For release 0.8.0:
        - added JScheme completer. Provided by Samer Abdallah
	- added support for Getline (Bernhard)
        - added support for WIN32	

For release 0.7.3:
	- don't add history automatically for each line. Provided by Brian Clapper
	- removed 1024-byte limitation (useful for long multiline input)

For release 0.7.2:
	- no functionality changes; only modified build process a bit
 	  for first libreadline-java release on sourceforge (Henner)

For release 0.7.1:
       (provided by Henner Zeller <H.Zeller@acm.org>)
	- provide method hasTerminal() to check, if we are run from a terminal
          (calls isatty())
        - make build process work on Solaris
        - provide RPM-spec file

For release 0.7.0:
	- bugfix: setCompleter(null) crashed the virtual machine. Now, it sets
	  the completer back to default behaviour (filename completion)
	- native functions added:
	  o cleanupReadlineImpl() does a reset of the readline lib and the
	    terminal. Exported as 'void cleanup()' to the java user.
	  o getLineBufferImpl() returns the current line buffer. This is
	    usually needed within completers to access the _full_ line (the
	    completer only gets the last word). Exported as
	    'String getLineBuffer()' to the java user.
	- documentation: complete example for ReadlineCompleter interface;
	  better indented example for Readline. Added cleanup() in the example.
	- declare the 'UnsatisfiedLinkError' in the load() method for
	  documentation purposes.
	(all changes provided by Henner Zeller <H.Zeller@acm.org>)
	- added note about Debian-packages in README
	- new description on how to make Jython work with JavaReadline
	(copied from a posting of Steve Cohen <SteveC@ignitesports.com> to
	jython-users@lists.sourceforge.net)
	
For release 0.6.1:
        - bugfix: fallback-solution did not throw EOFException
