 Log Message:
 Update to 20090510 snapshot.
   + There is no behavioral difference from the last snapshot.  If your
     present installation is working, there's no need to update it.
     However, Richard Downing (thanks Richard!) had pointed out that the
     Linux binaries I was providing were a 64-bit application and therefore
     wouldn't work on 32-bit machines.  The portability problems with the
     Linux binaries were actually a lot worse than that.  A temporary Linux
     installer was posted in March (without any source changes), so even if
     you have installed the Linux binaries they may have worked fine for
     you.  At any rate, I've now changed the build-procedure for when I
     snapshot the Linux binaries in order to make them much more portable.
     I believe they should work on any 32-bit or 64-bit 'x86 Linux
     distribution which is circa Fedora Core 4 or later.
   + Some additional hints for getting GUItenMark to work on Windows Vista
     have been added to the download page, courtesy of a reader known only
     as 'wendl' (thanks, wendl!).
 02/16/09.  The Mac OS X version is now believed to be fully working on Mac
 OS X 10.5 (PPC and Intel), 10.4 (PPC and Intel), and 10.3 (PPC, of
 course!), though I only have a subset of these systems on which to test.
 06/01/08.  Another pot-pourri:
   + The Mac OS X installer download should now work fully on Mac OS X 10.5
     (though tested only on Intel), meaning that GUItenMark works on that
     platform.  On Mac OS X prior to 10.5, only the command-line programs (
     GutenMark and GutenSplit) are expected to work.
   + Jason Pollock's instructions for compiling GutenMark and GutenSplit for
     iPhone are now included on the download page.
   + GUItenMark now provides a GUI front-end for GutenSplit (in addition to
     its continued support for GutenMark).
   + Fixed some portability issues in the Linux binary download.
     (Specifically, I found that even if the prerequisite wxWindows 2.8 was
     installed on the target machine, GUItenMark would still not work if the
     wxWidgets had been compiled with Unicode support, because the
     shared-library names would be different from what was expected.  This
     happened with Fedora 9, for example.  And there are other wxWidgets
     compilation flags that could cause the same problem.)  The fix was to
     compile the Linux version of the GUItenMark program so that it is
     statically linked to wxWidgets, thus removing the requirement that
     wxWidgets be installed on the target computer at all.  On the other
     hand, I now see that the Linux version of the program has lots of other
     requirements that you may or may not need to install.  Oh, well!
 05/28/08.  GUItenMark now compiles and works for Mac OS X, but so far I'm
 only able to build it for Mac OS X 10.5, so I haven't yet gone through the
 hassle of adding it to the binary download for Mac OS X.  However, it is
 quite easy to build following the instructions on the download page.  Also,
 Jason Pollock <> has sent some additional changes and
 instructions for compiling for the iPhone, but I've not yet had a chance to
 try them or incorporate them here.  Soon, I hope.
 05/26/08.  A miscellaneous pot-pourri of changes:
   + I'm still working on Mac OS X support, because it has turned out to be
     harder than I thought.  (For some reason I'm not yet clear on,
     GUItenMark simply doesn't work on Mac OS X.)  Nevertheless, there is
     now a Mac OS X installation package on the download page, along with
     instructions for using it, and for compiling.  The installation package
     makes installing GutenMark and GutenSplit much easier on the Mac, even
     though the program the package purports to provide (GUItenMark) doesn't
     work yet.
   + By default, GUItenMark now defaults to using the desktop as the
     location to find input files and to create output files.  This seems
     much more logical and useful than the obscure directories it defaulted
     to previously.
   + Jason Pollock <> (thanks, Jason!) has sent in
     greatly-reworked version of GutenSplit, with several options that give
     you some more flexibility in splitting on different levels of headers,
     and/or in omitting the table of contents.
   + Jason has also suggested some mods that allow cross-compiling GutenMark
     (from a Mac), so that it runs on an iPhone.  I have not personally
     tried this, and I'll trust Jason to let me know if the changes are to
     his satisfaction.
 05/09/08.  Well, Mac OS X support is back (due to the addition of Mac OS X
 support to the IMCROSS development system which I am using to create
 Windows binaries), but untested, so I won't provide binaries just yet.
 More on this later.
 04/23/08.  Made the installer programs a little smaller, by removing the
 Linux-only files from the Windows installer, and vice-versa.
 04/22/08.  Reorganized how the installers are created, to avoid overwriting
 some directories that are useful to me.  Also, the installer isn't built
 automatically any longer (you have to do 'make snapshot').  But I don't
 suppose either of those things is of interest to anyone but me.
