“Don’t Hang” version 1.1 released

I am happy to announce the release of version 1.1 of “Don’t Hang”, a simple GTK+ hangman game. You can download it here.

Don’t Hang

What’s new?

  • This is the first time “Don’t Hang” has its own Web page.
  • A Turkish and Russian translation has been added.
  • The guessed word’s font size now depends on window size.
  • All whitespace is initially visible now, not just the space character.
  • Fixes crash when opening an empty file with no lines.
  • Fixes CRLF line endings not being interpreted correctly.
  • Fixes angle brackets being misinterpreted as Pango markup.
  • Fixes keyboard focus not being on word input after opening a file.
  • Fixes display of bidirectional text (but only without weak characters).
  • Miscellaneous build system fixes.

Special thanks go to my friends Merve and Assel who supplied various translations and I also want to mention my cousin Marlene without whose enjoyment of a hangman game demo I wrote for my GTK+ workshop last year I would not have brought this game to a stand-alone release.
