Shadowbane News - Massive Patch Review. . .

Posted by Matthew Fusco on Jun 05, 2003

We are currently testing an extremely large Shadowbane patch in QA that we hope to deploy next Monday across the service. This is roughly 50% of the total fixes and changes, so this will expand as more items are verified and tested.

Update: Several entries were removed as they were previously fixed, or working as intended. For more information see the corresponding forum thread.
