  • If a position is too small to display a label, Zillions will now display a dot. This can help you locate tiny positions.
  • GO-MOKU: NINUKI variants - Fixed a capturing problem.
  • CHECKERS: FRISIAN CHECKERS - Orthogonal captures weren't being allowed.
  • COINS: TURNING variants - Corrected sound.
  • Fixed display problems when the board was enlarged:
    • The background outside of the board wouldn't redraw properly, e.g. moving the moves list around slowly could leave screen garbage.
    • Bitmaps with an even-valued dimension of x pixels would be enlarged to 2x-1 pixels rather than 2x pixels, causing problems in games with pieces that were meant to entirely cover the background.
  • Fixed some bugs affecting outside games (affected no games in Zillions):
    • Puzzles with random players were not being correctly detected as puzzles by Zillions and so the repetition goal was being enforced as in a 2-player game.
    • Pieces recycled into the store could not be dropped unless they also appeared within board-setup using the "off" keyword.
    • If total-piece-count was used with players at the top level (not under an "and"/"or"/"not"), any specified players would be ignored.
    • Fixed incorrect syntax error that occurred when "not-attacked?" or "not-defended?" commands were used with two arguments.
    • Fixed bug in checkmate games where a king would be allowed to move into a square threatened by an enemy piece having the ability to capture without moving.
    • Fixed bug in checkmate games where detection of whether a king was in check was applied inconsistently for partial moves.
    • Fixed potential problems that might occur if "kill-positions" is used on a position in a zone.
  • Fixed bugs with "Highlight Movable" or "Highlight Attacks":
    • Highlighting was not being updated after a partial move.
    • Avoids unnecessary flickering of the highlighting while loading in a saved game.
    • Fixed the popup help for "Highlight Movable" and "Highlight Attacks" in the Board Options dialog.
  • Fixed problems with the Recent Games menu:
    • Fixed problems with the menu and the titlebar after an attempt to open a ZRF with a syntax error.
    • Allows user ZRFs ending in "Select.zrf" to appear in the menu.
  • Fixed bug where the wrong side could be reported as the winner when loading a saved game.
  • Fixed bug where "Move-types" in the statistics window was always reported as 0.
  • Fixed bug where change-sound wasn't always played in some situations, such as promotions.
  • The "Win/Loss in x" number displayed in the search bar is now more accurate for repetition goals.
  • Truncates items in popup menus for choosing moves if they are long (to be more compatible with older systems, which might refuse to display such menus.)
  • Miscellaneous improvements to the Language Reference
