    162 This is for you Grandmasters. The game play feels sleek at higher difficulty levels.
    163 For 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  :)
    164 
    165 
    166 Hint: 
    167  Exchange like crazy. She gets less wise with less pieces on the board.

    175   * skin and add-on support fixed for pieces
    176   * crash bug #66 addressed  (thanks HotStuff2 for catching this)
    177 
    178 This one is for Armadillo and Eurisko. Your turn gents :)   
    179 
    180 == Caissa 0.84-alpha  January 6,2008 ==
    181   * Save on exit mode
    182   * fixed preference discrepancy for first time users
    183   * 8 bugs were addressed(2 crash bugs, 2 desync and other 4 were nonsense of a different kind)
    184   * Minor engine tuning.
    185 
    186   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]]
    187  ''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'' :) 
    188 
    189 == Caissa 0.83b-alpha  January 1,2008 ==
    190  * proper handling of draws
    191  * the app doesn't hang anymore when one side wins
    192  * if game is finished, the app  blocks chessboard view, until button "new" pressed
    193 
    194 == Caissa 0.83a-alpha  December 31,2007 ==
    195  * addressed 1 memory leak and 2 crash bugs (you can safely drag chess pieces off the board. If you still can let me know :)
    196 
    197 == Caissa 0.83-alpha  December 31,2007 ==

    200  * removed dead reference to Advanced Shape for pieces 
    201  * skin and add-on support
    202  * off-board piece view
    203 [[br]]
    204 
    205 == Caissa 0.82a-alpha  December 25,2007 ==
    206  * repackaged to comply with ste's requirements and the  common packaging practice
    207 If 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]]
    208 '''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.
