      Version 1.0 of NCSA Mosaic for the X Window System, a networked
      information systems and World Wide Web browser, is hereby released:

      file://ftp.ncsa.uiuc.edu/Mosaic/xmosaic-source/xmosaic-1.0.tar.Z
      .../xmosaic-binaries/xmosaic-sun.Z
      .../xmosaic-binaries/xmosaic-sgi.Z
      .../xmosaic-binaries/xmosaic-ibm.Z
      .../xmosaic-binaries/xmosaic-dec.Z
      .../xmosaic-binaries/xmosaic-alpha.Z
      .../xmosaic-diffs/xmosaic-0.13-1.0-diffs.Z

      Changes since beta version 0.13 include:

      o Added new resource, gethostbynameIsEvil, for Sun's that
      coredump when gethostbyname() is called to try to find out what
      their own names are. (Command-line flag is -ghbnie.)
      o Explicitly pop down all dialog boxes when document view
      window is closed, for window managers too dull to do so
      themselves.
      o Better visited anchor color for non-SGI's.
      o Added .hqx and .uu to list of file extensions handled like .tar files.
      o Added 'Clear' button to Open box, to allow more convenient
      cut-n-paste entries of URL's.
      o New resource 'autoPlaceWindows'; if set to False, new document
      view windows will not be automatically positioned by the
      program itself (but it's still up to your window manager just how
      they're placed).
      o Command-line flags -i and -iconic now have desired effect (new
      resource initialWindowIconic can also be used).
      o Gif-reading code is a little more bulletproof.
      o Obscure infinite loop triggered by extra space in IMG tag fixed.
      o Eliminated nonintuitive error message when image can't be read
      (inlined NCSA bitmap is indication enough that something's not
      right for authors, and readers can't do anything about bad images
      in any case).
      o Obscure parsing bug (for constructs like <ADDRESS><A
      HREF=...>text<A></ADDRESS>) fixed.
      o Fixed mysterious stupid coredump that only hits Suns.
      o Fixed stupid coredump on URL's like '://cbl.leeds.ac.uk/'.
      o Fixed buglet in handling rlogin URL's.
      o New support for Solaris/SYSVR4 (courtesy
      dana@...).
      o Better support for HP-UX 8.x and 9.x (courtesy
      johns@...).
      o Better support for NeXT (courtesy scott@...).
      o Some miscellaneous portability fixes (courtesy
      bingle@...).
      o Miscellaneous bug fixes and cleanups.

      Comments, questions, and bug reports should be directed to
      mosaic-x@.... Thanks in advance for any feedback you can
      provide.

      Cheers,
      Marc & Eric
