20151010: 2.6

  The Long Awaited release.

  * Improved translations:
    - French: missions and engine at 100%
    - Brazilian: missions at 100%, engine at 65%
    - Chinese: engine at 39%
  * Engine:
    - Ask loudly before pushing anything to the remote servers
      This fixes http://bugs.debian.org/772026
    - Switch embeeded scala compiler to version 2.11.4
  * Worlds:

      two loops. The external loop is always a do/while ("until
      found").  The inner loop in the first one is a simpler for loop
      while the second exercise request the inner loop to also be a
      do/while (because of the corridors of differing lenghts)
    - InterleavedHanoi,SplitHanoi[123]; LinearHanoi,LinearTwinHanoi;
      TricolorHanoi[123]; CyclicHanoi; IterativeHanoi: New exercises 
      to work on the decomposition of recursive problems.

    - New package in welcome lesson for summative exercises
  * Buggle Editor:
    - New commands: add/del line or column.

20141031: Release 2.5

  The Halloween Release.
  
  * Improved translations:
    - French: mission and engine back at 100%
    - Brazilian: missions at 58%
  * Engine:
    - #292: Check the user's input before submitting a feedback

    - Greatly improve the coverage of our unit tests.
  * Worlds:
    - #286: Turtle, Buggle: document where (0,0) is
    - #220: Buggle: Improve doc of isOverBaggle(), isCarryingBaggle()
  * Pedagogical content:
    - #323: turtleart.Kerr40: new exercise

20141009: Release 2.4.11

  Git and TurtleWorld's equality should both be working now :)

  * Improved translations:
    - Brazilian Portuguese: Missions at 54% despite content changes
  * Engine:
    - #224: If the execution is interrupted, the exercise is failed
    - #380: Disable creative mode when switching the exercise
    - Lessons: Prevent users from accessing broken lessons and add tests
      to detect them.
    - GitSpy: Fix a bug which overwrote the current exercise's files
      for the current programming language by the current exercise's files
      for the last result's programming language
    - Git: Refactor Git related code to fix progression loss bugs
  * Worlds:
    - Turtle: equal() was not detecting when lines are overlapping
      with no common extremities. We now detect when one line is
      strictly included within another one, but not when they are
      intermixed (yet). Fix #381.
  * Pedagogical content:
    - #378, #393: French typo
    - #383: Fix the name of the Scala entity
    - #387: Fix a broken link when run from the jar
    - #388: The Pancake #0 is actually on top (fix mission text)

20140930: Release 2.4.10

  * Engine:
    - Add several tests to check ExerciseTemplated's behavior.
    - #262: sensible error message when putting code out of any method
      in Scala
    - Add a test suite to gather together all tests.
    - #359: Add world-specific info to debug and feedback.
      SortingWorld uses that to tell which random instance was used.
  * Pedagogical content:
    - #372: scala code for Koch and Crab exercises were inverted.
    - #373: Fix entity name for the dutch flag

20140929: Release 2.4.9

  Recursion lesson is usable again, sorry for the inconvenience.
  (we really need more tests, grmbl)

  * Engine:
    - Lesson constructor waits for all init threads' completion
  * Worlds:
    - Turtle: equal() was too permissive after recent work on merging
      lines that were too picky. Now take the world name into account
      in equality, so that we can switch from an empty world to 
      another empty world in the UI.
  * Pedagogical content:
    - recursion: remove the largest fractals that were too heavy
    - #366: recursion.spiralUse: add another nice picture

20140928: Release 2.4.8

  * Engine:
    - Use appropriately the executionError field instead of
      compilationError to store entities' run time errors.
  * Worlds:
    - ConsWorld: new subclass of BatWorld dedicated to recursive lists.
  * Pedagogical content:
    - recursion.cons: new lesson on recursive lists (17 challenges)
    - #349, #355 : French typo
    - #356: write 'one', not '1' (was too similar to 'l') (fix #356)
    - #365: SelectionSort: don't sort the last cell, it's already done

20140920: Release 2.4.7

  Python is usable again, sorry for the inconvenience.

