This release doesn't have traditional bug fixes, but it does have
improvements that fix things that I consider bugs (so, minor bug fixes).
It also adds a new "MOTD" feature, for displaying messages when
users attach to a console.

Here are the complete list of changes...

version 8.0.2 (Oct 5, 2003):
	- reworked the i/o calls to better buffer data
	- added console 'motd' option for holding a "message of the
	  day", displayed to the client on attachment to console -
	  suggested by Toby Gerhart <toby.gerhart@eds.com>
	- added ^Ecm client command for displaying MOTD and integrated
	  it into the client console attachment sequence
	- now unallocate client lists when forking new child conserver
	- changed strdup() to local StrDup() so dmalloc can gracefully
	  track changes
	- added a ^Ec; sequence to let client signal server when it's
	  ready to see console data, otherwise a chatty console can
	  cause the login sequence to fail and you can never attach to
	  the console
