Toady's been spoiling us with these fast releases.

Did you accidentally forbid the food by any chance? Like when area-forbidding things?

Nope, checked that. :) There's booze in the same stockpile and they're drinking that quite happily...

Haven't experienced it myself but maybe related to the fix stopping them using liquids as a base? What are the meals made of?

Yup.. seems all my 'Made from Beer only' prepared meals are also lying untouched, while my 'Kitten Chow' meals are being consumed at a normal dwarfly pace. Time to do some trading!

Until then I will just stick to other games or perhaps (gasp!) go outside.

WHOA! Let's not be hasty!

.08 crashed when I used the look command and tried to move the cursor over a refuse stockpile.

Update on our valiant attempt to birth our civilization anew from only 14 survivors: (moved from .06 to .08)

The firstborn of our new generation, Meng, has begun her weaponsmithing apprenticeship at age 12. We are debating the morality of requiring her to marry as soon as possible-- the only eligible men are aged 74 and.... 3.

(Will dwarves marry that far out of their age range? And they won't marry their own brother, right?)

So, uh... I de-fish-inized my river. After now 8 seasons, the river is still devoid of life.
While I agree that should be possible for finite waters like murky pools or small lakes (maybe brooks), it should not be possible to overfish (major) rivers and oceans. We┤re talking 2 dwarfs with a wooden rod here (possibly their bare hands), not multinational fishing fleets.

Working as intended or bug?

Also, my carps are suicidal. They jump down the waterfalls and die. Carps dont tend to live past their first birthday in my fortress. Should I stop peeing in the river?

Downloaded .08 and world gen took something like an hour, on a quad core with 8GB of memory.
It was a large region gen.

No further details now, going out to the movies, but will see what's up when I return.

If some bug is a game killer than just relax and wait until it gets fixed.  I'm sure you can find something else to occupy your time until then especially if Toady keeps up at the pace he is with knocking out one thing after another.
Jesus Christ, man, why are you acting so self-righteous? You're on the internet arguing about a game called Dwarf Fortress. Sure, so am I, but at least I'm not acting like I'm the only one that plays sports or knows what the sky looks like.

Everytime a bugfix release happens in DF2010, there's a backwind of "but why isn't bug X fixed first?" - it's called ranting to destress oneself, there's no need to treat every one of those posts as a glove thrown down looking for a fight. We all expect different things from DF, learn to give consolations to frustrated people who feel their important features are still bugged while other features are getting fixed. Yes it's hard to read emotions properly when there's only text involved. Just err on the side of avoiding pointless flames.

Congrats, Psieye. This is the first time I've seen a derailed thread get put back on the rails.

What is this, a therapy session? We don't need to console someone because they're upset about a fucking video game. Grow a beard, son, and take off those elf ears!
