- It is now main.c that loads the sgf file into a tree.
- If no playmode / testmode is supplied, look for a comment
  of the form  C[testmode=...] in the root node. If found,
  this sets the playmode / testmode.
- Other interface fns take the tree, rather than filename, as param.
- testmode is now a local variable, passed as param into play_test,
  rather than setting into global state via set_testmode / get_testmode
- Move the tests for acceptable sgf file (GM[1]FF[3/4]) into the
  sgf reader, rather than in the user of the tree.

  but against the 5/21 evaluation
- area ownership evaluation (using 5/0 algo), with wrapper functions :
  area_stone(int m,int n), area_space(int m,int n)
  area_color(int m,int n), area_tag(int m,int n)
  set_area_tag(int m,int n,int tag)
- the values are computed during make_moyo evaluation, use
  "gnugo -m" to see how area are evaluated.
- bugfix in play_test.c

- Wind assistance complemented by moyo assistance.
- Move dependent randomness replaced by pattern dependent randomness.
- Format of patterns.db changed to accomodate new features mentioned above.

- jump_out_helper() modified to use moyo heuristics
- new function delta_moyo() run quite fastly, using the cache as proposed.
  the result of this function go in global variables :
  moyo_test[WHITE],moyo_test[BLACK] and the difference from precedent
  moyo evaluation is in moyo_test[0]
  delta_moyo returns what is expected : the difference from point of view
  of "color" player, aka moyo_test[0]
  the same for moyo_eval[3] and terri_eval[3]
  so all the results are availables for later use. 
  (see sources for details)
- used #defines for the variables 5/21 and 5/10 (can be 4/10 too), see liberty.h


2.3.13 released May 20, 1999

- further revisions to ttsgf_read.c regarding file buffering
- tuning, new patterns, helpers, half eye patterns

2.3.12 released May 20, 1999

- tuning
- ttsgf_read.c: changed 

2.3.11 released May 19, 1999

- reading.c from 2.3.8 is restored
- MAX_FILE_BUFFER increased to 150000 in ttsgf_read.c
- tuning and a new joseki
- hide most of liberty.h from non-src/ code.
- src/ and patterns/ define BUILDING_GNUGO_ENGINE,
  and are therefore allowed to see all the internal
  symbols. Otherwise, code just sees a few functions,
  and sees 'const' versions of the variables.
- (liberty.h defines a macro PUBLIC_VARIABLE which expands
  to  extern  for engine source files, and extern const
  for others)
- *NOTE* : we get many warnings about const violations,
  where other modules write to these variables. In particular,
  ascii_showboard makes temporary changes to p[][].
  But it still compiles (with gcc at least). These interface 
  violations were always there. Now they are visible.
- Moved remove_string() and count_territory() from play_ascii
  into src/utils : these need to be part of the engine
  since they have intimate access to the state.
- Did a bit of gratuitous changes with play_test.c
  No functionality changes.
- lost get_*_a and put_*_a interface functions.
- make_dragons() is no longer predicated on movenum, but 
  on existence of worms.
- potential_moves[][] is now taken seriously : genmove()
  clears it at the start of the move cycle, rather than
  having sgf_move_made() clear it at some random time
  after genmove has returned.
- semeai criterion slightly changed: my dragon.vitality<0
  and your dragon.status==DEAD.

2.3.10 released May 18, 1999

- hane_backfill_helper deprecated
- semeai module now consults vitality field to initiate fighting
- test mode did not pass movenum to engine code: fixed.
  did away with the game_info entries for boardsize and move_number, 
  made the interface use the engine's global variables instead.
  Better solution is needed (see TODO)

2.3.9 released May 17, 1999

- play_solo.c: in load_sgf_file() we now use global movenum instead of mv
- play_solo.c: white stones were loading as black (fixed)
- new helpers, tuning, revisions to pattern database
- mkpat.c: maxwt now takes bonus into account
- reading.c: break_chain2 simplified

