971214 News in release 0.5.2
1. Sound for the car.
2. Improved error-handling and cosmetic changes.
3. Cleaning up the code (Mostly transparent to the users)

NOTE ! If you are uppgrading from 0.5.0 or 0.5.1:
Due to an erlier misspelling I had to rename the preference-file to "ForeignFruitInvaders Pref", if
you want to keep your old settings and HighScores rename the old pref-file to the new name. (
you find in your "SystemsFolder:Preferences") It's the same file-format, just another name.

971116 News and enhancements in release 0.5.1

1. Patches and fixes to improve misc. sprite behavior.
2. Made "Reposition of the mouse" optional, because there is a slight chance that this feature
may cause crashes in future releases of MacOS.

971026 News in release 0.5

1. Settings and score are now stored in a preferencefile, placed in Systemfolder:Preferencefolder
instead of the application itself. Your settings will now be keept intact while updating FFI, and
no more problems having the application stored on a read-only volume.

2. A more fancy look on the score-panel. This is a optional feature. You may want to turn it
off on a low-end computer.

3. The timer is now represented by "your neighbour's car", if you take too much time to finish one
level a HotRod will run you down. Approches from the left, soundless so far.
