Some weekends are just great. After several weeks of hardly any coding activity at all I found time, inspiration and itches again and the results may be there! The monopd boardgame server finally supports the dreaded "10% or $200"-tax which is part of the official Monopoly rules. See the monopd News page for full details on this game rules and its implementation.
On a sadder note: some of the monopd changes necessary changed the API and gameplay enough that older clients will not work anymore. So, cvs up your Atlantik checkout! More details on how the monopd changes affect Atlantik can be found on the Atlantik News page, including workarounds for older Atlantik versions.
Also some good news on KDEnews.UNIXcode.org: we're fixing bugs, getting article submissions.. hopefully new items keep filling the queue and more users will register!
Looking forward to making some new releases of my code the next few weeks. KDE 3.1 will be out in a couple of months and for the first time in a long while I feel like I can include a decent Atlantik with it. :)
