Completely and utterly, those without i9 twenty core processors beware.

But no, I don't believe so. I think he stated there wasn't much of a noticeable difference for himself, but chances are once it hits the public we'll probably see some differences on the more lower end computers.

Isn't DF not capable of properly utilizing multiple cores?

Correct. DF is a single-threaded program.

I think some code relating to display is on another core, but it was contributed far in the past by someone other than Toady, so for all intents and purposes it is single core

That's correct, graphics are a separate thread. This is why FPS and graphics FPS are two different settings. So you get some marginal benefit from running on a 2 core machine.

I'm curious as to how a tank would evolve. Would it climb out of the primordial ooze wiggling it's track-nubs, feeding on smaller jeeps before crawling onto the shore having evolved proper treds?

Hehehe that post from reality.auditor made me laugh a lot! I don't really know why. I just keep imagining him all angry shouting at the screen while typing the post... hahahaha!!!

But well, in fact a few pages ago I did pointed the release could be in august? That wouldn't be bothersome for me, I rather Toady bug out most mayor things and then we only work out what we can find. I think that way he would be less overwhelmed by a gazillion people posting the same bugs over and over.

I know they said this week, but I wouldn't mind if they take another week or two for a better test drive.

Just one small minority will use the bug tracker. Some will suffer in silence. Many will flood the forums to complain. And the majority will wait until the bugs are ironed out. So, it is better we begin as soon as possible.

So not this minute, but soon? And soon as, today?

Depends on a lot of things, all technical at this point...  like what happens when I turn on the other computers that haven't been turned on for 2 years.  And what this mem leak analyzer thingy tells me.  That sort of stuff.  I'm not sure if it will be ready before you have to go to work all month, unfortunately.  Maybe at exactly the wrong time.

So, it seems the glorious Sequence has started. Reading such a small and cherised info snippet, I wonder what are the odds, exactly? This will be a historic moment for the Bay12 forums, and I want to be prepared.

Is it weird that I'm usualy more excited about testing a new and possibly very buggy version of DF rather then mainstream game releases? :P

I was so happy when I reported the creature cloning bug before anyone else and thus got to have one of those bugs that has a whole list of other bugs attached to it.

I had a little one where irregular-shaped stockpiles wouldn't fill properly, I was quite proud when it got fixed.

In a fat-fingered moment while setting up another military squad I accidentally created a captain of the guard rather than a militia captain.  His squad of near-legendary hammerdwarves equipped with high quality silver hammers then took it upon themselves to dispense justice to all the mandate breakers in the fortress.  It was quite messy.

I'll post a new one of these in a bit when the dust settles, and I'll probably link back to some answers to relevant questions.
