The first 2004 release is available...happy new year!  There are a
couple of slight changes, cleanups, etc, and one big change with the
client-server protocol.  The good news is I was able to send files via
xmodem and zmodem from the client to the console using the ^Ec| syntax,
which failed before the protocol change.  I've also enhanced the telnet
protocol code and I believe it will now operate properly with standard
telnet ports.

I hope everyone enjoys the new code and finds that it fixes any problems
you might have seen.  If not, please let me know what's wrong!

version 8.1.0 (Jan 18, 2004):
	- fixes for HP-UX compilation - patch by Petter Reinholdtsen
	- fixes for compilation under various operating systems -
	  patch by Albert Chin <conserver-users@mlists.thewrittenword.com>
	- added a 'protocol' option for either 'telnet' or 'raw' socket
	  communication - also reflected in -i output
	- changed the client/server protocol to use 0xff as a command
	  character for sending control commands - similiar to the
	  telnet protocol - improves the ^Ec| interaction
	- client -E option now disables ssl encryption attempts, useful
	  for broken SSL environents - suggested by Graydon Dodson
	- bad error message connecting non-ssl client with ssl-required
	  server - reported by Graydon Dodson <grdodson@lexmark.com>
	- added note about pam configuration to conserver.passwd.man -
	  suggested by Erik Sjolund <erik.sjolund@sbc.su.se>
	- improved telnet protocol option handling such that connections
	  to standard telnet ports should work properly
