Recent minor changes (hunting, promotions, backstab, mixing, reptiles, web map) (Waba)12 Jul 2015

1. Mobiles have become a tad smarter about their abilities to cross deep water
   rooms when moving to a destination (when patrolling, hunting, and so on).

   This should mostly fix mobiles being stuck in weird places, but be aware
   that it might affect your strategies. Please report any unexpected
   behaviour (Waba).

2. We congratulate Arcane on his promotion to Maia (Wright)
   and Azan on his promotion to Maia (Builder).

3. Some mobiles who will attempt to backstab you will now be a little bit
   smarter about it (Dáin).

4. The "mix" command can no longer be used while fighting (Dáin).

5. The ferocious reptiles are no longer susceptible to charm (Force).

6. The web map has been updated, and is available on http://mume.org/mume.php
   We also added some historic maps to the same page (Tempuntekijä).
