>Extensions 1.4a:
>* Erich Koerting updated the German dialogue files. Thanks!
>* On Unix platforms only, the variable DOUBLECLICKDELAY of the registry
>  $HOME/.thotrc allows one to control the delay (in millisecond) under which
>  two mouse clicks are classed as a double-click. The default value is
>  500 ms.
>* Increased the default network timeout from 20000 ms to 60000 ms.
>* Changed the USE_CACHE registry variable to ENABLE_CACHE, to be conform
>  to the other registry variables.
> Fixed bugs 1.4a:
>* There was a memory leak when following an internal link pointing
>  to an inexistent anchor.
>* Links which point to non-existent documents or invalid URLs
>  are now left in the "active" state, instead of being set to the
>  "visited" state.
>* Browsing an image from an edited document (and thus requiring the
>  opening of a new document window), didn't show the image.
>* Patches in Amaya Makefiles (suggestions from Sam and Adam)
>* Patch for compiling libwww under FreeBSD (contributed by Don Croyle)
>* When one created a table while the current selection pointed to an empty
>  paragraph, Amaya tried to replace the empty paragraph by the table, but
>  there was a bug which corrupted the Amaya internal structure.
>* When requesting a document from a slow site, pressing the Stop button
>  before the network connection was established could crash Amaya
>* When downloading a document with images from the net, following any
>  internal link in the document caused the interruption of the whole download.
>* There was no protection against a redirection to a URL with
>  protocols not handled by Amaya
>* In case of a redirection error, Amaya would not automatically
>  terminate the request
