gnome-games 2.11.1

gnome-games 2.11.1
==================

Finally, a very belated 2.11.x entry for gnome-games. A lot has changed
and I've probably missed a few things, but here are the main points:

General:
- (Slightly) improved UI for starting network games.
- Lots of HIG-conformance tweaks leading to nicer dialogs.
- Use of modern APIs and stock items, once again giving a nicer feel
   to the UI.

Aisleriot:
- Per-game options work again. e.g. Klondike has the option for 3-card
deals.
- Valid places to drop cards are now hilighted (only on some games).
- Dropping cards in the right place is now easier.
- Double-clicking the foundation in Klondike auto-moves cards to the
   foundatione. Very useful at the end of the game.
- Fullscreen mode.
- Gay Gordons is guaranteed to be solvable.
- Long card lists are automatically expand and contract to fit the
window.

Four in a row:
- A new game starts the moment the prgram is launched.

Gometris:
- Use the new high-scores dialog.
