+ Changes since 1.0
+ =================
+- Added a new option --dream which displays an image instead
+ of text.
+- Added a new --think mode which displays a thought bubble
+ instead of the usual speech bubble
+- Added new wrapper scripts xcowdream and xcowthink as
+ shortcuts for the above.
+- Added a new Portuguese translation (courtesy of Vin�cius
+ Moreira de Oliveira)
+- Made --disable-dbus the default configure option as not
+ many people seem to be using the daemon. Hopefully this
+ will be replaced by the GNOME applet soon anyway.
+- Removed the xcowat script as it was pretty useless.
+- You can now click on the bubble as well as the cow to close
+ the window.
+- Fixed a bug where the cow could appear off the left edge
+ of the screen in some circumstances. (Although this will
+ still occur if the cow and bubble are wider than the screen.)
+- Fixed a separate bug where the bubble could appear cut off
+ at the top of the screen.
+- Fixed various bugs with the daemon mode.
+- A few other bug fixes ;-)
