Hello Xconq Game Designers,

   I have just added two new global variables to GDL. These are 
'unit-gbox-border-color' and 'unit-gbox-fill-color'. They allow you to 
adjust the border and fill colors of a transport's grouping box (the 
square around it and its occupants). Currently only the SDL interface 
honor this (yes, Sdlconq now supports grouping boxes), but I hope to 
integrate it into the Tcl/Tk interface as well. (At some point, I may 
also allow for adjusting the border style of the grouping box.)

   There is a new file, 'colors.txt', in the 'doc' directory. It is 
taken from the Tk documentation, and describes the colors available in 
Tk. I added support for this exact same colors database into the SDL 
interface. This means that if you specify any color named in 
'colors.txt' for a GDL global or property, that color will be available 
in both the Tcl/Tk and SDL interfaces. (Of course, the Curses interface 
ignores such things; it would be fun to colorize that interface however....)

   These features are in CVS and will be available in the next file release.
