What's New in This Release:
Fixes were made for dictionary navigation.
Article auto-open cleanups were done.
A Greek Unicode mapping was added; it uses the CP1253 charset and you have to use a CP1253 font instead of CP1251, and CP1253 is expected from the keyboard.
A WINS version was added to the distribution.
