    Release Notes: Unknown commands are again sent to the server (thus enabling you to use server-supplied commands like /help or /op). Multiple channels and tetrifast game mode are now supported. Pieces now have shadows so that you can easily see where are they going to fall. The team name is now shown near each player's playfield.

      Release Notes: From 0.6, several minor bugs were fixed, and the feature set was extended a little. The most important/interesting ones: counterclockwise rotation was introduced, as well as IPv6 support, and junk lines are not added for multi-line clears by team members anymore.

            key configuration?
            Is there a way to configure which keys move and rotate the blocks? right now tetrinet is pretty much the only thing that keeps me using windows at all.
