Below is a summary of changes, taken verbatim from the ChangeLog document. For the full story, a list of issues closed for this release is available here on GitHub.

Other improvements and changes

  • When the game is resumed to settle a life & death dispute, a "Resume Play" alert is displayed if the game rules allow resumption with non-alternating play. Previously the alert buttons were sometimes displayed in the order Black/White and someteimes in the order White/Black, depending on whose player's turn it was. Now the alert buttons are always displayed in the order Black/White (#300)
