 Sorry, I mean from 2.03 to 2.04.
  Also, changes include:
  * pw_phonemes.c (pw_phonemes): Allow one or more capital letters
  	and one or more digits in the generated passwords.
  	(Addresses Debian Bug: #182595)
  * pwgen.1: Explain that human-memorable passwords are vulnerable
  	to off-line brute force attacks.  (Addresses Debian Bug:
  * pwgen.c, pwgen.h, pw_rand.c, pwgen.1: Make -A and -0 aliases to
  	--no-capitalize and --no-numerals, and make those options
  	work when --secure is specified.
  * pwgen.c, pwgen.h, pw_rand.c, pw_phonemes.c, pwgen.c: Add support
  	for the --symbols/-y option, which adds special characters
  	to the generated password.  (Addresses Debian Bug: #154561)
  * pwgen.c: Add -H, --sha1 option, to allow computing reproducible
  	passwords, given a known file, and a known seed.
  	(ie: pwgen -H ~/ gives me
  	a list of possibles passwords for my pop3 account, and I can
  	ask this list again and again).   Feature suggested and
  	implemented by Olivier Guerrier <>.
  * Fix obvious spelling typo in pwgen.1.  (Addresses Debian Bug
