Summary0000617: Material preference on military dwarves doesn't work correctly.
Descriptionsetting dwarves to steel only equipment with enough equipment available still makes them wear the old (the equipment they've been carrying) iron equipment.
forcing them to go naked didn't work either, only unassigning the whole squad and training room did.
they then proceeded to go around completely naked. readding them to a squad with only steel equipment allowed makes them pick up nothing or the old iron equipment again.
exact match was enabled though not sure if that's actually used in the way i think it is.

Equipment doesn't update automatically. Are the updates not working at all? I'll need more information or a save or something to get at this one.

My experience with previous versions (haven't tried fortress mode in 0.31.06 yet) is that equipment assigned by Arsenal Dwarf never gets unassigned. Changing uniform, dumping equipment etc has no effect.
The only way to unassign equipment from a dwarf was to delete all squads, remove all military officers and delete barracks, then do everything from scratch.

I can confirm a similar problem as of 0.31.08, but using a save imported from 31.05 or so. If I create a new squad, assigning a uniform with all steel armor, the squad commander seems to consistently get exactly the right equipment (the best available steel for each location). This may be a coincidence, but it has happened consistently for me.

If I add a single dwarf to a squad containing one or more dwarves that are already equipped, with partial matches enabled, the arsenal dwarf will often assign one or two pieces of steel and assign leather armor for the other slots. With exact matches, he only assigns a few pieces of steel and leaves the armor assignment incomplete despite the availability of the correct armor.

The arsenal dwarf also does not seem to consistently assign flasks or backpacks to the dwarves, i.e. he will assign one flask to one other dwarf when updating the equipment upon addition of a new dwarf to the squad. The dwarves do not seem to immediately pick up the backpacks or flasks once assigned as they usually do with armor.

this should be resolved for a while now, as i didnt notice the "get new equip" bugs since the workaround release with aresnaldwarf going inactive

Toady may need an up-to-date save (0.34.02+) to fix this problem. It would be helpful for someone to upload a save to [^] and post the link here.
