Nice work

I've checked it under my linux and it works OK. I've used QT's qmake to compile and it wasn't very hard. It only needs changing few include lines and setting correct include paths, but some makefiles would be great for inexperienced users.

only one really small bad thing I need to tell - readme.txt contains version number 1.4.3 ;)

Now it's time to make reall nice game 8-)

Thanks for developing this project.

Can you confirm which SVN revision is the official 2.0.0 release? I think it is 127. Can't tell if there is also a tag in SVN for this version.

I spent a lot of time on 2.0. I will just do bug fixes and apply patches while I rest up. So um, bring on those bug reports and patches. :)
