Dear OpenBIOS community,

it's time for another update of BeginAgain, the OpenBIOS forth kernel,
and it does deserve version number 1.1

It is available from the OpenBIOS CVS in the directory "kernel/" 
or at http://www.openbios.org/bin/kernel-1.1.tar.bz2
Changes since 1.0
- some code optimizations speed BeginAgain up by an average of 20%,
  loops are up to 300% faster.
- fixes, cleanups.. IO operations work now, compiling on BSD almost
  works ;-)
- new plugin interface allows external plugins to emulate certain
- A PCI plugin allows emulating PCI devices in the Linux/Unix version
  of BeginAgain
- A QT plugin emulates a graphics card providing an 8bit framebuffer.
  There's currently no fcode driver yet to drive this framebuffer, but
  it can be accessed from forth.
