16 2 1998-12-01 13:40:51 You may have noticed that new additions to the database are now announced with a green-headed news item, and some updates are announced with a yellow-headed news item.<br> I can't decide if I like this or not. It seems a little redundant considering the <b>Recent additions</b> and <b>Recent updates</b> lists are right here on the same page, but I thought I'd give it a try. The update announcements allow you to see what has changed, anyway.<br> If you've got an opinion about this, or anything else, for that matter, <a href="">let me know</a>. Hundreds of you have registered for Game Tome accounts, but only 4 (that's right. Four.) of you have given me any feedback. I can make the Game Tome better if you tell me what you want. Do you like the changes? default

This version is mainly bugfixes - if you are running 0.95.0, you really should upgrade to 0.95.1. If you are running a 0.94.3 (last version to have X11 support in the server), the upgrade could be more in doubt. However, some major improvements in reliability have been made since 0.95.0, so if you were using that as a basis not to upgrade, it may no longer be quite as good a measurement. CrossFire 0.95.1 updated
