Revision History:
4/13/1989 Released version 0.03 as VGAGRAF0.LZH on the Tech BBS
(417-862-9824 9pm-7am) as Beta test release site.
4/19/1989 Released version 0.03 as VGAGRAF0.ZIP on local BBSs. Fixed minor
bug in EGA routine for color control.

5/05/1989 Released version 0.04 as VGAGRAF0.EXE (self extracting). Wrote
assembly language routines to replace library graphics functions.
This speeds up everything that writes to screen. Added rubber
banded lines, ellipses, rectangles. Modified ellipses so center
is now start point (allows ellipses partially on screen).
Added full screen mouse cursor and 'cross-hair' cursor.
5/07/1989 Fixed bug in EGA digitizing routine. Now uses default palette
colors (although they are shuffled a bit). Added mode dependant
'pseudo' dithering for digitizer.
