MythDevelopers have released the second and final beta for the Myth III: The Wolf Age 1.1 patch. The patch itself will be available on April 15th so you still have some time to clock in those last hours of testing to squash any serious bugs still left in the code. For a full mirror list, head over to the Mill and snag the files in your flavour of choice. [Mac | Win]

Doobie writes in with some long awaited news:
Myth II v1.3.2 Released & 1.4 Announced! Project Magma and MythDev are proud to present the first non-Bungie update for Myth II: Soulblighter. Version 1.3.2 takes care of a few compability problems with newer operating systems. The game has been carbonized allowing it to run natively under Mac OS X, and the flashing cursor bug that has plagued users of Direct3D under Windows 2000/XP has been eliminated. Other improvements include increased network security for multiplayer, and reduced chat lag. Myth II v1.3.2 will be completely backwards compatible with version 1.3, and works on both PlayMyth.Net and Marius.Net.For more info and to download the patch, check out MythDev's Myth 2 page which includes a full mirror list for both versions.
But the good news doesn't stop there! Now that carbonization is out of the way, we can move onto more exciting improvements in a future release, Myth 1.4 which will contain over 100 additional bug fixes and enhancements including an optional "TFL Gamplay" feature that perfectly replicates TFL in the Myth II client, effectively bringing both communities into one program.
