Enjoying this new version so far. Pretty stable, and no game breaking bugs discovered yet!

Is it possible to give a syndrome a seriously high duration (9999 years, etc.) for "permanent" effects and then have another syndrome (or other interaction) that would reduce the duration on another (active) syndrome?  That would handle "cures" pretty nicely

It's not possible to reduce the duration of an active syndrome, no.  The crux of the matter is that there's no way for a syndrome to directly target another syndrome already present on the creature.

Shame.  Oh well.

The bug tracker is disturbingly quiet considering the size of this release.  I usually root around for things to avoid/reproduce, but most of what's there are sort of "random worldgen-related" things.  The overall cleanliness of this release is quite good.

This makes me hopeful that the "long-standing" bugfix component of the next few weeks will be especially fruitful.

I could be wrong but so far it seems to me that areas marked as "Haunted" have the undead. "Terrifying" has only the evil raintypes and sinister comes with "fumes/mists". 6 forts thought arent a good basis for a statistic. The evil rain is the most tolerable from what i encountered they seem rather harmles. The "repellent ooze" rain (blue) was only in so far annoying that my dorfs started pussing without any harm. I guess its different when they are injured as the wound can get infected.

I can confirm eeevil mist in Terrifying embarks. I'm guessing that it is on a biome basis- each biome can only have one regional curse, and how horrible it is may be linked to savagery. I have yet to encounter evil rain at all, but then I've only played 4 Terrifying embarks (1 Zombie 3 Mist)

Is it confirmed that there is only one "effect" per evil biome?  Because I'd like to have more than one, at times.

Assuming that it is not a bug, are there plans to have multiple evil effects occur in a single biome?  Will it be possible at some point to have good artifacts, workshops, items, or jobs that can repel or prevent evil effects?  I'm envisioning dwarven priests sanctifying coffins so the corpses don't rise, holy water being used to treat mysterious ailments from mists and fogs, protective amulets to guard against creeping ashes, etc.  That sort of thing.

Pretty stable

I've found it's pretty stable while playing, but it keeps crashing when I try to save my fort :(

I notice whenever a werecreature devours a creature without a name the quest text is missing 'a' or 'an'.

"Werebeast Name devoured cat."

Not sure if that is considered a bug and I can't operate the search engine on the bug tracker very well.

Now we have the interactions, can you see the collection of things we have ever being fused into one? Interactions can cause syndromes and syndromes can allow interactions, but will the "sound" capabilities you added, and reactions, and speech, and similar ever be all handled as an "interaction"? What about us ever seeing conditional raws or variables? (Poor example: "Hello, I see you have" player:haircolor "hair".) I'd call it Dwarf&ObjectReferenceFormat.

Good job on this release. :)
dialog already works like that.

I'd appreciate an in-depth explanation of the CE:PERIODIC syndrome tag.  Are there valid values for it besides MOON_PHASE?  I'm specifically looking for a way to make werebeasts that transform every night, because currently in adventure mode they're just naked peasants that like to chill out in holes.
