Hmm, did something profound change with constructing walls?  I had 8 gneiss blocks in a bar/block stockpile (no bins) on the surface.  I ordered b-C-w to start building a wall.  I happened to make it 8 X's north/south.  I placed it, scrolled the cursor to the gneiss blocks, and hit Enter 8 times... except, hey wait!  It only needed 1 Enter instead of 8.  Sure enough, dwarves showed up at the wall and started building the southern 7/8 of it without blocks.  Then one dwarf took a gneiss block to the northern end to build that last tile.  The result: an 8-tile wall built from 1 gneiss block.

Then I did it again, with an east/west wall.  Same thing happened.  I now have 16 tiles of wall, and 6 gneiss blocks remaining.

This looks like a bug.

Allowed burrows to restrict workshop item search or not

Will this fix a lot of the "can't brew anything" problems?

That depends on the players, since all the "can't brew" bugs so far have been user errors.  If a lot of users were encountering "brew problems" due to barrels being outside of a burrow, then this might help them.  I suspect about 95% of the "brew problems" were split evenly between "I installed a graphics pack" and "My mega food stockpile allows barrels and all plants are marked for hauling", but that's just my personal guess.

It had to do with the undead not pathing into the fortress, and instead just standing there.

press escape.
<game crashes>

I might have an angle on the escape crash -- I had to change how the calendar worked, and it might have caused the title screen to not come back properly, but I'll have to check.

Hmm, did something profound change with constructing walls?

I'm assuming that has something to do with the paved road construction count rewrite.  I'll check.

There was the undead pathing when they invade, but there was also some general immobility in adv mode.  I think any specific loyalty-type problems with them killing necromancers or whatever will still be there...  and probably some immobility as well.

The parts to do with them now being reactions, hopefully.  There's still the container hauling part that's a big one.  And the other problems from plants not being usable for a few reasons that are on the tracker.

Out of curiosity, what was the save corruption you were chasing yesterday? Got a bug tracker link?

It was somebody having a crash untraveling at a tavern, though I don't remember the number.  The game will now log "have corrupt map" when you load if your game is corrupted.  It might be possible to fix it by retiring your character/fort and deleting the feature files from the save folder, though I'm not sure how safe that is.

(Sorry for my mediocre english, i'm not a native)
