1.1

Patches 1-9 for 1.0 are integrated. Also ctypes are faster now. Added field description to the *.src files.

patch001
Scandir
Fixes a problem with waisindex. Indexing a database the first time causes core dump on some systems because the return value of scandir was not checked.
patch002
X11R6
Makes the x client compile with X11R6.

patch003
waisserver
Adds a forgotten fflush which caused problems on some systems.

patch004
xwais
Fixes an "one-off" bug in qcommands.c.

patch005
server security
when the server accepted a connection from a client, the host_name and host_address variables were left as empty strings (and so never matched the entries in theDATA_SEC file)! These need to be reset for each new client connection, which is what the patch does.

patch006
long headlines
Fixes a bug regarding long headlines. This bug prevents long headlines from being returned using waisq, waissearch, etc.

patch007
line numbers for format file parsing
Due to incompatibilities of flex, the fmt file parser always complains about syntax errors in line 0. This patch fixes this problem - you now will get the real line number, where the error occurred.

patch008
unreadable files
Indexing with the '-r' option caused core dumps when encountering an unreadble file. Also encountering already indexed files was fatal. The patch solves this. A message is printed in both cases.

patch009
date in headline
The date format for the headline did not work. This patch solves most of the known problems with this.
