New versions of the DELTA programs for MS-DOS are now available by anonymous
ftp from the following Internet hosts.        (directory: /pub/software/delta/msdos)        (directory: /pub/delta/msdos)   (directory: /delta/msdos)

The Internet distribution package consists of text files *.1st and
self-expanding files *.exe. Download.1st contains this information about
downloading the files, changes.1st contains the revision history of the
programs, and delta.1st describes the procedure for installing the programs on
an MS-DOS computer. The files must be transmitted in binary mode, set by the
ftp command `binary'. (Failure to do so will result in the error message
`HeaderC Error' when the .exe files are run.)

Place the files in the directory C:\DELTA on your MS-DOS computer. Then follow
the installation procedure described in delta.1st, but omit the XCOPY command.

The date of this release is 28 May 1993. The changes from the previous
release (12 May 1993) are as follows.


Version 2.08, 28 May 1993. A bug in the handling of key states for unordered
multistate characters was fixed. Error messages for the KEY STATES directive
were improved.


Version 3.05, 28 May 1993. A bug in retrieving previous commands was fixed.

Only the files delta1 at .exe and delta2 at .exe have been changed.
