22 - use libecb to get stuff done.
23 - fix "Fontconfig warning: FcPattern object hintstyle does not accept value DontCare".
24 - fix "fonts.conf", line 88: unknown element "blank".
25 - use ska::flat_hash_map instea dof perl HV in map drawing.
26 - port to C++.
27 - update to newer glib.
28 - update to EV 4.0 API.

31 - implement separate account creation and login options.
32 - slightly improved speed of command completion.
33 - treat - and _ like spaces when scoring completion matches.
34 - passwords are no longer stored in cleartext, nor send
35 to the server as cleartext.
36 - cryptograhically protect login process against password
37 token sniffing.
38 - use face caching mechanism for skill_info and spell_paths,
39 reducing data transfers at login time.
40 - clean up protocol setup/login phase by hardwiring
41 deliantra protocol extensions.
42 - improve label/entry/text size requests by requesting the size again
43 with the real width, but new height.

52 - enable auto-hinting (mona needs it), and as a side effect, also
53 enable it for dejavu, so we can remove the hinting instructions
54 for a file size/quality trade-off.
55 - fetch command list for completion from the server.
56 - fetch help strings for skills and spells from the server.
57 (A00275a73) Sat Jan 28 00:49:59 CET 2012

81 - use new urlader, which, due to some fuck-up in the build script, was not
82 installed correctly.
83 - use binmode for Digest::MD5 so verification no longer fails on
84 windows.
85 - update IO::AIO so verification no longer fails on windows.

89 - fix npc dialog.
90 - properly set window and icon title.
91 - send missing package messages also to the server as crashreport.
92 - bump version to 3.0 to officially announce auto-upgrade capabilities

97 - implement online update when run from Urlader.
98 - fix a bug where the fog of war texture wasn't initialised in areas
99 that haven't been seen yet, causing blinking/glittering effects.
100 - Pod::POM now understands =encoding.
101 - minor speed enhancements.
102 - package libjpeg in the linux client.
103 - convert more watchers from EV to AE.
104 - call Mix_Init instead of loading/unloading on demand.

109 - (binary builds) completely switched away from PAR to Urlader.
110 - (os x binary) work around OS X passing some serial number as commandline
111 argument, breaking all programs supporting commandline arguments.
112 (HOW STUPID CAN THEY BE? WILL IT EVER BOTTOM OUT?).
113 - (os x binary) work around os x dll hell different, maybe that
114 fixes some of the reported lion issues.
115 - (windows binary) update sdl, sdl_mixer, sdl_image, also bundle mikmod.
116
117 2.11 Sat Apr 24 10:08:34 CEST 2010
118 - support overriding the audio driver at runtime, for folks who know
119 what they are doing.
120 - upgrade to libSDL 1.2.14/SDL_mixer 1.2.11 for the GNU/Linux and
121 windows binaries, and also compile in multiple drivers (pulseaudio
122 disabled currently because it's too sucky and crashes on probe).
123 - replace level by minimum level, and damage by effective casting level
124 (for servers > 2.93).

