conserver-8.1.0 is available
The first 2004 release is available...happy new year! There are a
couple of slight changes, cleanups, etc, and one big change with the
client-server protocol. The good news is I was able to send files via
xmodem and zmodem from the client to the console using the ^Ec| syntax,
which failed before the protocol change. I've also enhanced the telnet
protocol code and I believe it will now operate properly with standard
telnet ports.

I hope everyone enjoys the new code and finds that it fixes any problems
you might have seen. If not, please let me know what's wrong!
