This is ONE OF 3 responses to Vol 16 John 1 ("Suggestion Box")...

Considering the vast number of changes undertaken as part of Archipelago 2.0, we're lucky to have escaped with so few bugs. There were, however, one or two.

  • Most of you have been repeatedly nagged about a font called Palantino 24. This was HyperCard's doing, but I have the cure included among this issue's packages. See VC 17 John 4.
  • As you know, I was forced to call each of you and fix a tiny little bug that prevented card creation. Thanks to Larry and Drury for first bringing this to my attention. The little varmint is now fixed (I HOPE!) and should never trouble us again.
  • Several of you commented about the Monopoly board no longer lighting up. This is a feature, not a bug. Over the next few issues, the archipelago stack will evolve into a separate, static stack. All the action will be confined to the voice volumes. You can even bypass the old 'pelago stack altogether if you want. Times they are a changing.
  • There are MANY new changes included in this issue and more just over the horizon. For a brief summary, See VC 17 John 6.
I'm sure a few more bugs will slip through my nets this time. Keep those complaints (and suggestions!) coming in!
