That's cool, that stack issues finally fixed, Thanks, Toady
But also i've got a question:
I just made new fortress. After building underground farming plot i noticed that list of available plants became significantly larger, so it seems for me that now i can grow (or at least may try to grow) plants, such as grape and blueberries, underground. Is it true or am i missing something? Thanks in advance :)

UPD: i found, what's happened: since destroying of roots now doesn't destroy tree itself, i was able to dig out place for plot through tree roots without touching anything above. So my plot was then placed under the tree without roots and tile under that tree got status "Light / Above ground". After i fell that tree, nothing changed.
I'm still not sure it supposed to work like this.

Thanks so much for the bug fixes! 

Hopefully the problems with invasions will be fixed soon, if they don't need drastic reworking of the game to fix.

Seems like a bug to me, if the plot doesn't have any light shining down on it.  Perhaps the light columns are broken.

(*) Made scarred over wounds to broken functional layers continue to impair function

What does this mean exactly?

If an eye for example suffers a red wound, and it later scars over, the eye will still be blind (should be a cyan wound).

So, sparring is still broken (trains wrestling only)?  I don't see any bug fixes related to it.

There was that fix involving weapon use from before, but I haven't done anything new.

That people stabbed in the eye won't magically recover their whole eyeball over time and continue to see.

Nope, this release is all about stacking, ui, and dragging around animals.

This is because tree-trunks let through light, putting your plot half outside, half inside. Both are reported on the tracker.

Great job sqaushing bugs there, yet again.

I'm not exactly sure what that means.
Does that mean my butcher workshops will get even more cluttered now? I've got 3 bonecrafters on full time bolt / engrave duty in 40.05. and they already can't keep up with bones from butchering the 4 species I'm breeding, dogs, cats, badgers and porcupines. Have to tear down and remake the butcher shops every now and then to unclutter them.

Things like bone greaves shoudn't require three stacks of bones, but take three bones from one stack, for example.

Bolts should still use one bone per bolt, so I wouldn't expect more clutter from bolt-making. The clutter you experienced in the past may have been due to this bug, which appears to have been fixed.

As soon as I get use to the current version and have a half decent base going...
   (*) Stopped announcement of theft of hidden reclaimed underground objects
   (*) Stopped birth announcements for hidden creatures and separated wild/tame animal birth announcements
   (*) Stopped hidden/forbidden buildings from being listed in lever link menu
   (*) Stopped hidden/forbidden buildings from appearing in room list
   (*) Stopped hidden items from appearing in military equipment lists
   (*) Made building/stockpile menus to respect different window heights
   (*) Removed requirement that a creature have a baby/child state to breed
   (*) Fixed problem causing multiple plant listings in stockpile
...I have a reason to go try out a new version (these are all the things that are actually giving me issues in the 40.05 build I was using). I imagine that this will work with the 40.05 saves? Should I need to point out the obvious rush to the !science! of breeding dragons now that they no longer require a child tag? ... maybe I'll just gen a few new worlds and see how the dragon count differs (using a preset DFPerfectWorld style).
I either hate you or love you... I can't decide which, but if you keep this up i'm going to start throwing money at you.

This is actually a really old bug. If a plot is exposed to light it will always be considered aboveground. On the one hand, this means that you can build a greenhouse out of glass to grow aboveground plants, which is nice. On the other hand, you can basically end up only growing above ground plants underground.

Nice.  This will make modding in creatures that undergo metamorphosis much easier.
