 Netrek XP 2006, Version 1.3:
+- fixed a bug with RCM kill messages when kills were higher than 255 but less than 320
 - added new function keys, control-z and control-a, for zooming.  Control-z zooms in,
   and control-a zooms out.  As part of the benefit of having all graphics scale, ALL ship
   bitmap sets now show ships to 256 positions.

+  windows and clickable URLs.
 - added the ability to change the size of the local or map windows!  This is a huge improvement,
   and is probably the most often requested feature.  There really is no limit on how big or small
   you can make the windows.  As you increase local window size, you can see further, giving
   somewhat of a gameplay advantage - you can see ships, shields, explosions, but not weapons
   fire other than your own torps.  Just as important, you can now choose a different size
   for local vs map window.  A typical user may want a 750x750 local but only a 400x400 map.
+  The upper pixel limit is 5000x5000 for either map or local window, but I don't expect
+  anyone has a monitor to support even close to that limit.
 - most netrekrc window's geometries are now commented out (all except map and local), this
   is because adjusting the size of local or map will now do a pretty good job of autoplacing
   all the other windows for you
