    * Better unit movement:

        * Removed hidden forbidden area, replaced with a new 'immobile units' array (same purpose (avoid unit clashing), done differently)
        * Units can now move backwards to get around blockages (before they had to move forward or stall)
        * Warriors no longer consider enemy walls and towers blockages when plotting their route to a war flag / defence area.
        * Warriors now pathfind using an A* algorithm. This means that attacks are more effecient (they surround enemies to kill them faster for example)

    * Better flag/area functionality:

        * Checkboard and half-checkboard brush are now tilable (they space out on a grid rather than clump together)
        * Clearing areas have been adjusted to pull free healthy units, rather than waiting for one to walk into a clearing area
        * Clearing flags no longer call units that can't swim, if what they have to clear is over water
        * Forbidden areas are now respected over clearing areas/flags

    * Many improvments to Nicowar's stability and performance (fewer crashes, and now uses ground attack explorers if the game goes on that long)
    * Script text is now added to the history box ('h') so people who play the tutorial can read the last messages if they forget
    * Now more more than 4/3 units per resource needed for a building construction/upgrade are allocated to a building
    * Explorer attacks are now 2/5 the power of what they once were
    * Tutorial text updated to reflect features in recent version.
    * Building worker count, and building future working count (the amount assigned the moment a construction is complete) is now saved in the game file and restored when loaded

Overall Improvements

    * Moved fertiliy from on the fly, to being calculated with the map when saving it (less bugs, faster performance). Older maps will compute fertility before being playable
    * Fixed several memory leaks
    * syncRand system changed to use the well known Mersenne Twister algorithm through Boost Random
    * Removed the verbose messages from Map that outputted things like "pathfind local resource failed" in the console
    * Map editor now asks you if you want to save the map before quitting
    * Improved keyboard shortcut system (can now assign shortcuts with CTRL, ALT, SHIFT, and meta (Mac OSX Command key for example), as well as pressed/unpressed events)
    * Flag default worker settings are now editable in the Unit Settings tab

Network Improvements

    * Made net connections multi-threaded
    * General code improvements for maintainability
    * New Administrative YOG commands (for muting and unmuting players who spam the channel, or resetting a player password)
    * Ghost buildings (previous release feature) now display in your teams color
    * Improved latency computation on server (games with lag should run a bit smoother now)
    * Games will now be sent over network to joining players when the computed sha1 does not match (no longer uses game checksum). More reliable now
    * VOIP changes:

        * Experimental Win32 VOIP
        * You can now adjust the sound of someone talking through the Settings panel on the main menu or in game

Graphical Improvements

    * Minimum (default) resolution now 800x600
    * The cursor now uses your team colour, rather than the default pink
    * A new talk indicator (for Linux players) shows who is talking on VOIP
    * Flag/Area in game button now differs from the building button.

Translation Improvements

    * The tutorial campaign text is now in the translation files (the ingame text isn't yet though)
    * Updated Italian and Russian translations

Miscellaneous Improvements

    * scons script now checks for a compiler, to prevent problems with it tries to compile with nothing
    * Experimental, but semi stable, Mac OS X .app bundle and dmg file creation in scons. Needs more people to test
    * Added spec files for making Fedora packages
    * The adition of two new command line options:

        * -test-games  : Runs the game automatically, with different maps, different players, for 1 hour or until game is won, using GUI. Good for testing features or AI's
        * -test-games-nox  : Same as -test-games, but without a GUI, so many times faster, but harder to knnow if features are working as they should. Good for finding bugs in the engine

--------------------------------
0.9.2 (released 20080223)
Gameplay Improvements

    * Nicowar has been majorly improved, to cope better on smaller maps, and has now got a Warrush style that it can randomly select to pursue (so you cant run the same map and expect the same result each time).
    * Changed default SGSL wait behavior for buildings: wait for condition for specified level and higher level. Added keyword "only" to restrict to specified level. This should remove tutorial dead-locking because of too efficient players.
    * Several parts of the game have been optimized, to make it less CPU exhaustive.

Overall improvements

    * The ability to open saved games in the map editor has been revived.
    * Changes to Scons script so it compiles better on a range of different systems (including Mac OSX)
    * Quick Kill keys have been added for MacOSX (CMD+Q) and Windows (ALT+F4). These will quit the game completely, from wherever you are, rather than using the menus to quit.
    * The Unit Settings screen has been slightly improved so its easier to understand.

Network improvements

    * Many changes to YOG and LAN network gaming to improve stability, and performance.
    * Changes to YOG IRC so it uses multi-threading techniques (removes GUI delays when logging into YOG)
    * YOG Game information box (the top right box in YOG when you click on a game) has been reenabled after several releases of it not being there.
    * The ability to restart a network game using a saved game is also working again (just start it up with the saved game map, assign the players back to their team colors, and start).
    * Buildings now have a ghost building placed before being usable (it wont be noticeable in local games, but in online games, with a little bit of lag, it provides confirmation of placement until your request is processed).
    * YOG now displays to the player when they join a network game, how much of a map they have downloaded if they have to do so).

Graphical enhancement

    * A particle engine has been added allowing neat little smoke effects for damaged buildings and turret fire.

Miscellaneous improvements

    * Fixed a bug where the windows installer would remove more than it should when uninstalling. #21011
    * Fixed the age old bug where starving globs wouldn't go to inns. #17040
    * Fixed the bug where globules spinning on the spot would leave hidden forbidden areas when they died.
    * Many other bugs on and off the bug tracker have been fixed, #22137, #21055, #21880, #21306

--------------------------------
0.9.1 (released 20070901)
Important Changes

    * Map headers have been replaced and designed for better maintainability.
    * YOG has been completely redesigned, from the ground up, for improved stability and easier maintainability.
    * All new subsequent versions of Globulation 2 will be released under GPL version 3
    * Scons has completely replaced the old configure and make tools for compiling. The new script is more flexible and easier for the developers to maintain (for Linux, Mac, and Windows).

Overall improvements

    * Changes to GameGUI have been made, so it is more maintainable for developers.
    * Various other changes to the code have been made to increase maintainability.
    * A new keyboard shortcuts system has been implemented so people can configure their own controls.
    * The tutorial has been split into a 4 part campaign, allowing a better flow for new players and demonstrating the campaign power.
    * All overlays now paint with OpenGL for much smoother results.

Gameplay improvements

    * A new fertility overlay has been added, which shows where resource are the most likely to grow.
    * Debug output has been removed (so less is printed in a console window and no log files are made in ~/.glob2/ (now longer causes problems when it comes to HDD being filled up with them)). This also improves the speed of the game.

Miscellaneous improvements

    * The volume bars in the Settings screen are now tapered to indicate which way is softer and which is louder.
    * Fixed several bug with scroll wheels (mainly speed and preventing accidents on specially designed touch pads (like ones on Laptops)).
    * Default compilation build with -g, for debugging output when run with GDB. This should help fix problems with crash reports in the future (the more information, the better).
    * Mercurial has been setup and is now used as the revision control system for Globulation 2's code.
    * Translations have been reviewed, and a script made to sort the labels/string alphabetically and keep them up to date in all (even if the strings for them aren't there, the labels will be). They are also now marked as incomplete so players who can update the translation are informed and able to help.
    * Brazilian and French translations have been updated.
    * AUTHORS file is now sorted alphabetically.
    * Many bugs (major and minor) have been fixed.
