Windows bugfix release 0.3.1-alpha

There seemed to be several problems running Kalyp on Windows, which was somehow caused by the run.bat batch file and inclusion of junit.jar in the classpath.

Release 0.3.1-alpha hopefully fixes these problems, and includes a couple of other fixes plus extended game commands help.

Windows problems?

Some problems in running Kalyp in Windows environment have been reported, with a typical Java error saying

"Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError : GameMain"

If you encounter similiar problems using run.bat, it would be helpful if you could mail a description of the problem to <mamakela@users.sourceforge.net> with information of your Windows and Java versions.

Kalyp now works in Linux, the problem was it trying to use the Windows JCurses package. Use 'run.sh' for Linux, 'run.bat' for Windows.

Both the CVS and the kalyp-0.3-alpha release packages have been updated.
