      Release Notes: The program has been split up into two library components (core and computer player) and the CLI / X interface. The X interface now has a console, so most of the CLI commands work in X. There are several new rulesets.

      Release Notes: Piece types now have a 'dbl_trap_squares' rule, specifying which square types can trigger a double trap.

      Release Notes: Square types can now use "capt_sides_pieces" to determine exactly which pieces are affected by the "capt_sides" override. This doesn't affect any previous official rulesets.
