Thanks for getting this out Charley.

This release represents about a year of work on bug releases and 
incremental improvements to Watir's support for both Firefox and IE. For 
complete details, see

I'm really glad that Charley agreed to take the lead in getting this 
release out the door. Big thanks also go to Jari Bakken, who provided 
numerous fixes. Other contributors to this release include Angrez Singh, 
Derek Berner, Rob Alred, Željko Filipin, Jarmo Pertman, Aidy Lewis, Alan 
Baird and many others. (If you made contributions to this release, but 
did not get credited, please let me or Charley know and we'll update the 
release notes right away.)