132 - display audio driver name that is in use.
133 - try to show splashscreen earlier.
134
135 2.10 Fri Jan 15 16:14:02 CET 2010
136 - fix blending factors to avoid white-out when fow_intensity > 0.
137
138 2.09 Tue Dec 22 01:40:24 CET 2009
139 - implement smooth fow/lighting transitions by blending.
140 - make fow texture configurable and add stipple/transparent versions.
141 - empty "Host" field will now default to gameserver.deliantra.net.
142 - do not crash when the user enters an invalid value into "Host".
143 - fix positional rounding on (pre-c99) windows.
144 - use a pack/unpack alignment of 1 by default everywhere, drop alignment
145 code in fow_texture.
146
147 2.06 Fri Dec 4 15:35:33 CET 2009
148 - work around the Apple/NVIDIA font problem (a bug in glTexSubImage2D that
149 apple has no intention to fix, so we do the slow read/update/write way).
150 - work around various ATI/Mesa driver bugs in glTexImage2D by always
151 providing initialisation data for textures. Do they ever test their drivers
152 with, say, some newbie opengl code?
153 - stat change messages did not differentiate between attuned, repelled etc.
154 - work around a bug in the nvidia driver which mishandles alpha textures
155 with env mode REPLACE, causing all magic maps to be white only.
156 - do not use mipmapping for tiles - the trade-off was not worth it.
157 - fix packaging the pango modules twice in the linux and windows binaries.
158
159 (2.05) Tue Sep 29 11:21:00 CEST 2009
160 - intermediate os x binary release only.
161 - linking against the opengl library works everywhere, except on Mac OS X 10.6,
162 which some people even spent money on (this seems to break a great number
163 of opengl apps actually).
164 - (os x binary) update libsdl to 1.2.14.
165
166 2.05 Tue Sep 15 20:31:15 CEST 2009
167 - changed completer algorithm, thanks go to marcmagus!
168 - try to work around crashes in SDL_Mixer when reinitialising it.
169
170 2.04 Sun Apr 26 21:03:40 CEST 2009
171 - work around incompatible ABI change between 1.22 and 1.24 by using a runtime check,
172 this really is a bug that needs fixing inside pango.
173 - include a japanese font (Mona, selected for license and size) with the distribution.
174 - include our own fonts.conf file, to speed up startup and to be able to control
175 font selection.
176 - change confusing login successful message to "connect to server successful".
177 - update BDB and EV in win32 builds to work around the event loop creation bug.
178 - fall back to blocking dns resolve before using a hardcoded address.
179
180 2.03 Tue Jan 20 14:54:30 CET 2009

182 - move toplevel menu into a menu popup.
183 - use fontsize for chekcbox size requests to get a better layout.
184 - autopickup spellbooks, skillscrolls and valuables by default.
185 - automatically save config/layout on exit and add config options
186 to Setup=>Client to control this.
187 - fix positioning of popup windows.
188 - move autopickup enable (formerly inhibit) to menubar.
189 - correctly display face changes for inventory objects.
190 - verify databases if we are the first process to register, to
191 detect corruption as is common on windows (but not limited to
192 windows, unfortunately).
193 - fall back to backup config file if main config file cannot be parsed.
194 - reduce shimmering during smooth scrolls.
195 - rely on AnyEvent to work around totally broken windows vista
196 tcp/ip subsystem once more (where getpeername returns fantasy
197 ports).
198 - use newer BDB version that works around windows vista tcp/ip
199 breakage.
200 - initialise the default resolver during startup, as windows vista
201 forces us back to the desktop when doing this later(!).
202
203 2.02 Wed Dec 24 06:02:53 CET 2008
204 - mark hidden mapspaces visually with a question mark.
205 - make hidden spaces as light as the darkest normal spaces.
206 - don't lie about the window size anymore in fear of crashing
207 the server (as we are dealing with deliantra servers only these days).
208 - correctly draw the speech bubbles and other overlays even when the
209 topmost face isn't visible.
210 - fix swirly tile draw offset.
211 - fix a crash when the user clicks on the map during log-in.
212 - incorporate tips of the day by botz (former madness).
213 - handle failure to load a music face more gracefully (still
214 log the error, but do not crash, instead, ignore the failure).
215 - try to log, instead of crash, on the "cannot call update method"
216 problem.
217
218 2.01 - (Mon Dec 15 00:41:33 CET 2008)
219 - rewrote the client tutorial which can be found via the 'Help!' button.
220 - fixed the mostly random switching of message window tabs when
221 new tabs were added.
222 - small typo fix in tooltip on the Skills page in the playerbook.
223 - avoid accessing potentially undefined memory when drawing the map.
224 - fixed speech bubbles which were drawn below some objects sometimes.
225
226 2.0 Fri Dec 5 15:42:51 CET 2008
227 - the Log window can't be close anymore by alt+x
228 - pressing return or alt+x directly after start won't crash the client
229 anymore.
230 - the Log window is displayed correctly now after start.
231 - darken the invisible/cached parts of the map further.
232
233 0.9978 Sun Nov 9 14:35:41 CET 2008
234 - correctly smooth-move the healthbar as well.
235 - own text is emphasized in the NPC dialogues now.

