Pongathon - 1.1.0
Josef Polak (hardsphere)
Pongathon is yet another clone of Pong written using pygame. I began writing it as an excercise to learn pygame. I don't have plans for it to be anything grander than an excercise for my own benefit, but I'm going to release it anyway. Pongathon was originally called Pyng (a lame name, I know) until it was discovered that the name was already taken by another open source project. Pongathon is by no means complete, and I do not promise it will ever be.
For 1.1.0, I've completely re-written the game code to keep it easier to maintain. Hitting escape quits the game immediately. The graphical code has been optimized to use less CPU time by using dirty rect animation and removing unnecessary flips. I've also added some corner collision code to the game logic. And I did some minor cosmetic tweaks as well.
