Version 4.6.3 - March 2006, by Bruce Korb

Version 4.6 - October 2005, by Bruce Korb

* Incorporate new Japanese translation
* Release last alpha release (4.5.3) as full release
  (i.e. there are no source changes since then.)


Version 4.5.3 - September 2005, by Bruce Korb

* Fix up installation directory references
* one new and one updated traslation
* libtool 1.5.20

Version 4.3.79 - April 2005, by Bruce Korb

* rewrote the temporary file handling in unshar to avoid both a theoretical
  timing hole (hitting it requires cooperation) and a buffer overrun
  attack (a file name exceeding 1K).
* new translations and updates.  They are all now missing two messages:
  "allocate file name buffer" and "allocate file buffer".  *sigh*.