  * Engine: 
    - Don't even compare the worlds when there was a compilation error
      Prevents python code from failing after reaching the solution.
  * Worlds:
    - Turtle: Merge lines that are in line with each other before
      comparing equality. You can now walk half of a segment, the half
      will be removed. You can walk to your destination in large
      amount of very small lines that are all depicting a long line,
      parts will be merged together. I hope that now, that damn
      world equality detection will not return false negative anymore!
      This fixes #338 and #339 (which are not exact duplicates).
    - Turtle: Show the superflous and missing shapes when the amount
      of shapes does not match.
    - #344 Turtle: Display the coordinates of the mouse.
      That helps reading the differences between worlds, if any.
    - #309 Bat: Edit the python template in order to test correctly
      the exercise's winning conditions instead of passing it.
  * Pedagogical content:
    - #341: French typo
    - TurtleArt: rename challenges from Bill Kerr to credit the author.
      http://billkerr2.blogspot.fr/2009/08/40-maths-shapes-challenges.html

20140917: Release 2.4.6

  * Worlds:
    - #329: Buggle: allow exercise to specify that Buggle's direction
      is irrelevant to world equality tests. Use it for all maze exos.
  * Pedagogical content:
    - #332, #333: French typo
    - #330: Lander.*: Make Segment usable in every exercise, even if
      they are not absolutely mandatory to solve the problem.
    - #320: indexOfValue: align the template onto the mission text
    - #334: Lander1: we are only supposed to write a method body in
      python while that's a random code chunk in other languages.
      Adapt the mission text to that fact.
    - #335: Array123: Add some tests so that testing if 3 is in the
      array is not enough to solve the problem.
    - #331: New turtle art figure, original by a student.
    - PictureMono: more space between patterns so that V are visible

20140916: Release 2.4.5

  * Improved translations:
    - Brazilian Portuguese: Missions at 51% despite content changes
    - French: Missions translation at 100% (Engine's lagging behide)
  * Engine:
    - #294: Import package Color in every exercise, so that students
      may use it even if they don't have to in a given exercise.
    - #327: Update our embeeded java compiler to OpenJDK7
  * Worlds:
    - #291: TurtleWorld: align equals() and diffTo() on what's equal.
      That is, equals() now ignore the turtle color while diffTo() now
      reports differences in turtle position.
    - #298: TurtleWorld: Drop duplicate shapes before comparing, so
      that it still matches if the only difference is that you don't 
      duplicate the same segments than the correction.
    - #236: Make sure that Left() and Right() are detected as errors
      even in Scala that gives a meaning to these names.
    - #272: Bat: Clone the arrays passed as parameter to the user code
      to ensure that the user don't mess with our precious data.
  * Pedagogical content:
    - #299, #307: French typo
    - #303: No need to draw the same thing twice
    - turtleart.Flower2: New picture, proposed by a student last year.
    - #242: Moria: Forces the use of while loops by making the word
      too uneven for forloops, and by adding more buggles.
    - #247: ScalaWallFindFollowMazeEntity was in wrong package, breaking demo.
    - #305: ShortestPathMaze: fix mission to match world's expectations
    - #273: FlowerPot: don't add a buggle manually, the map contains one

20140912: Release 2.4.4

  * Engine: 
    - #257: used to write the bad information when passing an exercise
      placed on the top of a sub-menu, resulting in the DONE mark not
      being retrieved when loading the session afterward.
  * Worlds:
    - #280: Buggles: Don't display the error dialog more than once when
      dropping the baggle that you don't have.
  * Pedagogical content:
    - #274: BDR: citation of Java instead of [!theLang] in mission
    - #289: indexOfMaxValue: add a table with all negative numbers to
      catch people initializing maxValue = 0
    - #248: Misleading mission text in French
    - #285: TurtleArt with 20 sides should not be called Polygon15

