Latest version of the source code as of November 6, 2011.
The game can be downloaded here > Sourceforge.net and to play on multi-player servers the same version number should be used (latest available version)
The game and its creation is completely community driven and an active and welcoming forum can be found here > Manicdigger.sourceforge.net
Anyone is welcome to download and play, and anyone with sufficient knowledge and capability is welcome to offer input on how to go about improving the game. The source code is freely available to those that can dabble in such things, and I'm sure the creator of Manic Digger would welcome pro-active input.
The game is far from dead and those developing it are still very much active and involved, I myself have other things more pressing in my life, but don't let that stop you good folk from trying out what is still a fantastic game.
Again, I must state the versions which are available here on IndieDB are outdated and will be removed soon.
I must restate that current news is found mostly on the games homepage or forums:
for the nightly builds please download the latest versions from this repository:
