  this is problably the last ELinks Iceberg release ever, if no grave
bugs will be discovered (that is, security or crashes). It is just
plenty of bugfixes, everyone is strongly encouraged to upgrade. I'm
sorry it took so long, as it comes just before 0.5.0 (which will be out
at Christmas). I hope we will do better for Skyrider.

  Please report any crashes you could encounter. This release should be
crashes-free, there is no known way how to bring it to knees. Even the
FreeBSD weird crashing bug was fixed finally (see ChangeLog for full
attributions ;-).

  The main changes in elinks-0.4.3rc1 (from 0.4.2) are:
