With the change to global echos in the next reboot, the GMCP handler plugin that comes in the custom MM MUSHclient bundle will need to be updated. We have taken this as an opportunity to work with Ruthgul to put together a new bundle with a new version of MUSH and updated plugins. The VI bundle contains the same upgrades plus some new plugins.

Iyara's Guide to updating MUSH without losing your old settings:

-Rename your old MUSH folder. The new name doesn't matter, as long as it's changed.
-Download a new copy of the MUSH package from: mushclient494_other
or for the VI client: mushclient494_vi
and unzip the new version into the same location as your old MUSH folder.

-In your old MUSH folder, rename your world file.
-Copy the renamed world file from the old MUSH folder into the same place in the new one. (MUSHclient/worlds folder)
-If you want to preserve your maps, copy the map file from old to new, replacing the new file. (mm_mapper.db, in the main mush folder)
-Copy custom plugins, if you have any, in the same way.

-Run the new version of MUSH, and close the world that automatically opens.
-Click File -> Global Preferences, then select the default world file, and remove it.
-Click Add, select your copied world file, and click OK.
Then click File -> Open Worlds In Startup List.
-Log into MM as usual.
-Your map and captures windows have probably moved, reposition them to the desired locations.
I never said it would be easy, I only said it would be worth it.
