New features have been added and bugs have been fixed. To find out exactly
what changed, read the ChangeLog file in every directory. Each one is
different so be sure to check all ChangeLogs. Or, do a CVS differences on the
source specifying a date range like so: cvs diff -u3pN -D 1999-01-15 -D
BTW, the current snapshots have even more enhanced features in regards to help
speed up this issue. Try the most recent snapshot to see if you see different
results and report to this list.
