HTML::Merge Ver 3.42

We decided to withdraw version 3.42 as it was never loaded to CPAN and to go back to 3.41.
If you needed 3.42 for AIX compile problem, please use 3.41
and applay patch 712287.
We are about to start some engine rewrite and more
documentation soon.

'Freeze' option.

A new feature allows you to precompile all the templates in your instance, so the site can be run without the source files residing on the server.
Source code obfuscation my be applied manually on the precompiled template files.
