    Release Notes: The configuration file has been changed to use the AppConfig module. New parameters have been added to the nau.conf file. This release can use the %WINDIR% variable in the netlogon.bat script. It can send email using an SMTP server (with authentication). Global variables have been removed. Temporary files are now created using the File::Temp module (to avoid race conditions). This release has command line options, including a help message when using the "-h" option.

        Release Notes: A function was added to retrieve the Symantec DAT file's last modification date instead of parsing it from the HTML. This allows the program to check for updates that are released more then once a day. The code was rewritten to remove some global variables. The NAU client is not necessary anymore, since the Intelligent File Updater can be used with the "\q" option, which causes the update to happen without requiring user interaction with a dialog box. The netlogon.bat script was updated as well.
