EnvyMUD had two major release versions: the original release (1.0) in 1994,[2] and version 2.0 in 1995. The latest release version is 2.2 that was finalized in 1997.

ISBN 0-13-101816-7. ...several major codebases (standalone MUD program suites) were created from the basic DikuMUD original, the main ones being Circle, Silly, and Merc. Merc spawned ROM (Rivers of MUD) and Envy, among others, and these in turn had their own spinoffs.
