Imperium: Sticks new release shortly

Version 0.0.11 of Imperium:Sticks will be released shortly as the last few bugs from the revision of the start screen are tracked down and eliminated...or masked.

Version 0.0.11 will feature a new start screen to replace the original placeholder, beginnings of internationalization, use of the SDL_TTF library for generic text and enhancements to the internal text manager for specialized text and characters, and a Mac OSX binary package... once I finish figuring out how PackageBuilder works.

Bug reports wanted

I'm working on wrapping up version 0.1, which will be the complete base engine before I start adding content, and I'd like to have it as bulletproof as possible. To that end, I'd sure like to get some feedback and bug reports on the current release. If you download v0.0.9, please feel free to contact me at caerwyn AT with anything you might want to let me know - bugs, problems running the game, ideas for the future. I would greatly appreciate it.
