Version 7.1.1 has a couple of bug fixes and one functional change: file
parsing.  Here's the blurb from the INSTALL file warning folks about

        - Both conserver.passwd and conserver.cf file parsing behaves
          the same now.  Both use leading whitespace as a continuation
          line indicator - if you have leading whitespace on a line
          (aside from comments) you probably should remove it.

And, of course, here is the full list of changes...

version 7.1.1 (Aug 4, 2001):
        - Now using getlogin() for real username info - suggested by
          Dave Stuit <djs@gnac.com>
        - gethostbyname() failure for a console now doesn't cause a
          shutdown - reported by Todd Stansell <todd@stansell.org>
        - Shutdown via client -q/-Q fixed (broken in 7.1.0 because of
          master process fork() code)
        - Password file parsing fixed to allow for empty passwords -
          allowing users to access conserver without a password prompt
        - Both the password and configuration files no longer have
          line length limitations, they now support comments (`#' lines),
          and lines with leading whitespace are continuations of
          previous lines
        - Client hostname/ip sometimes not printed - reported by Todd
          Stansell <todd@stansell.org>
