Version 1.0.27 (2011-9-24) Main Changes:
  • * Multiple small usability issues solved.
    * Still one more problem found and solved in game server.
    * Game server is now scalable.
Version is already quite well working, so now I will focus on finalizing it, like creating home page and start up screen.

    * New communication protocol between phone and server. Should fix all pending issues.
    * Huge number of bug fixes in client and server.
    * Playing levels have changed.
    * Due to internal database changes, previous playing levels are lost.
This version is close to beta version.

Version 1.0.36 (2012-01-15) includes small fixes:
  • * Fixes to interaction with server.
    * Atari-go rules explanations have been improved and expanded.
    * Lots of debugging done, resulting in number of small fixes.
In next version Hactar will change to AGA go rules, as they are easier to computer.
If I manage to create working Japanese implementation, I will later switch back to those.
