netrek-client-cow 3.2.6 was released, adding visible tractors for other
ships when supplied by server, improving observer view, adding a fast
guest login feature on the metaserver list (one click to play),
reworking login to avoid display hangs when a server or link is slow,
and handling disconnection during play more gracefully.
