Version 1.4 patchlevel 2001/12/26 of NSBD

Release Notes: Inclusion of a small stand-alone C program called breloc that can relocate binary packages so the packages can be installed at a location of the user's choice. The binary packages just have to be configured with a "prefix" that has a sufficient number of trailing slashes to accomodate the user's chosen location.

    Other releases

    Release Notes: A new Cygwin binary and extra support for handling the '.exe' extension in Cygwin, a port to Mac OS X (although no binary is yet included), conversion to using "mktclapp" to generate standalone binaries so TCL plus patches are no longer needed, and new options to easily extract information from the database of installed files.

      Release Notes: This announcement has been made just to fix the patchlevel date which had somehow been set to 2001/12/26 in the last announcement rather than 2000/12/26.
