The version shown on this page is considered the latest stable version. That is, it has been released for a while with no major bugs reported. However often more recent versions are available on the MUSHclient Announcements part of the Forum. Follow that link to see if there is a more recent version announced. Look for a thread with a heading like "Version 4.xx released".
Newly-released versions are often quite stable, unless they were released only yesterday, in which case there might not have been time for bug reports to filter in.

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.

Many frequently-encountered problems are discussed on the MUSHclient FAQ forum posting. Please read that before reporting difficulties.
We have had some success running MUSHclient under Wine (Wine Is Not an Emulator) - a system for running Windows program under Linux.
Our most recent successful test has been with wine-1.0.1. If you have problems with MUSHclient crashing when trying to open a Notepad window, try upgrading Wine to version 1.0.1 or higher. Alternatively, go into "Configure Wine" and set the Windows Version to Windows 98.
MUSHclient has a "/wine" command-line option that you can try if you have problems starting MUSHclient under Wine. This disables some of the COM (Component Object Model) calls, and disables scripting. Lua scripting is still available, even with "/wine" specified. However, our most recent test has MUSHclient running successfully without using the /wine option.
Wine can be obtained from http://www.winehq.org/.

Warning! - some of the forum threads mentioned above also have links to downloading files of the same name, but these are generally for older versions of MUSHclient which used Lua 5.0. The files on this page are the correct ones to use with the version of MUSHclient which you download here (which uses Lua 5.1).
