From The Forgotten Server development blog:
A new version of the 0.2 series has been released. This version is mostly a bug-fix release, and everyone using version 0.2.9 or older is advised to update. It fixes the annoying Lua script errors in the player death script and the NPC system and a few other issues. We hope to introduce more features in the next release. You can find the new version here: http://otland.net/f18/8-7-8-71-forgo...spirit-117046/.

To keep the 0.3 users updated; I can say that the private development branch is still not ready to be released to public. It has a few serious bugs that must be addressed first, but once they are I will be notifying elf to release the new version.

IMPORTANT NOTE TO XAMPP USERS: Although it is not very relevant to this topic, I would also like to notify everyone who is using XAMPP 1.7.3 (or anything with an outdated version of PHP for that matter) to update to XAMPP 1.7.4 (or just a newer version of PHP if you aren't using XAMPP). The older version has an issue that causes PHP to hang, and it will stop responding to other requests until PHP has been restarted. Users running the 64-bit version of PHP are not affected, but it wouldn't hurt to keep your software up to date.​

I thought 0.3 was being discontinued and the work is going towards 0.4 branch?

No, 0.4 development hasn't started yet. The current code in trunk in our private development subversion is the final version of 0.3, but it's not finished yet.

So, all the revisions and compilations on the premium boards are not 0.4?

i guess what hes saying is that they havnt started with 0.4 yet since the 8.7 update
What hes saying is that whats currently on the private svn (premium board) is not 0.4 yet, they will fix major bugs and than release it as being the final 0.3 version.
After that they can start with 0.4

I don't really think the bug with PHP affects our community, because it happens when we try to float the number which Pietia wrote before, after checking float is not used either in Gesior or Modern AAC for user input, so no worries about it.

It does affect our community, both Gesior and Modern AAC. I wouldn't have posted it if it didn't.

As far as I know it doesnt. Quoted from php.net latest news:
This release resolves a critical issue, reported as PHP bug #53632 and CVE-2010-4645, where conversions from string to double might cause the PHP interpreter to hang on systems using x87 FPU registers.
I've never seen either in Gesior or in Modern use of (double) or (float) for user input but always (int) which will just return 2 in case of this bug.

Here is a script that you might guys run in order to see if your system is vulnerable to this issue. (in command line)
http://php.net/distributions/test_bug53632.txt

Either way you should always have things updated to the latest stable version.
