Shouldn't this article be next version instead of NetHack 3.5.0? -paxed

True. Done. --ZeroOne 11:26, 8 July 2006 (UTC)

Savefile compatibility

What's the source for the sentence "it will not be savefile compatible"? --ZeroOne 07:11, 20 August 2006 (UTC)

I think it's just an observation that incrementing the minor number (3.X++) has always broken savefile compatibility; indeed, this can be one of the criteria for determining whether a new release is a minor update (3.X++) or a bugfix update (3.X.Y++). --Eidolos 07:14, 20 August 2006 (UTC)
Ah, well, since it isn't certain that the next version is 3.5.0, then I think this sentence should be removed or at least marked somehow. --ZeroOne 09:27, 20 August 2006 (UTC)

Net Hackem Forever?

Also known as Net Hackem Forever? Hardly, I don't think I've heard that one anywhere else. --Paxed 00:13, 7 October 2007 (UTC)

Besides, Duke Nukem Forever was actually released. 03:18, 5 January 2014 (UTC)


Are there any clues developement is still in progress? Dead people or projects don't usually announce their demise, so we could be waiting forever. Tjr 00:40, 6 March 2009 (UTC)

The bug list is updated about once a month, so there's at least some work being done. --Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 6 March 2009
Judging by the new post by Pat, I think it's alive and just taking a while to finish. 16:54, 23 August 2011 (UTC)
Pat might be alive, but that doesn't say anything about how alive the development process is. The 3.4.x series stopped suddenly after a few releases that looked liked normal bug fix releases. Bugs piled up afterwards. After so many years, I wouldn't hold my breath that even my grand children will see another Vanilla NetHack release. Go play a Variant. --Bhaak 17:07, 23 August 2011 (UTC)


3.6.0! - 02:01, 8 December 2015 (UTC)
