ACK!MUD 4.3.1 by Zenithar. GCC4 cleanup by Samson. AckFUSS by Kline.

Wow, this was a huge version. I think it's got the largest changelog yet. Highlights? Stability. Sure there's new features and even a newbie school, but this build has ran solid for weeks on my development machine; it even has a clean shutdown in Valgrind (and no errors, to boot!). Some cool new things include a new death system (turn into a ghost), special charm items that grant passive bonuses by sitting in a player's inventory, and a few new flags to give builders better control over mobs and items/doors.
