Dear FIM users,

I am happy to announce that (finally!) I released fim-0.3 and fim-0.4-beta.

fim-0.3 introduces fixes collected after version 0.3-beta-prerelease, and 
should be rather stable, though obsoleted by the current (also rather stable) 
0.4 candidate, that is: and fim-0.4-beta.

I recommend trying fim-0.4-beta and providing me feedback on eventual bugs.
This version brings many, many improvements to the old fim-0.3-beta-prerelease 

Tarballs available at http://download.savannah.gnu.org/releases/fbi-improved/

Summarized NEWS of the two releases:
