This is a server-only release, so you do not have to download a new client. It includes fixes to the server to properly delete games, fixes for a variable namespace issue on the server, and fixes for an issue on the server that permitted users to login more than once.
This release includes a reworked communication
protocol, improved Unicode support. User history,
the option to be notified when new players login
to the game, and individual player records were
added. The game now keeps track of your record
against individual players. A fix was made for
RESOURCE_PREFIX in __installed__.py.
The server now uses (and requires) ZODB as a backend for storing users, statistics, and game information. This should vastly improve the integrity and portability of the data. The server version was added to the server information. Logging was improved. HTTP proxy support was added. Adding additional hosts to the list when registering is supported. Locale handling was improved. pyscrabble.py was renamed to pyscrabble-main.py to avoid naming conflicts. Unicode support was improved. New German words and a Serbian translation were added.
