    Release Notes: This release reverts a patch from lesstif 0.93.96 to 0.93.97, which resulted in bug 1578451 (crashes on pressing in menus). It fixes several 64-bit issues. It fixes a number of security issues (signed and unsigned comparisons) in the Xpm reading code (CAN-2005-0605). It fixes the use of accels with more than one modifier. It fixes the layout of applications with widgets that have the AttachBottom set to AttachSelf, which fixes using z88 with lesstif. It fixes VendorSP.h inclusion from cpp code. Xt warnings on unnecessary ungrab (xpdf) have been silenced. It fixes a crash in xim chained lists.

            Release Notes: This release fixes a grabbing problem with nedit (some nedit windows would freeze) and a bug in _XmStringDraw (e.g., in OpenDX, it incorrectly centered text in a label widget). Work has begun to extend LessTif to work with the Xft library so anti-aliased fonts can be used.
