source Code.
Our engine Marauroa adds support for compilation on Java 17 with release 3.9.7. Therefore support for Java version 6 and 7 has been dropped.
Database commands can now be prioritized in order to prefer operations, that are required by user interactions, over statistics.
KeepALive messages are now supported during login phase, in order to allow players to stay in the queue, when the database is extremely busy.
So much space an the new Deniran Air And Space Museum. Too bad the museum has a no-refund policy. But if you want to admire space, it might be worth the trip anyway.
In other news, construction have started for the Mine Town Revival Weeks festival north of Semos. But supplies are scarce, so help with logistics is appreciated.
There are more changes, which you can find in the change log for this release.
Please have a look at the information about server compromise.
When people of Faiumoni woke up on July, 4th they felt something was odd. The scientists of the royal academy of astronomy later confirmed their feelings. From their regular observations of the stars they derived that somehow several days had gone missing.
For what is known, people went to bed on July, 2nd only to wake up two days later with great thirst and hunger. So far there is nobody to be found who can tell what happened during that missing time. The reason for this incident is yet unknown.
Even the famous psychic Lovena is not able shed any light on things. All she is able to tell is that she senses the letter "t".
People are concerned. Hopefully, this is not an omen for even worse and stranger things happening tonight.
Happy holidays and a healthy new year from the Stendhal Community!
Keep your eyes open and you might meet Santa for a nice present and a pointy hat.
