Version 1.50 makes it easier than ever to configure connection to a server and start playing. Just download and unpack a server package for your platform (OS X, Windows and Linux are supported), activate it, and scan the displayed QR code with the iOS app to connect. Installation on cloud servers is also supported, and simple instructions are provided for popular cloud server providers, allowing to have a server for as low as $5 USD/month instead of using a home computer.
Other changes since version 1.00 include support for rendering multiple z-levels, support for creature graphics packs, refined and unified dark UI throughout the app, and support for number of original game features that were missing from the initial release.
