A problem with keyboard events being dropped has been uncovered while testing jQuizShow with JRE 1.4 on Windows; this problem did not occur under 1.3.1. I am looking into a fix for this and *hopefully* I will be able to fix it and release jQuizShow this weekend. Stay tuned!

I have received some feedback from people interested in the game. One request was for support for internationalization. This will the first priority for the 1.2 release (1.1.x will be the development version). Meanwhile, the 1.0 release will include limited internationalization support, primarily Unicode or other encoding for the question database file. The rest of the game will be fully internationalized in 1.2.
I have come up with some of my own (poor) sound effects/music for some of the game events. I also located some excellent royalty-free music that I would like to use for the background music for the game. Currently, I am negotiating with the author for permission to release his music with the game. Stay tuned!
The game is basically ready for release. Just awaiting the decision regarding the music, fixing some bugs, and tweaking the UI...

More than likely, the sound effect/loops will be lacking when it is first released unless I can get some help with them (hint, hint). The original sound effects I had with the jQuizShow were recorded from the TV show, and thus, they cannot be used in a GNU GPL release without violating copyright laws.
