Hey all, here are the latest fixes:
- Sleight of Hand can no longer transfer the Vindication affliction.
- More types of instruments can now be used for Bards playing songs (anything that We tag as an instrument, rather than a hard-coded set).
- Shop owners now cannot adjust prices for secret orgs that they're not a member of - so Pathfinders cannot bar Mockers from purchasing wares anymore.
- When denizens say things, it'll appear in the communications tab of the HTML5 client. For system coders: the gmcp.Comm module now includes denizens speaking.
- Some denizens now perform NationTells - specifically the Free Cities guards for Hush will now alert their Nation.
- There is now an NMARKREAD command that marks all of your news as read. Equivalent to doing READNEWS <section> <last number> for all sections.
- Staff of Storms now consumes balance when breaking an inferno.
Objects that are associated with a particular exit now show that exit in IH - eg: "a firewall (north)".
- Calligraphy colors are now consistent - you need fineblueink to write in 'fine blue'.
- You may no longer move more than 200 commodities using VIN/VOUT, with a single command. Someone was trying to VOUT 4000 gems, and it was lagging the game horribly.
- Lims-Kragma Lifethread syntax improved, with an example of what it would look like, and it now shows denizen loyalty if the killer was loyal to a player. Also allows ending the message with punctuation other than a period.

Penned by my hand on the 5th of Dzanin, in the year 60.
