Auto-Updater and Bugfixes
First of all, I want to say thank you to everyone who tried out the client, reported bugs and gave feedback. I hope you enjoyed fluorescence, even if some of you had a rather rocky start :)
One of the things I noticed pretty soon after the release was that a lot of bugs required only very small and easy patches; but distributing the patched file again would take quite some effort. Thus, I created a small svn-based auto updater for fluorescence. You can download it at http://code.google.com/p/fluorescence/downloads/. Just extract to an empty directory and run the updater executable. This will keep your local copy up to date with the latest release.
Please report any problems with the updater to the bugtracker, as well as any bugs you encounter with fluorescence.
The latest version of fluorescence does not require the RunUO patch to run correctly, as the packet code has been updated to conform to the latest SA version. In addition, creating a shard now allows you to set an “High Seas” option to handle the slightly different mul format. uop files are not supported (yet). Furthermore, using skills is now possible (skill gump).
