I was considering making a pre-announcement of an upcoming LCDproc 0.5.1
release in the next few days.

I wanted to wait a few days before the announcement since I did not get any
feedback regarding the CFONTZ633_WRITE_DELAY issue yet.

In the mean time (i.e. in the last 3 days ;-) I have
* upgraded the man pages a bit so that they reflext the reality better
* improved (and documented) the config file parser logic so that it now
- accepts spaces around keys and values
- accepts spaces in the section labels
(might save a few lines in lcdexec.conf ;-)
- returns failure on parsing errors
all this while keeping compatibility with the existing config file parser

Athough this is not the official announcement of an upcoming 0.5.1 release:
Please check out tonight's tar ball and test it !
Please report any failures or bugs you encounter to help shake out
bugs in CVS and make the upcoming release as good as possible.
(even better: send patches fixing bugs)