 04/21/08.  Big doings are transpiring!
 |The GUItenMark graphical front-end program is now fully working on both  |
 |Windows and Linux 'x86, and seems to work quite well.  Admittedly, I've  |
 |tested only Windows XP, SuSE 10.0, and Fedora Core 5.                    |
 |                                                                         |
 |Linux and Win32 installer programs are now available.                    |
 |                                                                         |
 |The website has been completely revamped to replace all of the outmoded  |
 |download, installation, and compilation instructions, and to provide the |
 |necessary new instructions pertaining to GUI front-end and installer     |
 |programs.                                                                |
 |                                                                         |
 |Direct support for Linux PPC, Mac OS X, FreeBSD, and NetBSD has now been |
 |discontinued.  The software (or at least, GutenMark) can presumably still|
 |be built for these platforms, but I simply don't have the time or        |
 |resources that allow me to do it myself.  I doubt this will be much loss |
 |to anybody, since it has been years since I've updated the binaries for  |
 |those platforms anyhow.                                                  |
 04/20/08.  The GutenMark program itself has had the groundwork for several
 experimental improvements laid, but the changes haven't resulted yet in any
 quality changes.   More importantly, there is now a GUI front-end for
 GutenMark, cleverly called GUItenMark, for both Linux and Windows.  There
 are a couple of improvements I'd like to make in this program, and a couple
 of bug-fixes for the Windows version of the program, but it's basically
 working and seems very useful.  At any rate, even I admit that it's
 enormously easier to use than the GutenMark command-line program.  I don't
 want to generally send it out into the world until I make the mentioned
 changes, test it on more computers (so far I've only tried it on SuSE Linux
 10.0 and Windows XP Home), have an installer program, and get the web-page
 verbiage all fixed up.  However you, loyal reader, can try it out now:
  1. Download  This is the complete package, and
     there's nothing else to download unless you want the source code as
     well!  But it is 13.4 Mbytes.
  2. For Windows, unzip this file in "C:\Program Files\", thus creating the
     directory "C:\Program Files\GutenMark".  For Linux, unzip it in your
     home directory, thus creating "~/GutenMark", and rename it to "~
  3. Left-click on your desktop to create an icon for the application
     program:  either "C:\Program Files\GutenMark\binary\GUItenMark.exe"
     (Windows) or else "~/.GutenMark/binary/GUItenMark" (Linux).
  4. Click the icon with your mouse.
  5. Operation of the program should be pretty darned self-explanatory, and
     it had better be since I haven't written any instructions for it yet.
     If not, let me know.
 02/02/08.  A lot of explanation has been added on the usage page about
 LaTeX, and particularly about using LaTeX on Windows.  Note also that
 essentially all of the pre-processed etexts have been recently corrected or
 improved in some way.  (Such changes are normally described on their own
 "What's New" page rather than being described on this software-change
 03/20/04.  Fixed PR #114.  This seemingly hasn't caused anybody a problem,
 but ....  In conjunction with this, the "prefatory" area is no longer in a
 smaller font size, except for the message that GutenMark itself adds.
 02/21/04.  Fixed PR #113, which caused HTML headers to be omitted in some
 files created by GutenSplit.
 01/21/04.  A new utility program called GutenSplit has been added; this
 program splits the HTML files created by GutenMark into smaller HTML files,
 adding a table of contents, and links between all of the small HTML files.
 The Makefiles have also been modified so that the various "GutenUtilities"
 (including GutenSplit) are automatically built when GutenMark is built;
 previously, this was a separate, manual build.  Also, if a cross-compiler
 version of MinGW is installed on Linux, then a Linux build tries to create
 not only the Linux versions of the executables, but also Win32 versions as
 01/05/03.  LaTeX:  Fixed the incorrect mdash construct I've been using all
 this time!  (I used "--" at first, and then later decided that "----"
 looked better.  However, since neither of these is the correct LaTeX
 construct, namely "---", there were problems with them being arbitrarily
 broken across lines.  Therefore, I added an \mbox to correct this problem,
 and then a \linebreak to correct problems with the \mbox, and then ....).
 12/28/02.  LaTeX:  Supplied a workaround for an importing bug in LyX 1.2
 (PR#110, spurious linefeeds inserted when importing a LaTeX
 command-sequence of the form "\ \ ").
 12/25/02.  LaTeX:  Messages about the text having been converted by
 GutenMark, the software version, and what-not have been moved from the
 "Prefatory Materials" to a copyright-area on the back-side of the
 title-page.  Also, added a trick to fool LyX into correctly importing the
 date change from 12/23.  Added the "--ron" command-line switch to group
 together various settings that
 I personally find useful.
