    Release Notes: A memory allocation issue for wordlists that contain more than 1024 words has been fixed. Minor portability issues have been fixed. High score list entries can be sorted by points, accuracy, or speed.

      Release Notes: An issue where specially crafted network packets can lead to a division by zero, resulting in a segmentation fault was fixed. Total characters per seconds won't be displayed anymore, instead the more often used words per minute (for correctly entered words) will be shown.

        Release Notes: A major rework of the network code has been done in order to make it actually usable. High scores are not limited to top 10 anymore, and French and Italian translations have been added.

          Release Notes: This release fixes many bugs. The most disturbing was that "enter" and "space" (needed to finish a word if not in cheat mode) were counted as typos. A buffer underrun in file parsing has been fixed, and string operations are always finished with \0, no matter how obvious it might seem that strings fit into the buffer.

            Release Notes: The build process has switched to autotools, allowing translation of menus with gettext and native build support for even more architectures. A possible issue in dropping privileges on Linux has been fixed.

            Hey, it's more than a tool to get your CPS. The "multiplayer mode" is fun (try it)! Now you can show the other geeks who's the fastest hacker of all time :)
