I traded some e-mails with Stephen Ryder during the Beta phase of the 2.0 upgrade and noted that the previous versions of the 4x4 puzzles were often finished in one pass or less through the clues (some clues not needed, or redundant), but that no longer seemed to be the case. I would quote his reply, but apparently my e-mail site has gone down, but essentially the response was that all the new puzzles have been designed to avoid those overly simple cases, to eliminate most redundant clues, and require the clues to depend on building on others, so that one pass through won't result in the puzzle being done (unless you have a memory where you can recall previous read clues without having to reread them and build on them as you go).
