- Highlight stable discs
Discs which are stable, i.e. can not be flipped by any sequence of moves,
are left intact while mutable discs become half transparent for 2 seconds.
The discs that are marked as stable are guaranteed to be stable, but
in some positions some stable discs might be shown as mutable.
The reason for this is that deciding the stability status of all discs
leads to long searches.
- Force computer to move
If WZebra takes too long deciding on its move,
you can interrupt its thinking and force it to
play the best move it has found so far.
