8* Upgraded EUC-TW, ISO-2022-CN, ISO-2022-CN-EXT converters to Unicode 3.1.
9* Changed the GB18030 converter to not reject unassigned and private-use
10  Unicode characters.
11* Fixed a bug in the byte order mark treatment of the UCS-4 decoder.
12* The manual pages are now distributed also in HTML format.
13
14New in 1.6:
15* The iconv program's -f and -t options are now optional.

21New in 1.5:
22* Added an iconv(1) program.
23* New locale dependent encodings "char", "wchar_t".
24* Transliteration is now off by default. Use a //TRANSLIT suffix to enable it.
25* The JOHAB encoding is documented again.

27
28New in 1.4:
29* Added GB18030, BIG5HKSCS converters.
30* Portability to OS/2 with emx+gcc.
31
32New in 1.3:
33* Added UCS-2BE, UCS-2LE, UCS-4BE, UCS-4LE converters.
34* Fixed the definition of EILSEQ on SunOS4.
35* Fixed a build problem on OSF/1.
36* Support for building as a shared library on Win32.

39* Added UTF-16BE and UTF-16LE converters.
40* Changed the UTF-16 encoder.
41* Fixed the treatment of tab characters in the UTF-7 converter.
42* Fixed an internal error when output buffer was not large enough.
43
44New in 1.1:
45* Added ISO-8859-16 converter.
46* Added CP932 converter, a variant of SHIFT-JIS.
47* Added CP949 converter, a variant of EUC-KR.
48* Improved the ISO-2022-CN-EXT converter: It now covers the ISO-IR-165 range.
49* Updated the ISO-8859-8 conversion table.
50* The JOHAB encoding is deprecated and not documented any more.
51* Fixed two build problems: 1. "make -n check" failed. 2. When libiconv was
52  already installed, "make" failed.

56* Added a test suite.
57* Fixed the iconv(3) manual page and function: the return value was not
58  described correctly.
59* Fixed a bug in the CP1258 decoder: invalid bytes now yield EILSEQ instead of
60  U+FFFD.

64  characters at some invalid code positions.
65* Fixed a bug in the EUC-TW decoder; it was severely broken.
66* Fixed a bug in the CP950 converter: it recognized a dubious BIG5 range.
67
68New in 0.3:
69* Reduced the size of the tables needed for the JOHAB converter.
70* Portability to Win32.
71
