Update 3.0 * GIF 89a support. First GIF 87a image is extracted.

* 1024x768x16 SVGA support !!!

* User modes structures are now consistent with all
our .CFG files (eg., MVGAVU, GIFHEX, VGACAD, etc ...)

* BUGFIX: User modes expected GIFDOT.CFG files; this has
been corrected.

* TEMP files enhanced with additional GIFHEX color field.

* Ending "\" pathname specification has been removed.

* Bugfix: Negative disk space errors for user with
MASSIVE hard disks has been fixed.


Update 2.1 * GIFPUB & GIFDOT combined into ONE stand-alone program !

* Fully-optimized PCX RLE compression (about 50% better
than previous GIFPUB releases.

* BUGFIX: Overwritten PCX files were not deleted resulting
in large PCX files; this has been corrected.

* Integrated with VGACAD v2.0 chained environment.
(when released)


Update 2.0 * Full utililization of SVGA images (to 2KBx2KBx256)
* PCX v5.0 support (to 2KBx2KBx256)
* Histogram-equalization; new image processing function
for global grey pixel redistribution

- Flat (linear)
- Sine (Pseudo-Gaussian)
- BiModal (Dual, Overlapping Sine Curves)
- TriModal (Triple, Overlapping Sine Curves)
- Lite Skew (linear w/ positive skew)
- Dark Skew (linear w/ negative skew)

* New error-distributed algorithm using modified Floyd-
Steinberg matrix with "Stucki" values
* User-definable dither density
* User-definable EEGA/SVGA video modes
* Enhanced Brightness and Contrast-Stretching algorithm;
precise grey scale adjustment; reorganized around

Histogram Analysis for better feedback and analysis
* Extended grey scale parsing algorithm - 256 greys mapped
instead of 64 for enhanced detail
* Fast 256-color palette read/write algorithm
* Bugfix: Selection of files with "**MORE**" corrected
