knocker-0.7.1 (24 May 2002):
  - Fixes a problem in the 0.7.0 version that was causing knocker not to build
    on non-Linux OS (FreeBSD, OpenBSD, HP-UX, and so on). 
  
knocker-0.7.0 (19 May 2002):
  - A new option to display the program output in a "no-fency" mode was added,
    and also the possibility to configure knocker with the also new --configure
    option was added.  
  - The colored output code has been improved and it is not causing the 
    background color to change anymore if knocker is executed in a X11 terminal. 
    The text is now correctly displayed on transparent background terminals too.
  - Two new options were added, these are --last-scan, to perform again the 
    last port scan, and --last-host, which puts the last scanned host as target.
  
knocker-0.6.6 (9 March 2002):
  - Fixed a serious bug that was preventing knocker to scan a number of ports
    greater than 1023.

    hostname couldn't be resolved.
