12looks as if v1.20 is a good version. I have had a <I>lot</I> of
13e-mails - maybe 20 or 30 - today but not one contained a major bug
14report. One user is having trouble getting Debian and Mondo to play
15nicely (gee, there's a shock) but apart from that, v1.20 looks really good.</FONT></FONT></FONT></P>

27v1.20 is the first of the 1.2x stable branch. I am currently working

35not remotely sleepy. Ugh. Flying is like doing heroin: the high is
36great but it's expensive as heck and you feel like the wrath of God
37afterwards. Anyway, I typed 'nuke' instead of 'expert' - quite a typo
38- and then I wondered why my PC was counting down. 10... 9... 8... Oh