 12/23/02.  LaTeX:  Fixed PR#109 (hyphenation and linebreak problems with
 mdashes).  Also, removed the date which had appeared on the title page.
 12/16/02.  Fixed PR#108 (inability to compile in NetBSD).
 11/24/02.  The source tarball has been corrected to contain the correct
 html file for the regression test.  More slight improvements were made do
 special.words.gz.  Added "Hon." to the list of honorifics.
 11/22/02.  This version has lots of improvements that--in my view, at
 least--make producing LaTeX much easier, along with a  few other
 miscellaneous changes:  Corrected the email address displayed by the
 software.  Added the word "The" to special.words.gz.  Fixed the bulk of the
 problems (but probably not all) associated with too-long spaces following
 honorifics and quotes in LaTeX.  Fixed smart single-quotes, so as not to be
 fooled by words like 'em, 'til, etc.  Fixed smart single-quotes and smart
 double-quotes to correctly treat cases like this:
     ... and so I says to him"--he paused briefly--"why don't you stop ...
 Hopefully, fixed the missing quotes in LaTeX chapter names.  Mdashes in
 LaTeX are now enclosed in LaTeX \mbox{}, to avoid breaking them across
 lines; also, the --mdash-size switch has been added to allow longer (or
 shorter) mdashes.  The LaTeX default is now \raggedbottom.  Now use LaTeX "
 \ " everywhere that "~" had been used previously (allowing latex to much
 more easily space shorter lines).
 08/26/02.  Fixed PR#99, making the 20020809 ALL-CAPS turnoff a little more
 08/25/02.  A few LaTeX conveniences were added, mainly to eliminate manual
 post-corrections:  For page headings, the cases of the right- and
 left-headings are matched; i.e., if one of them is all-caps then the other
 one is forced to be all-caps also.  Hard-spaces in chapter headings have
 been eliminated.  When the chapter heading is something like "CHAPTER IV.
 THE SEARCH FOR PEACE", the page heading now only shows "THE SEARCH FOR
 PEACE" and eliminates "CHAPTER IV."  The "\sloppy" markup is now used in
 place of "\emergencystretch".
 08/11/02.  Some LaTeX formatting changes were made to work around bugs in
 LyX 1.2.  Also, some LaTeX command sequences (like that for the ae
 ligature) were broken and have now been fixed.  Others may still be broken,
 for all I know.
 08/10/02.  Fixed a segfault in the author-deduction code added two days
 08/09/02.  Fixed PR #93 (incorrect treatment of constructs like _[text]_
 and [_text_]).  Fixed PR #94 (mixing/matching of ALL-CAPS italicizing mode
 with other italicizing modes).  [This is handled in two ways:  GutenMark
 attempts to deduce which emphasis mode is used, but also the "--caps-ok"
 switch has been added to simply turn off ALL-CAPS conversion.]
 08/08/02.  LaTeX-related changes:  Output file now includes a table of
 contents.  Command-line switches "--no-toc", "--author", and "--title"
 08/05/02.  Added "--latex-sections" command-line option.
 08/04/02.  All LaTeX-related:  Various bugs I found yesterday (see buglist)
 were fixed.  Also, the hard spaces in sentence breaks have been completely
 eliminated now.  Chapter headings are now ragged-right in all
 08/03/02.  Added a new page to the website, for etexts I've converted to
 LaTeX and PDF.
 08/03/02.  Added "Rev.", "Gen.", and "Messrs" to the list of honorifics.
 All of the following are LaTeX-only changes:  Trailing spaces and periods
 (but not ellipses) are now removed from chapter names as used for page
 headings.  For example, if the chapter name was "CHAPTER III." (as opposed
 to "CHAPTER III"), it will now continue to appear as "CHAPTER III." except
 in the page heading where it is not "CHAPTER III".  An "emergencystretch"
 factor is now added, to eliminate some run-ons into the right margin for
 small page sizes.  The soft-hyphen mechanism after em-dashes has been
 changed, because the old one didn't work.  Honorifics and other
 abbreviations being treated as ends of sentences has been fixed.
 07/25/02.  Addressed PR #85, in which abnormally long input lines can cause
 corruption in the output file.
 07/22/02.  Addressed PR #84, hopefully extending yesterday's fixes from
 Windows 98 to the entire Win32 family.  Sadly -- or perhaps happily -- I
 only have Windows 98 myself, and therefore can't properly test the fixes,
 and did not know that that the previous fixes didn't work in Win2K.
 07/21/02.  Fixed PR #83, in which the PATH environment variable didn't work
 properly.  Fixed PR #80, in which the default configuration file needed --
 unreasonably, I think -- to have the exact paths of the wordlists rather
 than a more graceful means of finding the wordlists.
