Leaked development version

From NetHackWiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

In September 2014, some source-code was leaked, claimed to be Nethack Version 3.5.0.

While the DevTeam has since claimed that the code is not version 3.5.0, they have claimed that the code was written by them, and that variants are welcome to use their code. To avoid confusion, the next version was numbered 3.6.0[1].


The changelog included with the leak reads as follows and can be found on Pastebin.
