*****************************************************************************

WARNING!
(2.0a)

Version 2.0a modifies some internal structures, making it incompatible with
the USER.DAT and SETUP.DAT files used by previous versions. You _MUST_ run
CONVERT3.EXE to convert these files before you will be able to run version
2.0a (see CONVERT3.DOC for more information). ALSO NOTE: any external
utility written to work with rOver is unlikey to work with the new version,
unless it has been updated with the new file formats. Contact the author(s)
of such program(s) for updates, as necessary.

*****************************************************************************

WARNING!
(1.9n)

Version 1.9n modifies some internal structures, making it incompatible with
BBSFILES.IDX files created by previous versions. You _MUST_ delete this
file and rebuild it with the 1.9n version of BBSMAINT ("BBSMAINT /z" will
accomplish this) in order for your files system to function correctly.

*****************************************************************************


NOTE! The CONVERT and CONVERT2 programs mentioned below are no longer
distributed as a part of rOver. They can be obtained from file
area 12 of The Wizard's Workshop (301)-322-8678 if necessary.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you are currently running a rOverBoard prior to version 1.9e, you will need
to run the CONVERT2 program before you will be able to use version 1.9f. In
addition, any utility that accesses SETUP.DAT or USER.DAT will probably not
function correctly unless written specifically for this version 1.9e or above.

If you are currently running a rOverBoard with a version less than 1.9a, you
will need to run CONVERT.EXE, _then_ run CONVERT2.EXE before executing the
new version.

See the documentation in the CONVERT.ZIP and CONVERT2.ZIP files for more info.
