1. I updated my config files, but they didn't work.

Some of the config files, notably `paths', moved in 1.65 to the
new /waffle/uucp directory.  Make sure you aren't editing the file
in the old 1.64 location.

2. I'm going to run makebox.  Anything I should know ?

Yes.  Makebox deletes the old mail files after it assembles the 
new mailbox.  If you're paranoid, you might want to zip up your 
1.64 mail messages before running makebox if you're not sure you'll 
stay at 1.65.

In case you mess up, try to find a copy of `explode.zip' (it's on
ftp.halcyon.com in /pub/waffle/mail); it will take a 1.65 mailbox
back to 1.64 format.

3. 1.65 sure seems scary, why should I bother?

Lots of reasons.  See history.doc and release.165 for details.

Of course, if you're happy with the version you run, there's
not a lot of rush to get updated, though most of the c.b.w
readers keep at the current version and you'll get better help
from c.b.w by staying current.  In addition, there are
increasingly many utilities that will only work with version
1.65 .  However, there are still some Waffle sites at v1.61,
so obviously old versions still work.