2.3.8 released May 17, 1999

- backfill.sgf added to regression/
- color added to moyo.c
- bugfix in moyo.c: captures were counted backwards
- BOUZY added to docs/
- bugfix in sente_hane_helper
- joseki patterns are now type 's'
- fix the board_size bug in test mode
- reimplement load_sgf_file() in terms of the sgf parser : gives us
  ability to read multiple AB[][]... for free
- move load_sgf_file and load_and_analyse_sgf_file from sgf/ into
  interface.  (Currently play_solo.c but that's temporary.)
  Justification is that these fns have more to do with the engine
  than with sgf files.
- put in the emacs variable blocks into some of the files
- remove some extern refs from .c files - according to David 
  this is a bad practise
- Remove a few remaining // comments, and disable // comments in 
   GNUGO_SOME_WARNINGS
- Reorganise the --help page, and add long options for most of the 
   short ones. The --help is modelled after gnu tar.
- Some files had #define _NO_PROTO to hide getopt() prototype, but 
   these files were not doing option parsing, so  assume this is redundant.
- interface game_info structure was used only in interface.c, so
   moved the structure defn out of a public header file
- The ttsgf_read.c code only offered to parse an sgf file which had 
   already been read into a buffer. Moved a code fragment which appeared 
   in two places to load the file then parse it into a readsgffile() 
   function.
- Prefixed all the symbols for long option names with OPT_, and mode 
   names with MODE_to avoid namespace clashes. (DECIDE_STRING was being 
   used as a mode and an option.)

2.3.7 released May 15, 1999

- Jerome's moyo mode (-m option)
- new patterns and helpers, including backfill patterns CD47 and CD48
- reading.c: trysafe in readlad2 has been removed
- reading.c: in savestone2 if stackp==0 we first try to capture
-  a surrounding string. This would lead to thrashing if we tried
-  it at deeper levels
- reading.c: bug fix in find_defense (Gunnar)
- reading.c: in break_chain2 we omit harder attacks if string has
-  3 liberties since this causes too many errors.
- reading.c: in basicnet3 we test a little more the attack really works

2.3.6 released May 15, 1999

- bug fixes in patterns/

2.3.5 released May 14, 1999

2.3.1 released May 11, 1999

- Joseki compiler and beginnings of a Joseki database
- some tuning
- Tweak sgf/Makefile.am to write generated sgf_properties to $(srcdir)/
    note : this generates a warning at automake, but I think it is benign.
- remove the GCC_OPTS from the Makefile.am's, and replace with either
    @GNUGO_SOME_WARNINGS@ or @GNUGO_ALL_WARNINGS@.
    This means we can centralise the choice of which warnings we enable,
    rather than having to duplicate the list of warnings in each component.
- Add code to configure.in to generate the above.  ALL_WARNINGS switches off use
    of // comments  (via -Wp,-lang-c89 which runs preprocesser in ansi mode).
    SOME_WARNINGS will do the same once all components have been cleaned up.
    SOME_WARNINGS is intended for code over which we don't have full control (eg gmp.c)
    and so we have to be more liberal in the diagnostics.
- Removed from the build some of the stuff in utils/ which we do not (currently) use.
- fixed clear_board() bug that caused segfaults
- fixed game parameter handling in main() to use interface API
- updated other interfaces to partially use interface API (no more
   passing from main!)
- removed // comments where they were not needed
   They stil are in the tt* code, that needs to be revisited!!

- wrote sgfgen, a program to translate SGF definitions into a header file
- added Tommy Thorn's code for SGF parsing and implemented tree parsing
- updated ASCII interface to rely on interface routines- it works!
- updated interfaces to handle new 'pass' based on int returned from genmove
- made genmove return boardsize, boardsize coordinates for pass 
- added interface specification and code-- we now have engine independence!
- moved all SGF code into sgf directory

- added ascii_showboard() before the counting starts, useful after 'play 999'
- added --mode option to main.c
- changed how different play modes are started: now using switch()
- removed -g option: use --mode instead
- changed MAX_BOARD to 25 in liberty.h: try some bigger games!
- changed sgf 'pass' to [tt] if boardsize>19, else [] (by SGF standard)
