14 Jun 93 Adds (1) Several new print options
Version 1.13* Changes / Bug-fixes
(1) The name was changed to Little Black Book/2. This was
necessary due to a title conflict with a DOS-based PIM
offering somewhat similar features. Now there should
be less confusion.
* NOTE: Normally only releases ending with a "0" will be made publicly
available. These other releases are sent out to registered users who
have a minor problem with a released version. They are then rolled into
the next widely available version when numerous enhancements are made.
Version 1.13 is an exception, the "problem" here was a name collision
with another product (which effects everyone). This is therefore a very
small interim release to primarily correct that problem. My apologies
to the other shareware author for the confusion and to all my loyal
users (especially the registered ones) as well.
