    VERSION 3.99 - SERVICE RELEASE 20 - FEBRUARY 27 2018 ----------------------------------------------------

    NOTE: There was a security vulnerability fixed in SR19. If you are upgrading
    from SR18 or earlier, please review the HISTORY.TXT file and go
    over the notes for SR19 prior to installing this update.

    This is a very minor release which cleans up some code behind-the-scenes
    and removes the following problematic settings: Bounce NETmail to Unlisted,
    Log voice calls (defaults to enabled), Xmail raw packet interval (same
    as normal), Xmail debugging - obsolete and Gateway users (script this
    in a batch file instead for BBS usage).

    In addition:

    - A problem with EMS memory not being used or initialized correctly when
    running on a "real" MS-DOS system should be fixed. Note that there is
    a few conditions which must be met in order for D'Bridge to use EMS
    memory on these systems; it doesn't just automatically use it because
    it exists.

    - A possible "waiting for keyboard input" bug on tossing should be resolved.

    - A new file, DBRIDGE.DRQ (Deny Request), can be created containing the
    area name, a space, and the system of which Areafix/Filefix messages
    can be denied to. The remote system will see an "Area unavailable"
    message if they are listed in this file and attempt to request the area
    and the area will NOT show up in any list-requests.

    For example: SECRET_AREA 1:229/500

    Means that SECRET_AREA is not available to be requested by 229/500.

    - A bug in the help system has been fixed.

    - A bug in CONFIG-XMAIL should be fixed (regression)

    - The TECHSPEC.TXT file has been slightly revised and updated.

    Downloaded and installed.

    I suggest that every D'Bridge user customises the tear-line and adds SR20, and subsequent SR-numbers. It's obvious then what version one is using.

    Maybe this is something which Nick could automate?
