Release Notes: Major changes are CDF file parsing, indirect magic, and overhaul in MIME and ASCII encoding handling. The file ~/.magic is now handled in addition to the default magic file, not instead of it. A non-zero exit code is now emitted on errors on any file, not just the last processed file. Magic definitions were improved and expanded.
