        Release Notes: Drawn rectangles are now updated all at once instead of one of a time. A different random function is now used, and the method of searching for the datadir is now more intelligent. The delay code was rewritten to use SDL functionality. Fixes were made for a bug where the pixels were accessed unlocked, a compiling bug which occurred when not using SDL_mixer, and a bug which caused shield strength and number of bombs to be reset after hitting an astroid.
