mod-1.0.37 released

NOTE: please don't use the 1.0.x releases unless you need them for backwards compatibility. The development 1.1.x releases are quite stable, as long as you don't use the new (beta) dynamic index feature. All new MOD users should use the development releases. Thanks.

I've started a new CVS branch for 1.0.x. The mod2html script is actually the same as 1.0.36, but the accompanying documentation is now more consistent with that release.

Nonetheless, some people are still using this version since it's extremely stable. If you do download this version, you must use the documentation that comes with the tarball, since the documentation on the MOD homepage reflects the newer development versions, which differ in several ways.

MOD has moved to SourceForge

MOD has now officially been released under the GPL. The official site for the project has been moved to SourceForge to increase its exposure, allow for more collaborative tools, and to make its structure and development methods more consistent with other free software projects.
