    - If jar client can't connect to server, returns to first panel, with buttons to connect or practice
    - If try to start server in JSettlers.jar, but port already in use, show message instead of exiting immediately
    - If server's debug commands are on, warn at connect
    - Get Practice Game options from practice server, not from most recently started game

    - If server DB is empty, use default parameters for all bots
    - Server constructors: throw exceptions instead of System.exit

    For more details, please see the release notes.

    1.1.x is the old stable branch; work on 2.0 has taken a long time, so this is how bug fixes and minor feature improvements get released. The two lines split right after the 1.1.13 release last November.

    Most work on 1.1.x is backported from 2.0; changeset comments often mention a hash from a master commit.
