ShisenSho for Windows 0.2.2 released

ShisenSho is a Windows clone of the famous KDE game KShisen.

Version 0.2.2 is mainly a maintenance release.

ShisenSho for Windows 0.2.1 released

ShisenSho is a Windows clone of the famous KDE game KShisen.

Version 0.2.1 is a major bugfix and compatibility release. It is no longer compatible with Windows versions prior to Windows 2000, including Windows Me, due to the fact that transparency works very faulty there.

Winter Edition of ShisenSho for Windows 0.1.2.3

The way to the next release takes much longer than I suspected. It will have lots of new features, but the bugs and codechanges are driving me crazy...

However, in the meantime I took out the 0.1.2.3 code and decorated this version with a little winter feeling. Hope, you have fun.

There are no other new features nor any known bugs fixed.

ShisenSho is a Windows clone of the famous KDE game KShisen.
