first release

Okay, first of all. Good work! Unlike roborunner by itself. Robojogger actually seems to work. On the other hand, the results don't seem to work. Mid-season or end of running. It just never shows up as completed. Not sure what the problem is here.

It doesn't feel considerably faster then RoboResearch. But I haven't tested them head to head or anything. It might be because RoboResearch shows the progress on the UI itself (I understand how this might not be possible in RoboJogger, at least on a per turn basis).

Other Notes:

I notice it uses a different look and feel. Usually people expect programs to use their system look at feel. You can achieve this in java by using UIManager.setLookAndFeel(UIManager.getSystemLookAndFeelClassName()); This just goes to making the program feel more 'comfortable' to people who use it.

If you are releasing robocode with it, you could 'cut down' the robocode version included to reduce the size of the zip. It doesn't need a compiler, javadoc, rumble, templates, sample bots, etc. You also seem to have multiple copies of robocode in there as well. One in template, one in robocode_jars.

On the other hand, you may want to include a few default challenge files. Like say the ones RoboResearch has. This will help if someone doesn't have RoboResearch already, and/or doesn't know how to create a challenge file.
