The hype is already starting, though.

September was the approximate time when the Big Wait begins. Hopefully Toady can fix some of the most outstanding bugs like military equipment and layering issues that have been in the game for 5+ years, before we start waiting again.
Don't hold you breath. This arc isn't devoted to bug fixes, but to producing new ones (as a side effect of adding functionality). With the normal logic equipment bugs won't be addressed until equipment gets an upgrade. That said, Toady does fix "random" old bugs now and then, and there's probably going to be a slightly longer bug fixing tail of this arc than normal.

Improved Sieges is kind of military which is kind of uniforms...yeah, bit of a stretch.

Although the last arc did actually feature an attempt at fixing layers, so it's not completely out of the question. Or the lack of success could be an indication that it's going to take a future rewrite to make it work. Who knows. :)

Not a big deal anyway. Military wear armour, don't die, that's working Ok.

Remember danger rooms?
Remember "railguns" and "lightsabers"?
Remember construction site item teleportation?
Remember hauling the entire seed bag to pick up a single seed?
Remember hauling the entire seed barrel to pick up that?
Remember when the horses outnumbered the humans?
Remember a time before everything was inevitable?

Remember when if you scrolled too far east or west there was an easter egg message?
What was the message?

Reading his name would trigger it. Thinking of him would trigger it. No other circumstances would trigger it- it was strictly related to the concept of Bill Clinton entering the conscious mind.

Remember the first time someone dropped a mountain on something else?
Remember the magma sky cannon?
Remember when you didn't have to be scared of nightbeasts and evil clouds and demon kings and Swallowmen and poisonous things and feeling sad and accidentally hitting an aquifer and four billion other things?

I agree with Urist. Steampunk is like Darth Vader winning Holland's Next Top Model. It would be awesome but not something I'd like in this game.

Remember before visitors existed?
Remember before zombies were nerfed?
Remember when when in adv mode you got told specifically how much more experience you needed to get higher skills?

It's on the wiki's Easter Eggs page, version 23a.

Starte during the old 2012 days... Only thing you could milk were purring maggots I think?
And lots of executions. Never set up chains. Citizen abuse was all the rage in the guard.

So is the Update after the big wait still going to be called DF2014?

Or will they go with something else?

If something else, my vote is "DFM2"
