There's truly a mixed bag of changes in this release.  The major one is
the change to the syntax of the *subst config items.  If you're using
any of them, you'll need to update your config file.  Sorry about that,
but it's well worth it.

Here's the complete list of changes in this release...

version 8.1.2 (Mar 11, 2004):
	- better handling of client command (^Ec|) when user is bumped,
	  conserver is reconfigured, etc
	- added 'initsubst' option for 'initcmd' substitutions like
	  'devicesubst' and 'execsubst' - based on patch by Bill
	  Sommerfeld <sommerfeld@east.sun.com>
	- modified and added to *subst (initsubst, etc) syntax to allow
	  for flexibility and future enhancement
	- changed 'port' and 'portinc' minimums from 1 to 0 - it allows
	  more flexibility and helps with 0-based counting
	- removed unportable sys/cdefs.h from contrib/chat/chat.c -
	  patch by Bill Sommerfeld <sommerfeld@east.sun.com>
	- added --with-extmsgs configure switch to enable entertaining
	- marked various undocumented client commands as depreciated so
	  that they can be removed in a future version
	- added ability to "move" to a new console via '^Ec;' -
	  suggested by Christopher T. Beers <ctbeers@syr.edu>
	- added a dump of console information when -S is used twice -
	  suggested by Todd Stansell <todd@stansell.org>
