Thanks!

We hadn't kept a proper change log for 3.0. I've constructed one
for you here:

3.0.0 - 9 August 2007

* Choose between central server and direct peer-to-peer connection
* Internationalization support: Modules can be translated into any
language via module extensions
* Create standalone installers for a module: installed executable
will launch module directly in play mode using the correct version
of VASSAL
* Support for Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) images
* Improved HelpFiles: display in external browser window. Create
HelpFiles by bundling the contents of a folder
* Add arbitrary Global Key Commands to the right-click menu of a Deck
* Copy/Paste traits when editing a GamePiece
* Preferences to auto-prompt to start log files at Start and End of a
Replay.
* LOS thread enhancements: snap to grid, report action, echo on
opponent's window
* Make delay before scrolling at map edge configurable
* All toolbar buttons have configurable tooltip text
* Configurable text for the "Mark Moved" button
* A Moving stack should not pick up other counters from stacks
* Layer option to automatically track a Property value
* Allow Layer Reset command to reference $..$ properties
* New tabs for Notes Window
* Enable 'Last move Highlighter' by default in all modules
* Allow Transparent Border/Bg color in Mouse Over Stack Viewer
* Send To Location - specify Zone, other piece's location
* Shift clicking on map should not deselect counters

3.0.1 - 13 August 2007

* Bug: Multi-Action buttons no longer appear as sub-menus within a Toolbar
menu
* Bug: Dynamic Properties are correctly substituted within a Text Label.

3.0.2 - 16 August 2007
* Not released.

3.0.3 - 21 August 2007

properties editor.

3.0.6 - 5 September 2007
* Not released.

3.0.7 - 26 September 2007

faster than the previous smooth-scaling algorithm, so the "Use smooth
scaling" preferences option has been removed.

* Restored high-quality image scaling preference.

* Bug: Fixed some problems with non-docking Map Windows, including the Map

* Bug: Suppressible reports for Dice Buttons

3.0.13 - 8 November 2007
Usability improvements:

* Move up/down/top/bottom keys preserve order when multiple pieces are
selected.
* Pieces dropped onto an expanded stack won't snap to the hexgrid instead.

marker.

3.0.14 - 17 December 2007

Glad to help.

BTW, I wouldn't recommend using any of these except 3.0.17. Several
of the bugs corrected in earlier releases were rather serious.

Joel,

I think the return to any deck and setup stack by location name are in
there somewhere. Can't remember when.

If you have time, could you look for them? (Or suggest to me where I
should look?) I'd like to add them to the list.

It looks like revision 2593 into the trunk. I'm having trouble
figuring out what version that was.

I believe it first appeared in 3.0.15. Is the decription ok?

3.0.15 - 17 December 2007
* Bug: NullPointerException in Embelishment
* RFE: SetupStack now understands locations on grids and regions.

Sounds okay to me. I'm intending to generalise it a bit better so
that other elements can understand location names, but it's further
down on my list right now.
