This release contains many bugfixes.  There is one important change which
is not really a bugfix: !, [[, { and } are reserved words now.  This means
no noticeable change in case of ! but the others should now be delimited
from the adjacent words.  For example {echo} used to work but now one has
to use { echo } instead.  Also [[-z $foo]] worked before to check wether
$foo is empty but now [[ -z $foo ]] must be used.  I hope that it will not
break many scripts.

I also updated the Etc/CONTRIBUTORS file.  Comments about that are
welcome.

The texinfo manual is now almost up-to-date.  It still does not contains
the above mentioned reserved word change.  Also I made the description of
the grammar of compound commands in zshmisc.man more precise which is not
yet refrected in the texinfo documentation.

I'm going to a summer scholl now and I'll not read E-mail until thursday
evening.

The network card of our primary nameserver stopped working last night (in
fact that happened with three different SUN machines here).  The secondary
nameservers should still work.  Unfortunately all the three system
administrators will be away until thursday.  Just in case the symbolic
address does not work, the numeric IP address of the zsh ftp site is
157.181.6.125.  You may also try the mirror sites.

See the ChangeLog for the full list of the changes.

The new release can be found on the following anonymous ftp sites.  The
first is the official archive site.  The rest are mirror sites which are
kept frequently up to date.  The sites maked with a star may mirror
ftp.math.gatech.edu instead of the primary site.
