MapTool 1.8.4 Released

MapTool 1.8.4 Released

This release fixes a number of bugs. Many thanks to all of the community developers who contribute so much and thanks to all of the users for their patience as we work through the rough spots. The community translators have also made good progress in their efforts so a round of applause for them as well.

Installing 1.8.4 will remove your existing 1.8.3 install. If you have made changes to your startup options in the MapTool.cfg file of your current 1.8.3 install you should make a note of those changes prior to installing 1.8.4 so that you can update the 1.8.4 options after install.

  • #2449 Text color in <p> elements could be overridden by other elements in chat.
