     85This is for you Grandmasters. The game play feels sleek at higher difficulty levels.
     86For those who think Caissa can really defend herself well.  I can beat her at -4 9 out of 10 times and at -3 i can make it to the draw every other time.  Month ago, I felt inadequate too  :)

     89Hint: 
     90 Exchange like crazy. She gets less wise with less pieces on the board.

     101This one is for Armadillo and Eurisko. Your turn gents :)   
     102
     103== Caissa 0.84-alpha  January 6,2008 ==
     104  * Save on exit mode
     105  * fixed preference discrepancy for first time users
     106  * 8 bugs were addressed(2 crash bugs, 2 desync and other 4 were nonsense of a different kind)
     107  * Minor engine tuning.
     108
     109  There were many internal changes, that shouldn't affect your gameplay experience and will not have any visual effect for now, but it is foundation for many new things. They will fix some exotic bugs, like you can castle with rook that was  moved and put back if you save/restore between move and castling. [[br]]
     110 ''IMPORTANT: This release will wipe out your saved game and preferences, due the the refactoring of the preference system. Not much to loose, but I warned you'' :) 
     111
     112== Caissa 0.83b-alpha  January 1,2008 ==
     113 * proper handling of draws
     114 * the app doesn't hang anymore when one side wins
     115 * if game is finished, the app  blocks chessboard view, until button "new" pressed
     116
     117== Caissa 0.83a-alpha  December 31,2007 ==
     118 * addressed 1 memory leak and 2 crash bugs (you can safely drag chess pieces off the board. If you still can let me know :)

     120== Caissa 0.83-alpha  December 31,2007 ==

     123 * removed dead reference to Advanced Shape for pieces 
     124 * skin and add-on support

     126[[br]]
     127
     128== Caissa 0.82a-alpha  December 25,2007 ==
     129 * repackaged to comply with ste's requirements and the  common packaging practice
     130If you have 0.82 or earlier. Please uninstall the app via Installer.app and install again. It is very important. '''Uninstall & Install as the opposite of just Update'''.[[br]]
     131'''Update''' You should uninstall caissa.us source if you installed Caissa from Ste resource. That will fix loop update problem.  Thanks  _BigBoss_ for the tip.
