      Release Notes: Any object can now have a default zorder: rooms are (by default) placed under everything, doors just above the rooms, and marks over everything. Quests can now be exported in PNG format (but the quality is much much lower than EPS).

        Release Notes: This release adds a GUI, written in Swing, so it'll look native on Mac OS X, Windows, and GTK 1. There are three new icons.

          Release Notes: Quite a lot of icons have been added: every known "official'' HQ icon is in HeroScribe now. An unofficial Dwarf icon has been added. Every object has both European and American icons: this means that every quest can be rendered in any layout. The layout given in the quest file can be overridden by using the ``--force-region'' option. "List.html'' has been ravamped. Icons have been tailored to better please the eye. There are various fixes.
