So... I bought myself a ChessCraft mug. Is that vain?

I'm really happy with this awesome mug!

In case anyone else is interested, here's a link to the new online store: ChessCraft Bazaar. Good to note: these are printed individually by Zazzle so they are quite pricey, and I hardly make any money off them. So if you get something, do it for fun and not so much to support me. Let me know if you have any ideas for other Zazzle products or ChessCraft designs. Right now there's only a shirt and a mug because that's what I wanted for myself.

I am very amused. Maybe one day there will be a gift giveaway if you find a bunch of relics in game.

1.11.7 Bugfixes

When I increment a minor version (like 1.11.6 to 1.11.7) there are no new features, so I don't make an announcement anywhere, but I guess this time it's hitching a ride here. You shouldn't notice any changes, aside from ten bugfixes. If you signed up for the open beta testing, let me know in the next couple weeks if there's some critical problem, before I release 1.11.7 it to everyone.

In other news, I'm working on a popular request: a very big new feature. Get excited!