20140911: Release 2.4.3

  * User Interface:
    - Add the public branch name to the feedbacks to ease reproducing 
      the issues.
  * Engine:
    - #257: loading sessions from git was sometimes loosing DONE marks
    - #267: record a git event when the student reads a tip
    - #265: Provide now the PLM's version number when interacting with the server
  * Pedagogical content: further fixing students' issues
    - #237, #252: typo in French
    - #246, #259: Lessons about mazes': make the templating mechanism explicit
    - #255: IndexOfValue: world and function renamed to match with the instructions
    - #251: Fizz Buzz: correct the solution to match the instructions

20140909: Release 2.4.2

  * Engine:
    - Reduce the load to the github servers by not pushing more often
      than once every 30mn (or when the client quits). The PLM-data
      repository was disabled by github robots due to the excessive
      load. We don't want it to happen again...
  * Improved translations:
    - Brazilian Portuguese: Missions at 45%
  * Pedagogical content: fixing the issues opened by our students.
    - #221: fix templating to now show crude details to youngsters
    - #218, #225, #227: typos in French
    - #226: Course: nice error message when running more than asked
    - #228: CourseForest: nice error message when running more than asked
    - #230: Course*: forbid backward() too. forward() must be called.
    - #232, #233: Methods: show the code calling goAndGet() in languages
            allowing methods to be embeeded within methods (scala/python)
            Should be more robust to students misuses now.

20140905: Release 2.4.1

  Soon in production, last chance to iron out the bugs found on time.

  * User Interface:
    - Students can explain their problem in a phrase when requesting
      for help (contributing to #208, but the teacher cannot answer yet)
  * Engine:
    - Save the error message also when it compiles but diverges (fix #213)

20140901: Release 2.4

  Let's get ready for the Big Show of this year.
  
  * Improved translations:
    - Brazilian Portuguese: Missions at 39% despite content changes
    - French: Engine and Missions translation back to 100%
  * User Interface:
    - Switch from the now unmaintained jsyntaxpane to RSyntaxpaneArea 
      (fix #191).
    - Switching users now works without restarting anything (fix #189)
    - Kill the cloud session export feature: git superseeds that.
    - Allow the students to provide imediate feedback on the exercises
      they just passed.
    - Restore the feature where the students can ask for the help of
      their teacher, once they have registered their identity to the
      PLM-server. Also, the PLM-server now gives a much better
      interface for the teacher.
  * Pedagogical content:
    - welcome: move the BDR after the races so that students know
      about variables when attempting them (fix #106).
  * Internal organization:
    - Move the logic related to a given programming language to a
      central class. This should make it easier to add new languages.

20140821: Release 2.4-beta1

  Close to the release, but not there yet.
  
  * Improved translations:
    - Brazilian Portuguese: Now at 35% [Fred Maranhao]
  * User Interface:
    - Make it possible to copy/paste the secret session ID from the
      about dialog, so that the students can manually pass it to their 
      teachers. Not as convenient as it ought to be, but it works.
    - Display a big fat warning when switching to C: that's still
      experimental, and not everything works for now. They're warned.
  * Pedagogical content:
    - welcome.array.maxvalue.Extrema: find min and max values
      [Valentin Giannini]
    - welcome.array.golomb.Golomb: compute the Nth of the surprising
      Golomb sequence [Valentin Giannini]
    - welcome.array.island.Island: small game with arrays of integers

  * New and improved translations:
    - Brazilian Portuguese: 25% of all missions [Fred Maranhao]
    - Italian: Full engine + Welcome lesson [Vinnie Costante]
  * User Interface:
    - user data are now saved in a git, and automatically synchronized
      on github. [Cédric Huguenin, Mathieu Morainville]

    - Add a little menu to switch human language (fix #110)
    - The error message now have the right number also on Windows.
      #42 was not fixed on this platform yet. [Cédric Huguenin]
    - Rewamp the feedback reporting dialog box
    - Unclutters the UI: changing the buggle color is useless
  * Pedagogical content:
    - lander.*: new lesson on lunar landing [Paul Brauner]
      Only working in Java for now, somehow experimental.
    - welcome.bat.bool2.fizzBuzz: new (classical Fizz Buzz word game)
    - Various proofreadings on mission texts (FR&EN)

