      Release Notes: Encoding of the library is now guessed if UTF-8 fails. A bug where two or more fish with the same pronunciation could appear simultaneously has been fixed. Closing the game settings dialog now exits the game. If a single character has two or more pronunciations defined in the loaded library (or libraries), that character will now never appear.

        Release Notes: The panel containing panel containing retry buttons now takes a proper size with varying look-and-feel (the buttons were larger than 32 pixels high on certain platforms). Errors are now properly flagged for command line option problems, etc. The brain-damaged --quick option has been removed. The word "minutes" has been moved in the game settings dialog to a more appropriate and visible location. Missed words can now be saved to a file for studying or use as a character library.