239
240 0.9977 Tue Sep 30 09:27:29 CEST 2008

242 on login.
243 - fixed the often choppy smooth movement.
244 - switch to proportional font in log view.
245 - improve the paragraph indent hack to align characters better.
246 - tweak server message output.
247 - optimise visibility handing in multiplexers (only put the current tab
248 into visible state).
249 - reduce the number of unnecessary refreshes.
250 - allow empty multiplexers.
251 - fixed clearing issue in the inventory upon logout.
252 - use the same workarounds for pango for gnu/linux binaries as we use for osx,
253 but additionally patch the pango library because stupid braindead idiotic
254 debian maintainers of course apply custom patches that completely break it.
255
256 0.9976 Fri Sep 5 17:28:30 CEST 2008
257 - use keysym not unicode symbol, maybe that helps with some of those keyboard
258 issues on OS X.
259 - treat meta like alt for built-ins, for OS X.
260 - fix tab tooltip listing key shortcut off by one.
261 - disable texture compression with apple software renderer. if you want to get
262 something that works, apple is for you. not.
263 - fix text encoding for item description tooltips.
264 - enlarge window borders considerably.
265 - support lzf-compressed packets.
266 - support fragmented packets.
267 - send crash and opengl vendor information to server for better debugging.
268 - fix crash when displaying the tutorial with the precompiled os x
269 binary: libjpeg collided with libJPEG - long live case-insensitivity :/
270 - cater for the incompatible changes in berkeley db 4.7.
271 - enable highest-resolution video mode again.

273 - avoid a crash when the minimap is reduced to zero size.
274 - work around a bug in perl 5.8 perls (Bareword "Socket::AF_UNIX"...).
275
276 0.9975 Wed Aug 27 22:16:27 CEST 2008
277 - use biggest video mode <= 1024x768 by default now (previous releases had a bug
278 that caused them to select the smallest vdieo mode available).
279 - ported to the rather horridly broken apple os x platform,
280 using macports (the only non-broken part of the whole thing).
281 - clarify/fix weight/value autopickup option with a tooltip and a server change.
282
283 0.9974 Fri Aug 1 15:45:59 CEST 2008
284 - implement smooth scrolling for the player.
285 - try a different workaround to maybe register Deliantra::Client.
286 - support switching off of alpha framebuffers, to work around
287 possible fallback-to-software-renderer problems.

295 player ghost images.
296
297 0.9973 Mon Jul 7 09:27:59 CEST 2008
298 - added a dummy "package Deliantra::Client" to bin/deliantra, as
299 cpan stupidly cannot install distributions by name.
300 - convert to new non-blocking API.
301 - support IPv6 server connections.
302 - the chat tabs now have tooltips again.
303
304 0.9972 Thu May 22 22:45:01 CEST 2008
305 - save all map changes in map cache, not just the current map (this fixes
306 the problem of map border "black out" in the minimap).
307 - use an even more compact format for minimap data.
308 - use an uncompressed cache for minimap data, increases memory requirements
309 (~1mb) but saves compression.
310 - close container, clear inventory, floorbox etc. to avoid a crash when
311 clicking on them after logging out.
312 - support xml formatting in ex replies (item tooltips, requires server
313 2.54+).
314 - try to ignore repeated keypress-events for movement, as
315 these are usually keyrepeats.
316 - added default (0) for the shift_fire_stop setting
317 - write client.cf in pretty-printed-json.
318 - avoid crashes if map cache is corrupted.

