Changes:

Added negative option to permissions feature. Previously when you set a permission token in the ring game or tournament settings (and Lobby chat permission), that allowed only the players who had a matching token in their account settings to use that feature. Now you have the option to do the opposite where everyone can use the feature except for those with a matching token. You do that by prefixing a minus (or dash) character in front of the token. For example, if you set the Register Permission in a tournament to "test" then only players with the "test" token in their account settings can register for the tournament. But if you set it to "-test" then everyone can register except the players with a "test" token.

Added "Tournament timer event" to Callback Settings group. This new callback will be triggered when any one of these events occur during a tournament: late registration ends, rebuy period ends, add-on period ends, and all no-shows removed. A "Count' parameter is included that indicates the number of late entrants, rebuys, add-ons, and no-shows that occurred.

Added "Auto append port" setting to Site Information group. If you list your site at the http://www.pokermavens.net directory (by setting Directory Listing to Yes), the link used to your site is indicated by the "Internet IP address" setting. Previously the system would automatically append the File Port number to this URL. Now you have the option not to do this in the case where you want the Internet IP to point to a custom login page on your web site. This is especially needed for sites that require session keys for login.

Added "Highlight winning hand" setting to Client Settings group. When this is enabled (the default setting), the client will briefly dim the two Hold'em cards (or four Omaha cards) that were not used by the winning hand at showdown. In Omaha Hi-Lo games, only the Hi hand gets the highlight treatment.

Added "Permissions menu" option to Client Settings group. This determines whether or not the player can view their own permissions in the client. If you're not using the permissions settings at all, you may want to turn this off.

Added "Away" field to RingGamesPlaying / TournamentsPlaying API. This new parameter will report the number of minutes that any players have been sitting out. Also a bug was fixed in the mouseover text that displayed the away time for a player sitting out. Previously it would not update if play was halted when there were less than two active players.

Hand helper info now encrypted before sending to client. This was an old security issue that I finally got around to fixing. It did (edit: did not) make much sense to encrypt the hole cards and not encrypt the hand helper text also. This was not an issue for SSL-enabled sites.

Fixed bug in "Internet IP address" setting. Previously if you changed this after putting your server online, it did not update at http://www.pokermavens.net until you restarted.

Changed default value of Rebuy Threadhold chips to 1500 to match the default Starting Chips value. Previously it had a 0 chip default value.

That ended up being a lot harder than it looks. My routine that determines the hand ranking only saved the card value, not the suits. But the highlighter needs both so all that had to be back calculated. Took about 500 lines of code, most of that for Omaha.
