      Release Notes: A bug that sometimes prevented you from chomping was fixed. Shorts are used rather than doubles for audio data, saving lots of memory. Two new people to chomp upon were added.

        Release Notes: Support was added for using the keyboard if no joystick is present. The meals now shoot arrows at you, but there is no damage yet. The user is allowed to skip introductory music by pressing a button. The --version option was added. Copyright information which referred to "Gneutronica" instead of "Bethewumpus" was fixed. Now you can specify a sound output device other than the default with the --sounddevice option.
