The latest bugfix weekend focused on issues inside Ankh-Morpork (though some of the fixes will extend beyond its borders).

Kadath, Kake, and Guildenstern made several outstanding contributions to recitif long-standing issues.

Most noteworthy are the following fixes:

- The Master of Ceremonies quest can now be completed by Adventurers. Clarifications to indicate the roles of Adventurers and Fools have been made.

- Setting off a trap in the haunted mansion will give more helpful feedback to those with elemental shielding.

- Searching the shelves in the Alchemists' Guild is significantly more likely to result in finding coloured acid.

- Job market delivery jobs have been changed to ensure that players should no longer be asked to deliver to inaccessible or frequently killed npcs, or to fetch especially hard to obtain items outside of the "Rare Items" delivery job.

- Several descriptions of delivery job recipients have been updated to more accurately reflect where they can be found.

- The "check" command for ticking off items on a job writ will now work provided you have a writing implement somewhere about your person, even if it's in a container.

- You can no longer use a quartermaster's shovel for street repair jobs.

- Constable Dorfl will now arrest criminals after knocking them out, rather than just leaving them unconscious on the street.

- Pets should only be thrown in jail if they are actually in the room with their owner at the time of arrest.

- Attempting to enter an area of The Dysk theatre that you don't have a ticket for should no longer stop you from using commands like "applaud" or "boo".

- The nomination limit in magistrate elections has been changed to "at most 7 plus yourself".

- Council honour rolls now appear in the descriptions of the rooms they're located in. You can also "list honour roll brief" if you only want to see the names and not the other details.

- The spangly belt now has a spanglier description; it is also slightly less heavy.

- The Apex Club admin office will respect your temporal_reality when telling you how long your rent is paid for.

- The Apex Club and the Thieves' Guild have agreed that theft on club premises now also falls under Guild policies, i.e. it will go on quota for Guild members and be punished for others.

- The priest listings on in-game top ten tables can now be sorted by deity.

You are encouraged to provide these upstanding creators a beverage of their choosing the next time you run into them in one of Ankh-Morpork's drinking houses.
