GTetrinet 0.7.5

Application

GTetrinet 0.7.5

Description

GTetrinet is a Tetrinet client for GNOME2. Tetrinet is a variant of the popular Tetris brick game, that can be played simultaneously by 6 players. GTetrinet's goal is to remain completely compatible with the Windows, original client.

Notes

This release is basically "we're bored, so let's release whatever is in CVS". Which isn't much, anyway, as the whole GTetrinet development has slowed down quite a bit in the last months. We have yet another improvement for azerty keyboard users and a few HIG improvements in some dialogs. Oh, and the translations. 3 of them were updated. We could really use help if you want to see a new release before... say... March. Subscribe to gtetrinet-list. It's free!

Fixes

  • HIGification improvements in several dialogs (Dagfinn Ilmari MannsÃ¥ker).
  • Make the default keys usable in azerty keyboards (Dani).
  • New and updated translations: Azerbaijani (Metin Amiroff), Polish (Artur Flinta), Japanese (KAMAGASAKO Masatoshi).
