Some people are having trouble running X Mosaic 0.5 on Suns running
X11R5.  The problem is apparently that we accidentally dynamically
linked in the X libraries but statically linked the Motif library, so
if you're running R5 on a Sun the Motif library is apparently being
thrown for a loop when it gets hooked up with the R5 libraries and
isn't expecting it.  In the future, all Sun X libraries will be
statically linked.

In the meantime, downgrade your Suns to X11R4 :-).

0.6 oughta be out real soon now; a list of things changed as of this
moment follows...

History window now shows both 'where you've been' and
  'where you can go'.
Previously visited nodes are colored differently, a la Midaswww;
  this global history is automatically persistent across sessions.
New resources for customization, including:
  Show URLs instead of Document Titles.
  Customize window per document feature.
  Optionally have pointer and focus warp to keyword entry field
    when you reach a searchable node.
  Optionally turn off global history mechanism.
Button2 can now activate anchors; forces a new window
  to open (as with Window Per Document feature).
Going from a document necessarily wider than the window
  (e.g. preformatted text) to a normal document will now
  get rid of the horizontal spacebar and reformat properly.
Addition of Whine option under Help.
Addition of Go To and Go To Local options under Navigate.
<listing> is now recognized.
Numeric character references (e.g. &#60;) are now handled.
Anchors without href's aren't colored anymore.
Memory leak in document reformatting nailed.
Layout glitches fixed.
Better help.
Other misc bugfixes and cleanups.
