GNOME Sudoku 0.5.0 released!

0.5.0 is a long overdue release. This fixes a number of outstanding bugs. More importantly, we introduce the much-requested notes feature (available as an option in the "View" menu) to let users type their own notes into sudoku squares. Automatic resizing of squares has also been improved, as well as various other UI hiccups which have been ironed out. Finally, we introduce many more translations. Some bugfixes and improvements in the i18n setup were made last minute, so poor or incomplete translation is largely my (dev)'s fault and not the fault of translators -- this can be fixed by adding to the translations at the rosetta page here:

GNOME Sudoku 0.3.4 Released!

GNOME Sudoku 0.3.4 has been released. 0.3.4 fixes some longstanding bugs, creates platform-independent debian packages and a source tarball which should work "out of the box" for pretty much everyone. GNOME Sudoku 0.3.4 also changes how "autofill" options work, providing a more useful "fill" button (Control-F) which fills in the current square, and keeping the old "Fill" as "Fill all squares" in the menu (this advances the game a step in the simple solving algorithms in every possible way). Note that this is a step toward possibly removing the old "autofill" altogether, so speak up if you like that feature.

GNOME Sudoku 0.3 released

GNOME Sudoku 0.3 has been released. GNOME Sudoku is a sudoku player and generator written in pygtk. GNOME Sudoku generates unique, symmetrical puzzles and ranks them according to difficulty, allowing you to choose your level of play. Special features include high scores, infinite undo, and automatic saving of all games you play, ever. Version 0.3 introduces a function to print multiple sudokus at a time (so that you can, for example, print 20 sudokus of increasing difficulty to give to a friend) and gives the user an interface to the generator so they can custom generate as many sudoku as they like (previous versions simply generated sudoku automatically when you were running low -- we still do this, but now give you the option of having more control if you like).
