I'm already hard at work on the next release, and here are some things to look forward too...
  • Fading Explosions
  • Clearing of land with explosions
  • Falling land and tanks

Well that ought to keep everyone busy for a while, so check it out!

And as always, even though I am a Mad Fiend Java Hacker, some bugs to pop up from time to time. Be sure to use the project bug tracker at the SourceForge project page to help us out by reporting those pesky bugs. THANKS!
