What's New in This Release:
Fixed a bug in detect_scsi() which caused tcdr to hang when only one cdrom device is present in the system (reported by Jan Henkins).
Modified the main menu texts to list "OGG" where appropriate.
ispell'd the documentation (was about time).
Added "Reporting bugs" section to the manual.
User interface improvement: utilized dialog's "--default-item" option for correct menuitem highlights - new function: ditm().
Debian package improvements: Debian menu system support and compliance to the Debian policy standards.
Fixed a few bugs in show_sw() (erroneous redirects) and added a .deb package listing (makes sense on a Debian system only of course).
