Here is one point not mentioned and if so missed it.
With muds, most of the things that get upgraded are bugs in the code, more features in the game for players and quests or quizzes to be added. The play of the mud is still the same. So the need for changing the client is not needed. And here is one thought you can think about. With accessible screen readers updating the software can do 1 of 2 things.
1. It can break already useable software by screen reader.
2. Make the software more useable.
A good example of this is skipe.
So always upgrading to latest and greatest is not always the thing to do when using a screen reader.

Mud! Client! Here! It! Needs! Regularly! And! Constantly! Updating! Get it?
Muds don't only change every few years, they change and are being updated
all the time, and so should the clients to use with them.

Hi,

Not true. GMA is still very much active. It is true that they are
usually pretty quiet in between releases, but they consistantly
release a new product or update on a 18 month to 24 month release
schedule.  Since 2006 there has been Shades of Doom 1.2, VIP Mud in
2008, and finally Time of Conflict in 2010. I wouldn't say they
haven't released anything in years since that's not true. If you are
expecting releases every few months or something then you have an
extremely unrealistic view of software development, game development
in particular, as the kinds of games GMA regularly produces take a
long time to create. I should know since I'm writing games with
similar quality and features myself.

Cheers!
