Announcing Kermit 95 1.1.13 for Windows 95, Windows NT, and OS/2

Kermit 95 1.1.13 is now available as a patch to previous Kermit 95 releases
for Windows 95, Windows NT, and OS/2.  This patch fixes a few minor bugs in
the recently-announced 1.1.12, and adds:

 . DDE messages to Web browsers and other apps (Windows only)
 . DEC PATHWORKS support for Windows (OS/2 already had it)
 . Bidirectional printer ports
 . Array initializers

The first item provides a way for URL hotspots (added in 1.1.12) to invoke
your currently loaded browser, rather than always starting a new copy, and
also to invoke other applications by Ctrl-clicking on filenames, etc.  This
works only in Windows 95 and NT systems that have all the right Microsoft
DLLs, and so is not the default; to use this feature, read section 3.12 of
DOCS\UPDATES.DOC.

All the bugs that were reported in 1.1.12 are fixed.
