SGF Utils 0.3 available

From: Thien-Thi Nguyen
Subject: SGF Utils 0.3 available
Date: Wed, 31 Oct 2012 14:47:35 +0100

release notes:

  Another day, another bugfix.


README excerpt:

  SGF Utils is a set of programs for manipulating Smart Game
  Format files, principally for the game of Go.  This release
  includes one tool: the viewing program sgfv.  The code is
  "early to middling alpha"; see HACKING for why.

NEWS excerpt:

  - 0.3 | 2012-10-31

    - bugfix: redisplay comments correctly on ‘v’

        Previously, ‘v’ updated the board, leaving stale comments,
        requiring ‘C-l’ for correct redisplay.  Now comments are OK.

    - prefix arg displayed

        Some would say this is user-coddling of the worst sort, but
        that's ok.  Perhaps in the future we can emulate Emacs and only
        display the prefix arg after one second of inactivity...

    - indication of possible variations

        The lineage for a node now displays with a trailing ‘/N’ for
        nodes that have sibling variations.  This basically means when
        you see ‘/N’, you can type ‘v’ or even ‘Mv’, where (<= 1 M N),
        w/o fear of the dread admonishment "(no variations)" appearing.
        For example, given the gametree (two forks, three ends):


        node - lineage - what happens when you type ‘v’
           A   -         -
           B   -         -
           C   v.1/2     jump to E
           D   v.1       -
           E   v.2/2     jump to C
           F   v.2.1/2   jump to G
           G   v.2.2/2   jump to F
           H   v.2.2     -

    - partial view concavities stark

        Previously, concavities in a partial view were displayed w/ the
        board bg color.  Now, they are displayed w/ the space bg color.
        Fellow cave-dwellers should find it slightly easier on the eyes.

    - demo SGF file spiffed

        The SGF file for "make check" now includes suggestions to use
        'v' in the appropriate places.  It also includes near the end of
        the main line a sequence of non-move nodes that exercise partial
        view support.  (See also files bad and sen in sgf/, for more.)
