- <organicstructure> <imageresponse> ignored tex printing size
- <part> inside of <td> didn't print
- loncontrol more admanent about killing off daemons
- announcements work across DST changes
- bulletin boards with images look better
- aboutme links work again
- print dirs sorts case insesitively
- print dirs as Co-author detects correct pulication status
- parms 'hiddenresource','encrypturl','randompick','randompickseed'
   no longer show up in PARM (since they didn't work there anyway)
- print from dir with resources with really longnames could go into an
   infinite loop
- %wrong graph readded
- delete unviewable resources works better
- plotting empty curves in gnuplot 4.0 works
- print no longer prints <script> blocks

Known Issues:
- 1.1 servers are unable to host sessions for course running on 1.2
   servers, you will need to upgrade all machines in the cluster at the
   same time. (Or at least the access servers need to be updated
   before the library servers)
- TEST is broken
