    I wonder what has happened with notation for half-neutrals in solutions in PY v.4.71-4.73.
    Like, the solution to No.871 by PY4.69 looks like:

    a) 1.Bc7*b6 hNg2-c4=nh 2.nhNc4-e8=wh Rh2-h5 3.hNe8-g7=nh + nhNg7-e8=bh #

    but in 4.73 “hn” seems to be used for half-neutral, but for the “departure” only (1…hnNg2-c4), and change of color is the same as before, just “h” (=nh; =wh; =bh):

    a) 1.Bc7*b6 hnNg2-c4=nh 2.nhnNc4-e8=wh Rh2-h5 3.hnNe8-g7=nh + nhnNg7-e8=bh #

    I believe the first version looked better. Notation like “nhnNc4” looks too heavy 🙂
    Either it’s a bug, or an intention to change the notation?

    Probably changed to differentiate between hurdlecolourchanging pieces (now shown as ‘hcc’) and halfneutral pieces (hn).

    I’ve updated http://sanguis.xs4all.nl/popeye with the new development version 4.74.
