I have a draft release page (which I'll revise once more), in

It links to 2-8, which links to 2.7.2

probably. (as well as fixing an equal number of problems made by Fote - but
those are mainly in areas dealing with portability/maintainability).

I've seen 2-3 separate reports of core dumps over the past month which I
cannot reproduce.  There were 3-4 which gave me enough clues to add some
checks (e.g., for null pointers), and I've put in fixes for those.  But I
cannot say how many more there are (the rate of reporting is all that I
have to go on).

But this is also a problem with the older versions - once you know where
the problems are, it's simple to break the program.
