    Release Notes: Bugfixes and magic improvements were made. Replacement functions for strcasestr() and fmtcheck() were added for systems missing them. A "-E" option was added to exit on filesystem errors. A "--apple" option that outputs the file type and creator code as used by older MacOS versions was added. A "clear" keyword was added to the magic syntax, and the behavior of "default" was changed to make it more useful. Sane handling of empty and one byte files was improved.
