GGZ 0.0.12 Release Announcement

About the GGZ Gaming Zone
The GGZ Gaming Zone (GGZ) is an open-sourced Internet gaming center. Similar to other online gaming sites, players from all over the world can login and sit at tables where they can play their favorite games and chat with other players. GGZ supports multiple rooms with varying skill levels, and records your statistics so you can see how you match up against other players. 19 game servers (plus 8 GGZCards engines) and 27 game clients (plus 6 GGZBoard games) are available in total, as well as 6 independent game projects which provide GGZ support.
