 +Commit number 21000!
 +
 +=== Archetypes ===
 +  * Add white and black leather cloaks as archetypes so that they can be created via formulae (r20943)
 +  * New archetype, sea_route (20965)
 +      * Sea routes are indistinguishable from normal sea tiles, except for the arch name
 +      * This helps automated travel objects (i.e., ships) distinguish between sea routes and plain old sea tiles
 +
 +=== GTKv2 Client ===
 +  * Avoid unnecessary calls to draw_lists(),​ this speeds up inventory redraw when picking up and dropping many items (r20926)
 +  * Improvements for inventory display and handling (r20971 - r20976, r20980)
 +

 +  * The travel cart will now always print/​display a message when stopping (r10962)
 +  * The travel cart now costs 100 platinum (r20963)

 +  * Improve handling of formula check to handle cauldron and tool differences (r20946)

 +  * Changes with food calculations(r20956)
 +    * Dragons players are now subject to cursed food effects ​
 +  * Slow players down if they eat too much (r20984)
 +    * Players who consume food that would go over the max 999, will now have short (about 1minute) movement and combat penalty - watch for the message "​Eating the food ration makes you very full. You feel yourself moving much slower."​
 +    * When the affect is over - watch for the messages "You feel like you're moving faster."​ and "You feel your digestion slowing down."
 +  * Clarify stat change messages from effects like character death or depletion attacks or restored from Potions of Life or consuming a stat potion (r20985)
