LYNX-DEV v2.7 bug fix update

Subject: LYNX-DEV v2.7 bug fix update
Date: Thu, 20 Mar 1997 15:26:22 -0500 (EST)

        An update of is available in:

* Tweaked the protection against URLs directed to port 19 or port 25 so
  that it can't be circumvented via lead zeros in the port numbers. - FM
* Changed the compilation default so as not to send From MIME headers to
  http or https servers.  The default can still be changed via lynx.cfg.
  Replaced the -nofrom disabling switch to a -from switch for toggling
  the compilation or configuration default.  Sending the From header
  has become widely regarded as an invasion of privacy risky, particulary
  in conjunction with cookie support. - FM
* Corrected a typo in the lynx.cfg comments concerning TRUSTED_LYNXCGI
  rules. - KW
