Evolution of a Go program

About the development of Moyo Go Studio, software to (help) play the Oriental game of Go. Go is a two-player zero-sum game of perfect information. It is considered much harder than Chess. Currently, in spite of enormous effort expended, no computer program plays it above the level of a beginner.

SQL databases can be cool

Today's auto-update will have a "database query history" feature that takes pictures of the query entry dialog and shows them in a new "history" panel so that you can re-do that query later, perhaps on a different database.

The history scroller on the top left does not have a hint, because it would obscure the "history image".

Because the history feature, when "opened", takes up some vertical space, I also made the diagram down-sizeable further. Both features have been requested by customers. With hundreds of engaged customers, I have a to-do list of at least as many items, and I am dedicated to implementing them all :)
