This new release only contains two major bug fixes (which are listed on the top.) I believe ToadyOne included the 0.40.07 bug fixes to give people an opportunity to see the fixes done yesterday since this release was done very quickly.

The two major issues that were fixed today were:

Major bug fixes
   (*) Stopped ESC from ending the game when setting up fort or adventurer
   (*) Made constructions use materials properly again

Either way, thank you ToadyOne for going and fixing these major issues right away.

I was thinking more along the lines of this legendary champion, all clad in dented and dinged up steel plate, his blood-drenched axe slung over his back, a notch in the handle for every enemy that saw the swing of that blade as the last sight they ever saw, a battered shield strapped over his arm... and a fluffy, pink stuffed hippo hidden discretely in his breastplate.
