 2006-04-09  Jarkko Hietaniemi  <jhi@Chicxulub.local>
 	* Try to underline, highlight, and explain the fact that
 	  String::Approx does not do a good job for comparing
 	  strings "with fuzz", use the Levenshtein et al for that.
 	* aindex() might return "too early" indices if either the pattern
 	  or the text contain repetitive characters, this seems to be a
 	  tricky defect to fix and somewhat conflicting with our model
 	  (return "as early as possible" matches, just like regular
 	  expressions) (to get "as late as possible" matches one would
 	  basically have to keep retrying at later indices until one
 	  fails), so for now only document this known problem.
 	  The same goes for aslice().
 	* [INTERNAL] use Test::More (not 100% yet)
 	* [INTERNAL] apse.c: do not reset text_position_range in apse_reset
 	  (thanks to Helmut Jarausch)
 	* [INTERNAL] apse.c: add #include <assert.h>.
 	* [INTERNAL] apse.c: small signed/unsigned cleanups.
 	* Released as 3.26.
