Released version 3.20 of my "draw" simulation
software, making the first time I've
simultaneously provided Linux, Mac OS X and Windows binaries of the program.
There's nothing special added to this release - it's not quicker (in fact,
Fedora 10's gcc produced such appallingly slow binaries, I had to use
Fedora 8's gcc instead!) and I've done nothing "interesting" with the threaded
code this time. That's all coming with the "exciting" draw 4.00 release
I'll be working on shortly, where tables could be displayed anywhere between
0.00 (yes, truly instant!) and 0.34 seconds on a quad core Linux box,
depending on the numbers drawn.

Fixed a drawn order bug with the Euro Millions Lucky Stars in
the "All Winning Numbers" pages - it had been there ever since the
first draw :-( Basically, if you chose drawn order, the Lucky Stars
would always be displayed in ascending order. This was something like a
3-line fix, but I'd never spotted the problem until I got an e-mail
about it today.
