+<h1>Freecell Solver 3.16.0 was Released + New Screencast</h1>

+<p>
+<a href="http://fc-solve.shlomifish.org/">Freecell Solver</a> version 3.16.0,
+has been released. Freecell Solver 3.16.0 is available in
+the form of a source archive, from
+<a href="http://fc-solve.shlomifish.org/download.html">the
+    download page</a>. Freecell Solver is an open source framework (library
+and some command line applications), for automatically solving several
+variants of card Solitaire / Patience games, including Freecell.
+</p>
+
+<p>
+This new release took about a month to prepare, and also contains less
+profound changes than the previous release, but still quite a lot to look
+for. It features the <tt>-l micro-finance-improved</tt> and
+<tt>-l qualified-seed</tt> presets, which improve upon the average
+solution length (at the expense of speed). The
+<tt>--flares-choice</tt> flag was added and one can specify
+<tt>--flares-choice fcpro</tt> to choose based on the lenght of the
+Freecell Pro moves. Another additional flag is
+<tt>--flares-iters-factor</tt> which multiplies the time the flares run at
+by a factor for a speed/solution-length trade-off.
+</p>
+
+<p>
+Finally, the inidividual flares are now recycled and their memory is
+reused when they are no longer needed which yields a RAM optimisation
+in certain cases.
+</p>
+
+<p>
+More information about all these can be found in the
+<a href="http://fc-solve.shlomifish.org/docs/#distributed-docs">distributed
+    documents</a> of Freecell Solver.
+</p>
+
+<p>
+In addition to all that,
+<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hYdqNuX4WJc">a new screencast
+    of PySolFC solving Freecell using Freecell Solver</a> is now available on
+YouTube. Make sure you expand the details for all the credits of the software
+and other material that was used for its creation.
+</p>
+
+<p>
+Enjoy and happy holidays.
