atom4 - An original two-player color puzzle game
atom4 (4.1-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release.
* This is the Just Before A Major Overhaul release. There are very few
cosmetic changes, but a lot of internal improvement especially in
the AI. The following entries are summarized from the (admittedly
less readable) TODO file.
* Visible changes:
- Fixed ncurses interface which fails to render the board background
properly under some terminals. This is a hack; it is likely a
libncurses bug related to the mutt bleeding backgrounds bug.
- AI player now has a real, properly-implemented min-max algorithm
with alpha/beta pruning. The default difficulty level (-d2) is now
quite challenging; -d3 and above are now very tough to beat.
- Some cosmetic improvements in the ncurses interface.
* Internal changes:
- Fixed some bugs in the event loop
- Fixed a major event loop sequencing problem. Man these things are
- Event loop now has timers, although they aren't used by anything
in this release. (Not anything linked into the game, that is.)
There are also other significant improvements to the event loop
- Added profiling code to help with AI optimization (game trees that
grow with O(n!) are NOT fun to search at high depths...)
- Preliminary network gaming code. Sorry, this is currently not in a
sufficiently advanced stage for you to actually play a network
game yet. The code is currently not actually linked into the game.
* About version numbers:
- Hindsight is 20-20, as they say. The first Debian release bore a
version number of 4-1, which I now realize was a mistake. The
game's internal version number was 1.1 (as those who played the
ncurses interface might have noticed); the 4 came from an archive
number I use to maintain codebases. I refuse to roll the epoch
just because of this, so to fix this inconsistency, I've bumped
the internal version number to 4.1 and using 4.1-1 for the Debian
version. This is an unfortunate unintentional version bloat. :-(
- Atom-4 will likely reach 4.infinity before 5.0.
* debian/control: grammatical correction; upgrade to Standards-Version
