          Release Notes: A lot of changes were made since 2.9.14, including bugfixes (for a severe async problem with the central server), code cleanups, and some new and improved features. The package is now split up into different sections, which can be more easily updated at various times. Almost all of them are necessary, except for the sounds and the levels. Without the levels, only playing as a client will be possible.

            Release Notes: The TNT branch started as a client/server XBlast rewrite by the original author (Original TNT). Since then, it was continuously improved by different contributors (Enhanced TNT) and the features of the "Enhanced 2.6 (EPFL)" version were merged into it too. Compared to the original XBlast, this version offers many more levels, more bombs and extras, an optional central game play server, a high-score system, and Laola & Looser animations for the characters.
