There have been a lot of changes in cvs over the last while and I'm wondering if we should make a release soon. The releases page on sf.net only has releases for 0.16.5 and older (released August 5, 2002!). Since glib is gone from current cvs the reason for keeping 0.16 around is gone too. There are a few things I would like to fix before a release is made, but those should be done relatively easily (see below). What does everyone think?

btw - making releases can only be done by project admins, not developers right? I've been reading the sf.net docs and can't really figure out how a release is done.

Things I'd like to do (and should be easy):

1. make field progression work backwards (it already works forwards)
2. fix the on-screen handling of continuous and word wrapped fields.
   the fields are already sent back to the iSeries correctly thanks to
   Marc-Antione's work.  but the on-screen part doesn't work right
3. fix the weird border problems with windows.  I can't tell if the bug
   I'm seeing is in x5250 or lib5250, but sometimes my windows get drawn
   with the border characters all over the place.
