The exclamation points are due to the miraculous amount of work I've been
able to accomplish for this release :)  I was feeling horrible yesterday
evening and this morning, so I called off work.  I slept in really late, then
had the most productive code-day I've had in years.  Ironic that I can't do
that at work, isn't it?  I need an Alan Cox-style job ;->

Anyway, it can be found at the usual places:

And here's a quick list of everything done:

- All outstanding bugs reported since the 0.15.5 release have been fixed -
  possibly with the exception of the xterm-size-change-refresh bug (could
  someone report whether or not my changes fixed that?).
- Implemented a few 'optional' 5250 features - which shouldn't affect the
  way it behaves according to the user, but should affect the way it behaves
  according to the host.  One of these may fix some binary data display
- Some code cleanup.
- Full HTML documentation of the lib5250 API can be found in the 'doc'
  subdirectory of the tarball.  This is thanks to Robodoc.  Almost all
  functions and structures have had the documenting comments added to them
  (thanks to sed & perl), most of them have at least a short blurb
  describing what the function does.  I'll document constants and global
  variables (if there are any left :( ) at a later date.
- Probably introduced a few minor bugs, please report if you find one.  Some
  semantics of how the emulator enters/leaves inhibited state were changed,
  as well as the newly-implemented orders may be culprits.  That being said,
  it works as far as I can tell.

On the negative side, you will probably need Robodoc installed if you modify
source and then try to do a 'make dist' or 'make distcheck'.  I have no idea
how many people would use that, though.
