I've made a long-overdue updated version (1.2) of the Cons FAQ available:

I welcome any and all corrections, additions, suggestions, etc.

For those who are interested, a list of the accumulated changes in this
version is appended below.



--  Updated version number to 1.2.
--  Explain that stable/development version numbering begins with 2.0.
    Fix typos.
--  Update version numbers, blank place-holder for the date.
--  Fix another typo:  "ccc" => "cc" in an example.
--  Add XXX at a few points where we need to update C/C++ answers.
    Rework the file globbing answer for Cons 2.1.2 and remove the
    file globbing comments.
--  Minor change.  Redo the base/developer package question to account
    for the new packaging changes.  Linux => GNU/Linux.
