A small package to get people started with Dwarf Fortress on linux.
Firstly identify which version of your linux distribution you are using. If you are using a x64 bit system then you should download the x64 PyLNP interface, and 32 bit should download i686 PyLNP interface.

Update: 20th, November 2014, R1 - Updated DF to v0.40.19, added dfhack v0.40.19 r1, updated graphics, updated DT memory layouts, updated PyLNP to 0.8b
Here is another release for November, mostly related to livestock.

Here is another friendly little release.
Major bug fixes
Fixed collapsing shrines
Fixed army crash/bad behavior near the right/lower edge of the map

Other bug fixes/tweaks
Made stress levels drop faster the longer no stressors are applied
Made gathering plants from the ground add to herbalist skill properly again
Made plants that grow in winter-spring plantable at all proper times (Quietust)
Optimized flag checks for non-windows OSs (ag)
Fixed problem deleting stockpile links in the case that stockpile had multiple give/take settings
Fixed blinking behavior for stockpiles/zones vs. ramps/stairs
Fixed blinking behavior for designations vs. anything obscuring them
Fixed double untranslated name in thoughts screen

The purpose of this release is to make stress from long-term separation due to goblin snatching less severe and to stop attackers from always winning in post-world-generation non-player battles. The fix for the latter could not be done cleanly at this time, so the battle readouts in legends are a little off compared to the ones from world-gen, but defenders are very often successful now. I also fixed some missing aunts/uncles/cousins in the listing of relatives.
If I forgot people, please let me know and I'll include them in the list.