  * recursion.spiralUse: rewrite to leverage the creative mode,
    so that students don't spend too much time seeking for the reward.
  * recursion.tree: make the color changing robust to negative steps
  * recursion.tree: forbid teleporting 
    This was used by some students to make the method idempotent.
  * recursion.sierpinski: rewrite to simplify the code to be written
  * recursion.hanoi: Simplify by explicitely passing the index of the
    unused peg to the recursive function.
  * TurtleWorld: synchronize to avoid a concurent modification when a
    shape is added while we are computing the toString() of the world

    the index
  * TurtleArt: force a newline every 5 exercises as it does not work
    well with Java7 otherwise.
  * TurtleArt.Flower: new exercise (provided by a student :)
  * GnomeSort: fix a bug in the correction, where we stay at i=0 when

  * TurtleWorld.equals&diffTo: synchronized on shapes to avoid issues
    when the stop is pressed, for example
  * TurtleWorld: order the points in each segment so that the line
    (ab, cd) is detected as equal to (cd, ab)

      the debugging of user's code
  * As usual, fix a bunch of typos in the French translation

20130916: Release 2.2.5: SortingWorld needs *more* polishing.

  * Align equals() and diffTo() of sortedWorld to avoid false negatives
  * Internationalize and translate the error messages of SortedWorld
  * sort.Bubble3: there is no 'break' in scala
  * Color the statusbar in red when a world is running so that people
    notice that there is more than one world.
  * SortingWorld: give large worlds a reduced delay so that people
    don't wait for the perf world too much even if they don't click

20130916: Release 2.2.4: SortingWorld also needs polishing.

  * Disable the "help me" button if the appengine is disabled
  * Document the existing colors in Buggle&Turtle worlds

  * Fix an error in the pseudocode of CombSort
  * Fix a bunch of typos in the French translations.
  * sorting world: represent values as letters so that they don't get
    mixed with indexes. 

20130912: Release 2.2.3: Let's start adding new bu^Wfeatures again.

  * Let every interactive control issue the source code doing the same
    thing when they are clicked, so that the students can copy/paste.
    Thanks to Laurent Guittet for suggesting this change, I love it.
  * Buggle: Translate the direction names, too
  * TurtleWorld: add a new clear() primitive that clears the sheet
  * New feature: import/export session to the cloud.
    You don't have to struggle with a bunch of zip files anymore.
  * Rewamp the ExerciseFailedDialog to be more user friendly. Its
    title is less demotival, it hints about how to fix the issue, and
    the textual diff (that can be big and ugly) is hidden by default.
  
  * BuggleWorld: dropping a baggle was possible even if you had none
  * welcome.BlueTicket: Fix typo in French
  * BatEntity: more informative error message when an exception is raised
  * FeedbackDialog: should not be modal to enable copy/paste
  * maze.island: move the initial positions to make cheating harder
  * maze.shortestpath: also translate the helper methods in scala and
    python
  * maze.shortestpath: put the distance on every cell, not just until
    we found the buggle. Otherwise, the student must do exactly the
    same traversal, which is not part of the spec, making it harder.
  * Search windows directories first as the user.home property cannot
    be trusted here at Telecom Nancy.
  * welcome.basic.meth: reword the mission to make clear that the
    code will get called automatically.
  * Don't remove runner threads too early from their set so that
    "Stop" still find them to stop them (fix #108)

  * welcome.traversal.*: fix the java and scala templating
  * welcome.variable: speak about != that is handy here
  
20130910: Release 2.2.2: the 2 cts release.

  * welcome.LoopCourse: specify that the colors get updated automatically
  * welcome.NearHundred: fix french translation (was plainly wrong)
  * welcome.SlugHunting: align templating and mission: isFacingTrail must be copied
  * welcome.Variables: scala mandates an initial value (fix #109)
    plus various small improvements
  * Unify all Dave messages (marking functions that are forbidden in a
    given exercise -- like setPos in maze exercises), to ensure that
    they are properly translated despite the fact that gettext don't
    dig into scala and python files for string to translate.
  * Specify a working font for plain text to help the poor Mac users
  * welcome.RunHalf: fix the scala templating
  * welcome.FlowerPot: fix the french translation (growFlowers with a s)
  * FeedbackDialog: reset the text on each invocation
  * welcome.MethodsArgs: Fix a faulty copy/paste in scala prototypes

20130908: Release 2.2.1: C'mon, dudes. Break that one if you dare.