324 - fix stat tooltips by not lowercasing keywords in pod2wiki.
325 - fix longstanding bug where the stats tab would be removed during chargen.
326 - fix menu alignment.
327 - change podwiki format to be slightly more generic.
328 - ignore pseudo-items in floorbox, only show in inventory.
329
330 0.9970 Sun Mar 30 13:30:47 CEST 2008
331 - fix a bug in tile id allocation, the effect of this bug
332 was effectively disabling the tile cache, upgrade is highly
333 recommended.
334 - fix npc dialog.
335 - upgrade the database schema (i.e. nuke it...).
336 - only open the database before forking the bg server.
337 - PRECOMPILED BINARY: use packaged libdb4.6 instead of libdb4.4.
338 - use newer BDB module (might fix the filename encoding issue under win32).
339 - use a real bdb sequence for the faceid, for better performance.
340

344
345 0.9967 Mon Mar 24 01:24:07 CET 2008

347 problems under windows).
348 - work around a bug on windows where the layout font is being ignored.
349
350 0.9966 Sat Mar 22 14:26:05 CET 2008
351 - when the message window is hidden and the input is activated, it will
352 become visible again.
353 - the max number of paragraphs in the chattabs were not limited,
354 leading to a naughty memory leak
355 - the highlighting of the chattabs were deep blue where they should have been
356 deep red :-)
357 - fixed a small inconvenience in the history handling of chat tab entries
358 (hitting cursor-up or cursor-down won't erase what you typed by accident
359 anymore).
360
361 0.9965 Sat Jan 19 05:51:39 CET 2008
362 - work around a database race condition by using single-threaded
363 database access.
364
365 0.9964 Fri Jan 18 06:30:13 CET 2008
366 - fixed a bug where the message fontsize wasn't set correctly
367 - do not call glTexSubimage2D on 0x0 bitmaps, as this
368 crashes newer nvidia drivers.
369 - fix chatbox label padding.
370 - further rename database directory.
371 - further "branding" of cfplus => deliantra.
372
373 0.9963 Sun Jan 6 18:27:02 CET 2008

375 - ignore keyboard modifiers we are never interested in.
376 - improve interactivity by using a prepare, not an idle watcher,
377 for screen refreshes.
378 - limit the time spent in database handling, so we refresh the screen
379 even during ongoing heavy texture loading.
380 - load tile map at startup, not at connect time.
381 - tweak database accesses.
382 - widget protocol version 2, supports ui templates.
383 - increase horizontal padding for buttons a bit.
384 - preallocate texture name when switching video modes and the
385 texture can only be loaded in the background to avoid
386 something else taking over.
387 - increase padding for all text entries.
388 - work around a bugfix in pango that no longer is necessary
389 (but causes a bug with new pango versions, argh.)
390 - use supposedly faster readonly pango functions wherever possible.
391 - Canvas widget properly restores line and point widths.
392 - fix padding calculation.
393 - change semantics for align/valign in labels to behave like other
394 alignment values.
395
396 0.9962 Thu Dec 27 14:29:02 CET 2007 (download.com only)
397 - changed minimum required resolution to 800x640.

399 - fixed unneccessary repetition when firing in a direction
400 when 'only shift-up stops fire' is off.
401 - do not render some glyphs twice. doh.
402 - fix two problems that would cause endless
403 refreshes even when idle (up to 60Hz).
404 - optimise refresh strategy to not refresh more often than 60hz,
405 even if it means to delay updates up to 1/60th of a second.
406 - updated the dejavu fonts to version 2.22.
407 - switch from Crossfire to Deliantra module.
408 - switch from ~/.crossfire to ~/.deliantra,
409 move database from cf to deliantra at startup.
410 - fix some opengl races that could freeze deliantra during shutdowns.
411 - moved client-specific modules into a private subdirectory.
412 - moved client-specific resources into a private subdirectory.
413
414 0.9961 Tue Dec 25 20:22:51 CET 2007
415 - fix texture-reload problems when changing resolutions
416 by forcing the reuse of the same texture name.
417 - save and restore glyph cache textures when changing resolutions.
418
419 0.9960 Tue Dec 25 10:38:17 CET 2007
420 - fixed item animation by taking advantage of ev_periodic.

443 with activestate perl.
444
