Dwarf Fortress Patch Next Month

The Dwarf Fortress website reveals the first patch in a couple of years is coming early next month to Dwarf Fortress, Bay 12 Games' throwback Roguelike-like city-builder (thanks Ant via Reddit). The post, from the beginning of the month, points to their June report for further details, and sums up the plan thusly:

It's almost here! After over two years in the making, we plan to release the next version of Dwarf Fortress in the beginning of July. We are very grateful to those that made it possible by supporting us financially all this time. Dwarf Fortress has become more than a game in the twelve years since we started. It is now a crazy art project that everyone can engage in! Whether it's creating the awesome mods, or helping newbies learn to play, everybody helps out. There are going to be a lot of bugs in the beginning so one major way to help out would be to contribute to the bug tracker. Dwarf Fortress would never have made it this far without such a strong community. Thanks to everyone on the Bay 12 forums and beyond for spreading the word. It's going to be a busy few months coming up so thank you again in advance for your patience and generosity!
