This is primarily an overdue bug-fixing release designed to get
the number of outstanding bug reports down to a reasonable
number. A brief summary of the major changes follows:

Released on: 5 December 2003.

- Runtime fixes:
    - Use a per-user directory for storing the extracted contents
      files. This avoids problems when multiple users share /tmp
      and use scrollkeeper.
    - Do XInclude processing on documents before extracting
    - By default, do not use the network to retrieve required DTDs.
        - Can be changed using the '-n' parameter to
          scrollkeeper-install and friends.
    - Do not segfault if an OMF file is invalid.

- Build fixes:
    - Install various package documentation files.
    - Tidy up the build process a little bit and fix some
      portability bugs.
    - Update included gettext code.
    - Build fixes for specific platforms (Solaris and *BSD systems).
    - Detect installed version of the DocBook DTD at build time.
    - Allow the location of system XML catalog to be specified.
        - see the --with-xml-catalog flag.
    - Install locale-specific program files correctly (i.e.
    - Allow scrollkeeper data directory to be customised
        - see the --with-partial-db-dir flag.
    - Upgrade supplied gettext and automake versions.

- Miscellaneous:
    - Correctly register translated versions of documents by
      considering their category, rather than their titles.
    - Don't leak file descriptors when updating the database. This
      fixes resource starvation problems on some systems.
    - Fix some memory leaks.
    - Should now work with IPv6-enabled systems.
    - When using a non-default prefix, the scrollkeeper log files
      are updated correctly.
    - Many Sourceforge bug tracker bugs fixed and all outstanding
      patches in the patch tracker evaluated and applied if
