I am pleased to release version 4.07 of MUSHclient. See the release notes for more details.


  • Ruby scripting is now available. Personally I haven't had much luck getting it to work properly, but some Ruby scripters may have more luck. It uses the same scripting interface as all the other languages, except Lua, so if there are problems it is probably with the Ruby scripting interface, and not MUSHclient.
  • Some documentation clarifications.
  • Changed saving variables to that the tab character can now be saved, and correctly restored, from world files and plugin state files.
  • A fix to the rex regular expression library (used by Lua scripters) to handle duplicate named patterns.
Unless you think any of these changes apply to you, I wouldn't bother installing this version.

Warning about Lua 5.1 upgrade

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.

Warning about upgrading from versions prior to 3.21

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 about 5 years ago, so people who have recently installed MUSHclient should not have any problems.

MD5 sum for the installer

If you do an md5sum on the installer above 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.

Since the changes to this version are fairly minor, I have released a "diff" file which is the differences between this version and version 4.06 source.

This file is http://www.gammon.com.au/files/mushclient/src/version_4.07_diffs.txt

Its MD5sum is 55d12053e6da56337aab0c89e36deff8
