 +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)

 +    * 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)