  * Allow a creative mode, perfectly adapted to open LOGO exercises.
    The world is never reset nor compared to the "expected" output.
    
  * Fix the dist build to not take all files copied by eclipse (fix #101)
  * welcome.PictureMono*: fix the templating of run() (fix #102)
  * welcome.Instructions: Fix a translation error (fix #103)
  * welcome.slugTracking: Mention also in scala and python how to test
    whether the ground color is green (fix #104)
  * Bat templating didn't even compile in Java and Scala, oops (fix #105)
  * turmite.hello: fix mission text: left=2; right=8
  * welcome.Poucet: specify how intersection cells must be counted
  * welcome.LoopStairs: say that there is no need to manually fiddle
    with the colors. 

20130830: Release 2.2. The funny times are over

  * Rebrand JLM into PLM (Programmer's Learning Machine)
  * Turtles: Allow for hints on segment sizes
  * Turtle.circle(): New primitive to draw circles directly.
  * New lesson turtleart on the classical Logo geometric figures
  * Upgrade our twitter4j dependency to use the new twitter API 1.1
    Twitter dropped support for the 1.0 API a while ago.
  * Drop the identi.ca spy. It does not work since the upstream move
    from status.net to pump.io, and I fail fixing it.
  * Drop our prototypal jabber chat dialog. It was not activated
    because it's not adapted: student only use it to try to cheat and
    get easy answers. A forum would be better. Students are
    authenticated, and the messages moderated (France IOI does that)
  * Build a plm-light jarfile, without scala and python dependencies.
    These langs remain usable if the deps are independently installed.
  * Specify a sain font as default to help Mac users (fix #100)

  * Port all exercises to scala.
  * Change turnLeft()/turnRight() to left()/right() in buggles & turtles
  * Translate all builtins of buggles, turtles and sorts to French:
    It is now possible to write avance() instead of forward()
  * Review all translations for uniformity and to iron out some typos
  * Test the compilation process in our JUnit tests, for Java and Scala.
  * Mark many more strings for translation in the engine.
  * Allow [!java]...[/!] constructs in mission texts to adapt to progLang
  * In debug mode, all adaptations of all progLangs are displayed, with
    a color code for each. This was mandatory with a third main progLang
  * Partially document the black magic fueling ExerciseTemplatingEntity 
    Erk, this class is based on ... inventive hacks ;)
  * Property jlm.display.fontsize sets the size of the mission texts
    (default: 10px; must be valid in a CSS)
  * MissionEditorApp: little application to edit the mission texts with
    realtime rendering after applying our pseudo-markdown directives
  * lessons/welcome/methods/picture/PictureMono*: new exercises on drawing, 
    but without the color so that it can come early in the learning
    process, when we don't have methods parameters yet
  * lessons/welcome/methods/flowerpot/*: two new exercises training on
    methods (and decomposition)
  * New lib/jsyntaxpane.jar, from debian package fixing some upstream bugs
    - Contextual menu now works, as well as Ctrl-Z/Ctrl-Y, etc

20130804:
  * RELEASE 2.0, the revolutionary night.
  * Remove the array world. It was not helping very much when compared
    to the bat world.
  * Use '' to get ' in translated strings to please MessageFormat.
  * Pythonize the documentation of all universes
  * add a button to lessonChooser to load lessons from disk
  * Disable the step-by-step mode when stopping or swichting
    the lesson or the exercise (fix #1)
  * Editor: kill buggles that are in outer space after world resizing.
  * Disable JavaScript, it's really not ready for the big night.
  * Update our version of jsyntaxpane to get a fully working jar file.

