Branch: CURRENT, Version: 0.2.1nb2, Package name: xscorch-0.2.1nb2, Maintainer: snj

XScorch is a clone of the olden-days DOS game "Scorch".
It is an extremely addictive war game where any mixture of
humans an computer AIs control separate tanks (teams are
possible) and attempt to blow up or arrange to blow up the
other tanks on the field (which can vary from rugged,
mountainous terrain to flat plains). The last tank on the
field is the winner.

xscorch: Update to 0.2.1

Changes in 0.2.1
------------------

   KNOWN BUGS:
    * Leap Frogs fail to leap in Interleaved Mode, because the land
      is not cleared by one explosion before the next missile is animated.
    * Some moves/items are interpreted locally instead of sent through
      the network server like they should be.  It contributes to desync.
    * Graphics/Computers are fast - hangs and crashes have been reported.
    * The wedge code sometimes draws straight ends instead of rounded ones.
    * The man page is out of date enough to notice.

   BUG FIXES:
    * Audited for 64-bit pointers and should now run on 64-bit platforms.
    * Hans de Goede of the Fedora project fixed a stack smash in saddconf.
    * Fix from Sayu for roller infinite loop on elastic/rubbery walls bug.

   MISCELLANEOUS:
    * Updated the FSF's address in our GPL notices.
    * Upgraded various autotools cruft so it kinda works with newer versions.
    * Patch from Ilya Barygin to allow linking with the --as-needed option.
    * Added autoselection of h_addr_list[0] vs. h_addr.
    * Updated the libtoolization.

   GTK 2.0 CONVERSION
    * GTK >= 2.20 is now required.  I got tired of the GTK habit of
      constantly coming up with a new shiny thing and deprecating every
      way that used to be the right way to do stuff, so I am not going
      to even vaguely try to support GTK < 2.20.
    * Fixed segfault in some menus caused by incorrect use of GtkDialogBox.
    * Changed yet more random interfaces GTK changed for whatever reason.
    * We need to finish GTK2 support.  We are using allow deprecated some.
      1. GdkFont is deprecated, so all the font code still needs rewritten.
      2. The chat window used GtkText and still need to be rewritten.
      3. sgtk/swidgets/sconsole.c:#define  __ALLOW_DEPRECATED_GDK__
         sgtk/swidgets/sdialog.c:#define  __ALLOW_DEPRECATED_GDK__
         sgtk/swindow-gtk.c:#define  __ALLOW_DEPRECATED_GDK__
