I am pleased to release version 5.02 of MUSHclient. See the release notes for more details.
- Improved message in assertion in Text_To_Speech plugin, if SAPI cannot be loaded. Thanks Fiendish!
- Added more SAPI commands into Text_To_Speech plugin. Namely: faster, slower, rate, voice, test, punctuation filtering, voice listing, buffer clearing, spoken help, debug printing. Coded by Fiendish.
- Fixed bug in Timer management. Thanks Fiendish!
- Fixed bug in Trigger management. Thanks Fiendish!
- Fixed bug where Timer dialogs did not appear in fixed width font when wanted.
- Fixed bug where unlabelled timers might fire out of the sequence they were submitted in.
- Don't batch up notes inside plugin calls, if the current line length is zero.
- Fixed bug where if you hid the scroll bar with the SetScroll script function, the scroll bar would be briefly redrawn each time a new line was displayed in the output buffer.
- Upgraded LPEG library from version 0.12.2 to version 1.0.0.
- Added new script function utils.menufontsize (n)
- Improved the speed of adding a hotspot with WindowAddHotspot. The test for whether the mouse is over the newly-added hotspot has been optimized somewhat. This is intended to speed up adding many hotspots at once.
- Updated PCRE library from version 8.37 to 8.39.
- Updated PNG library from version 1.6.18 to 1.6.23.
- Updated SQLite3 library from version 22.214.171.124 to 3.13.0.
- For ease of compiling by other users of MUSHclient, the PNG, PCRE, zLib and SQLite3 libraries are now included in the source distribution.
- Updated Lua JSON library to be compatible with newer version of LPEG.

You are strongly advised to backup (make a copy of) your existing MUSHclient world files before upgrading. Just in case.
If there are any problems, please post messages to the Bug Reports, Suggestions, or General parts of this forum.
MD5 sum for the installer
If you do an md5sum on mushclient502.exe you should get this result:
The forum post a small script to sumcheck the MUSHclient download shows how you can write a small script in MUSHclient to do the sumcheck. It also lists some places you can download md5sum.exe to do the sumcheck (if this is the first time you have downloaded MUSHclient).
One way of doing an md5sum is to download the Installer_sumcheck plugin from the Plugins page (RH click that link and "save link as" to get the plugin). Then install the plugin (see the File menu -> Plugins) and type "md5sum" which lets you browse to the installer file, load it, and display the sumcheck.
Message about "Failed to load resources file"
Some users are reporting getting a message like "Failed to load resources file: C:\Programme\MUSHclient\locale\DE.dll - trying English file" when starting MUSHclient (the DE.dll part might be another language like FR.dll).
This will be because you have customized the "locale" of MUSHclient to other than EN (English).
See the How to localize MUSHclient messages into other languages forum posting for more details about localization.
To fix this, find the directory you installed MUSHclient into (eg. "C:\Program Files\MUSHclient\") and then locate the subdirectory "locale". In that you will find a file en.dll. Copy or rename that file to match the missing file in the message (eg. copy en.dll to de.dll).
Alternative suggestion: Go into the File menu -> Global Preferences -> General, and change the field "Locale code" back to "EN" (English) and then it should look for EN.DLL next time.
Warning about Lua 5.1 upgrade (September 2006)
MUSHclient version 3.80 upgraded the Lua script engine from Lua 5.0.2 to 5.1.1. If you are upgrading to this version from an earlier version than 3.80, you should read Version 3.80 released - with Lua 5.1 script engine - this post has recommendations about what is required if you use Lua scripting or Lua plugins. Note: Since version 3.80 was released, the version of Lua has been upgraded. It is currently 5.1.4. Some versions (versions 4.49 to 4.52 of MUSHclient) may incorrectly report they are using Lua 5.1.1 when you open a world.
Warning about upgrading from versions prior to 3.21 (May 2002)
MUSHclient version 3.85 (onwards) no longer reads the old "binary" world files produced by versions prior to 3.21. For more information about this please read the forum post Versions 3.85 onwards no longer support world files created prior to version 3.21 - this post has recommendations about how to upgrade your world files if you are upgrading from a version earlier than 3.21.
Note that version 3.21 was released quite a few years ago (May 2002), so people who have recently installed MUSHclient should not have any problems.
The source code for this version is available from GitHub:
You can directly download the source from the Downloads page (https://github.com/nickgammon/mushclient/archive/master.zip), or preferably install Git and use the appropriate commands to clone or pull the source. For some suggestions about getting the source from Git see MUSHclient source being made available on GitHub forum posting.
If you install Git, subsequent downloads (of new versions) will be much faster as it only needs to download the changes, not the whole source. Also by using Git you can find out exactly what has changed from version to the next.
