Release Notes: ios::in was removed from ofstream declarations in pigsty.cpp, so Makin' Bakon now opens scores file properly during start-up. The copyright was updated to include the year 2003.
Release Notes: Minor code alterations to compile with GNU GCC 3.2.
Release Notes: This version accepts defaults for the keyboard type, foreground, background, and bold colors from an rc file, which can be overridden by command-line options. A new lesson derived from fortune offensive archives was added, and a bonus point system that awards one WPM every time the target speed is passed was added. A lot of the code was overhauled and the error handling was greatly improved. Default lessons are now divided into groups, effectively halving the size of each lesson.
Release Notes: The Makefile now checks for the existence of curses includes. Minor changes were also made to the default lesson texts.
Release Notes: Hand-rolled poetry, Star Trek, and offensive fortune archives have been added. The Makefile has been greatly improved. Paths to data and fortune archive files are now compile-time defined. A bug that re-painted the virtual keyboard in lesson screens after choosing '(R)epeat lesson' or '(N)ext lesson' has been fixed.
