Release Notes

This release includes a new "Gold Star" feature that keeps track of the lessons successfully completed, as well as new menu icons for a more polished appearance.  There is at least one user-visible bugfix, as well as significant code cleanup.

Source tar.gz archive for TuxMath 1.5.7, including the Andika font.  Suitable for installation on Unix-style systems using a simple "./configure; make; make install".

Build requires the *-dev files for SDL, SDL_image, SDL_mixer, and SDL_ttf. All of these should be easily available in most Gnu-Linux distributions. The Gnu Autotools are not needed to build from this package.