20130730:
  * Pythonize new exercises
  * Retranslate everything back to 100% in French
  * Various cosmetics, small refactoring and little bug fixes
  * Lesson navigator: Display which exercise are passed in which language
  * Entity.isSelected() returns whether /this/ is selected in the UI
  * Change Buggle.pickUpBaggle() to pickupBaggle() for consistency
  * ExerciseTemplated: Trim leading spaces of non-python templates
  * Fix BuggleView for non-square worlds (Fix: #83)
  * Implement a graphical lesson chooser (Fix: #19)
  * Rewrite and integrate all of the baseball exercises
  * Give the baseball universe an historical view, as for sorting one
  * PancakeView: Reimplement from scratch; can now be played with mouse
  * Split hanoi towers and the turmites out in their own lessons
  * Remove the meta lesson. It was not done, seemed difficult to
    finish, and complicated the code of the universes. (Fix: #2)

20130720:
  * Integrate the pancake exercises into the sorting lesson
  * New pancake exercise about implementing Gates' algorithm
  * 1 more exercise about the while loop: Moria
  * 2 more exercises about variables: Big Buggles's Race (1&2)
  * 3 more exercises about the for loop: Stairs, Course and CourseForest
  * 1 more exercise about the do/while loop: Poucet
  * Better integrate the slug hunting exercises; add new one (on parameters)

20130710: 
  * Fix the temporal view of the sorting world (plus various cleanups)
  * Allow to provide feedback easily. One click to open the dialog
    window, type your text, validate, and it's automatically saved
    with an http POST request.
  * Properly select the current exercise in the lesson navigator
  * Save the currently used programming language in the property file
  * Current exercise gets saved in zip files and reselected when loading
  * Speeds initialization by directly building everything in the right
    locale instead of building it with no locale, and then updating it
  * Progress spys (twitter/identica) get controled through properties
  * Default values of properties get saved to local file to ease their
    discover and tuning by users

20130705:
  * RELEASE 1.99
  * Pythonize all lessons: maze, recursion, sort and bat/string
  * Fix: demo mode in python was without delay
  * print() in python was not playing well with graphical console
  * Update French translation of missions: back to 100%

20130621:
  * Improve the BuggleWorld I/O and the BuggleWorldEditor:
    - better detection and error messages of invalid map files
    - every world's characteristic can be edited in the editor
    - buggles are read from/saved into world files
  * Update all existing worlds on disk to this format
  * Speedup the lesson loading with a cache of answer worlds:
    - If a relevant .map file exists, don't execute the answer entity
    - If not, save the .map file after execution for the next time

20130616:
  * RELEASE 1.98
  * Squeeze a bit our sources so that we can package it for Debian
  * Add a logo to the distribution (img/logo.png)
  * List the exact license of every image used in COPYING, and replace
    the ones for which we lost the license on the way. JLM is now
    perfectly clean wrt the licensing legal consideration.
  * BatEntities now work within the unit tests too (fix #67)
  * Integrate the bat exercise using integer arrays into the welcome
    lesson (fix #21)
  * Welcome lesson ported to python, both code and missions (fix: #89)

20130531:
  * Try harder to find a path where we can save our data

20130530:
  * Make sure that jarfiles compiled with Java 6 also work with Java 7

20130529a:
  * Really kill jung in the source code too so that distributed jar
    files actually work -- sorry.

20130529:
  * Reintroduce the student progression listeners. It was turned off
    for the debugging process, but that shouldnt be part of a released
    version.

20130528:
  * New lesson navigator based on JTree (fix #71)
  * Some better looking icons, with known licenses
  * Basic testing infrastructure (fix #8)
    It ensures that python entities manage to solve the Java worlds. 
    This could be extended in many way, including:
     - The java entity is not compiled, so there is no compilation test
     - Bat exercises are too specific to be tested this way.
    But at least, we have a testing infrastructure!
  * Exception raised in python code (including syntax error) are now
    correcly handled (fix #66 and #78)
  * Basic i18n infrastructure allowing to translate the user interface (fix #76)
  * Kill the ability to have more than one view per world (fix #35)
  * Save the session before switching exo/lesson to not loose student's edits (fix #45)

20130517:
  * Package baseball exercises in their own directories
  * Add a control panel for the Pancake Worlds ( raw & burned )

