Whew, we finally put Release 18 out in UK Habbo. This is a pretty massive release, the website is fully redesigned and there’s a new system for the avatars. Users seem to like it which is excellent news. It’ll go out in other countries as it stabilizes.
In other news, the Netherlands Habbo got the local police to round up a few guys who’d been distributing keyloggers with the sole purpose of stealing items in Habbo. Made the news in Reuters so might be you’ve seen this. I’m happy that police is finally understanding that stealing furniture might be a crime. As the news says, the one dude got around 4000 EUR worth of stuff.
Update: BBC picked the story.
