Dedication

Magicpoint 1.13a is dedicated to the memory of Dr. Jun-ichiro "itojun"
Hagino, who was known for his enormous contribution to the Internet and
the Open Source Software community. He was the developer of Magicpoint
from its infancy. Magicpoint could not exist without his devoted work.

* Support for new directive %tab 0 which can be used to apply a list of 
  directives to lines that start with a non-tab character.

* For security reasons, we have changed mgp so that directives that fork a

  order to process such directives.
