Fixed Since beta1:
*********************

A number of problems present in 3.1.0-beta1 are fixed in 3.1.0-beta2:

* Board Picker was not being displayed when starting a new game.
* Fixed IllegalArgumentException when starting modules with private maps.
* Heap settings in preferences work now, and are configurable per module.
* Fixed several NullPointerExceptions.
* Updated README.
* Attempting to open unrecognized file types no longer fails in odd ways.
* Various ADC2 importer fixes.

There are several known issues remaining to be resolved, among which are:

* Modules which use autoextensions are cannot be loaded.
* Missing application and file type icons.

We hope to have these fixed by the beta3 release.

New Features in 3.1.0
*********************

* Improved installation: For Windows, a real Windows installer/uninstaller.
For Macs, a single-file disk image. Download, click, and install.

* File associations: Files with .vmod, .vsav, and .vlog extensions are
now associated with VASSAL (on Windows and Macs). Double-click a module
to load it in VASSAL!

* New Module Manager frontend: The Module Manager displays all of your
modules and save/log files, giving you a convenient way to organize
them all.

* Improved memory management: VASSAL now uses significantly less memory
for various graphics-related tasks. Heap sizes may be set from within
VASSAL via the Preferences.

* Improved zooming: Zoom your maps to whatever size you want.

* Aide de Camp 2 module importer: Convert any ADC2 module to a VASSAL
module with one click.

* Many, many other minor improvements, and scores of bug fixes.

This is a beta release, and may still contain some rough edges. Should
you find any problems/oddities/bugs, please tell us so that we can fix
them before VASSAL 3.1.0 is released. Also, if you've had problems with
3.0.x or 3.1.0-beta1, please check and let us know if those problems are
resolved in 3.1.0-beta2.
