Release Notes: Lots of bugfixes and portability improvements were made. The "--scan-includes" option was added to distcc. This shows which headers distcc would send to the remote machine in pump mode, without actually compiling anything. This provides a simple interface to the include server. The "--disable-Werror" option was added to configure. This disables the use of gcc's -Werror option when building distcc, allowing compilation of distcc to succeed even if gcc issues warnings.

As a result, this release can be up to three times faster than earlier versions. It also contains many other new features and bugfixes.