20130516:
  * Add an icon depicting the programming language in the status bar
  * Various polishing of the exercises in Python
  * Fix issue #64: Buggle interactive controls are now properly
    initialized
  * Package maze, welcome, lightbot, sort and bat.string1 and recursion exercises in their own directories
  * Refresh the french translation
  * Add a control panel for the Sorting World
  * Start porting bat exercises to python
  * Port hanoiWorld to python

20130515:
  * Huge python cleanup:
    - various cleanups, code factorization and bug fixes
    - Create or improve the bindings of Turtle, Sorting and Buggle
      worlds
    - Port many exercises to python, testing that the bindings are
      sufficients, and [partially] rewriting the mission text to that
      extend. The templates are not sufficient yet for absolutely all
      exercises, but many of them are. 
    - Fix line number computation in error messages coming from python
    - If python is the default language, use the python entity to
      compute the answer. Note that it still fails for some exercises.
    - Add back the jruby jar file, as jython needs it to access POSIX
  * Merge both views of sorting worlds, toward code simplification
  * Rewrite most sorting exercises mission texts after recent splitup
    of our mega exercise into several ones with one entity only each
  * Refresh the french translation
  * Simplify Random Mouse exercise, fix the demo of Pledge algorithm
  * Add a combobox to switch to next exercise in "success" dialog
  * Add an interactive way to change the buggle color and brush color
  * Baseball exercise of SMN can now be played with more than 2
    players per base

20130416:
  * Kill several seamingly good ideas that complicated the code base:
    - aliased source files: student must keep them synchronized
      manually now. We may want to reintroduce this at some point?
    - Java code that cannot be compiled. This would have been useful
      only for user-provided text files, but we don't use it now.
    - uneditable source files. The student will see all files passed
      to the compiler, now. This was never used in production
    - inconditional static rewriting patterns to apply to the source
      code. People should change the code in their source directly :)
    - lessons cannot be sequential anymore. Forbidding pupils to
      attempt the exercise in the order they want is not in the JLM
      way of style anyway.
    - exercises cannot have more than one kind of exercise. This was
      introduced to have all sorting exercises at once, but this was
      split in several exercises because the SortingView was gone amok.
  * Simplify a bit the way external lesson files are loaded
  * Remove a bunch of unused dependencies on external jars.
    The distribution jar is now only half as big only (still 20M).
  * Request a confirmation from the user (through a dialog) before
    reverting the exercise, that was a mean trap...

20130328:
  * Merge all code (and wiki) from last year's students
  * Accept a pull request from J-Bastian, with a new lesson (SMN) and a
    bunch of bug fixes.
  * Various little bug fixes.

20120319:
  * Minor update on build process

20120318:
  * Allow jlm://<lesson>/<exo> links in mission texts

20120116:
  * Add an ant target to generate a source tgz (for Debian packaging)

20120110:
  * Do not even try to compile the Java sources if we were asked to
    used another language, such as Python.
    (Fixes #48: Python source code not used if some java code provided)

20111201:
  * Port some more welcome exercises to Python. 
    The translations should be updated to appear again.
  * Port all sorting exercises to Python

20111013:
  * Fix a bug in python that were due to an extra space added in front
    of the body. Damn python indentation freaks.
  * Add a debug mode to JLM, to see more infos on problem
  * Add a trap spitting a lot of info when issue #42 (line numbers are
    shifted) occures. I need more info to understand where it comes
    from.
  * Fix the array exercises (there were bugged and not properly
    integrated into po4a)
  * various improvements to the missions and their french translations
  * Remove the "clear session" menu entry. Too dangerous.
  * Graphical consistency between menu choosing the human language,
    and the one choosing the programming language
  * Show in about box where the session gets saved to avoid NFS hell
  * Various typos and little errors hunted down by Pierre-Etienne and JC
  * Improve shortest path exercise by not removing distance marks, so
    that students can compare their computation with the correct one

20111006e:
  * Allow to code in python, javascript or ruby
  * Definitely kill the linearity of lessons (combobox removed)
  * Load the lessons on need only (and save them separately from each
    other)
  * Cleanup the way identica and twitter get informed of student
    progress
  * Textual display of what's wrong when the world is not what's
