1. We congratulate Orlanth on his promotion to Maia Builder.

2. "Compare" Command (Elfan)

   Credits: Elfan (mudlle), Rogon (idea), and Waba (mudlle supervision).

3. Boards Message Ordering (Dáin)
   Boards will now list the threads that have the most recent posts last.

4. "Herblores" Command Syntax (Dáin)

5. "Practice" Command Output (Dáin)
   Your skill level as described in "practice" outside guilds has been changed
   to better match what guild masters tell you about your skill level.
   This fixes a rounding error, where the perceived boundaries between skill
   levels didn't work correctly.

   Also, the output of "practice" outside a guild was tweaked a tiny bit.
