    VERSION 4 - JUNE 14 2021
    ------------------------

    A very minor release:

    - Dropped the timezone portion from the VIA kludge... for now.

    - Fix for the internal editor not updating the "highest" message counter
    when a new message is entered... it tested here fine?

    - Fix in Config-Advanced-Security/Miscellaneous when D'Bridge is used
    on consoles larger than 25 lines.

    - "Querying modem" in Config-COMM/Modem can be aborted if you believe there
    is a problem. By default, D'Bridge tries 3 times to query the modem in
    that setup screen.

    - Slightly reduced disk access in the Unpack/Toss cycle.

    - Adjustments to the ClockSync functionality. Note that this should not be
    configured unless you are using a "real DOS" computer and are not using
    anything else to sync the clock.

    - Tagline functionality defaults to disabled for new installations.

    - Minor code improvements.

    - Phased out the term "Setup Wizard". Its a program, not a magician.

    - Minor improvements to some of the F1-Help screens and user manual.

    - Colour change in the Installation screen.

    - More cowbell for G00R00.

    VERSION 4 - AUGUST 3 2022

    shut it down before installing this release.

    provided for IPV6 beyond basic configuration and testing.

    - Improvements for running D'Bridge on Windows 95, 98, ME, NT-4 and Windows
    2000 operating systems.

    - Several updates to the README file, software manual and F1-Help screens.

    VERSION 4 - SEPTEMBER 8 2022
    ----------------------------

    This minor release addresses issues with the BinkD subsystem.

    - Significant code improvements for BinkD staging or "move" operations,
    uncompressed mail packets for busy Hub systems or systems that forward
    mail to many downlinks.

    - Fix for an unusual problem with a downlink receiving a large compressed
    mail archive via BinkD, the file transfer gets aborted somehow, then the
    downlink immediately connects again and didn't receive that archive BUT
    received all of that archive's PKT files, so a leftover incomplete mail
    archive transfer remained on his system.

    - Compressed mail (XMAIL/Arcmail) flagged as Hold or Forced Hold will not
    be sent to the destination system in an outbound BinkD transaction.

    - Improvements to packet logging.

    VERSION 4 - APRIL 10 2023
    -------------------------

    A minor release:

    - Adds an option to Config-Echomail Areas to specify if an Echomail area is
    to be "hidden" from the internal message editor.

    If you answer YES to this new question, the Echomail area will NOT appear
    when you press A for Areas or ESC-Areas Information.

    Note that this does not hide the area from Areafix requests, but obviously
    the area will not be presented in Areafix requests from systems that do
    not meet the security and group criteria specified in Config-Packet/Mail.

    - Also adds the command HIDDEN ON/OFF to the DBUTIL CHANGE command, ie:

    C:\DB> DBUTIL CHANGE SECURITY 50 HIDDEN ON

    Will change all Echomail areas matching security level 50 to be
    hidden from the internal message editor.

    C:\DB> DBUTIL CHANGE GROUPACCESS C HIDDEN OFF

    Will change all Echomail areas matching group access C to not be
    hidden.

    C:\DB> DBUTIL CHANGE HIDDEN ON HIDDEN OFF

    You guessed it... All Echomail areas hidden will now be shown.

    - Bug fix for importing and exporting Local areas.

    - Bug fix when editing Local areas.

    - Bug fix for the F1-Help system.
