      2 new (mutually exclusive) command-line options: -force and -filter · d124e3fb
      Rob Swindell authored
      These options are to attempt to address the issue (#178) reported by Michael J. Ryan
      with regards to a Thunderbird error:
      "Sending of the messages failed. You can only send to one news server at a time."
      when attempting to reply to a message that was posted to multiple newsgroups,
      but the server has not actually advertised that it serves that newsgroups (because
      it doesn't or the names a different than one the server uses for the same area).
      -force will force the export "Newsgroups" header field to contain only the name
      of the locally selectec newsgroup.
      -filter will remove any Newsgroup names from the exported "Newsgroups" header
      if they don't exist on the local server.

      Save/restore padding bytes in .cnf files (instead of writing 0's). · e963fe7e
      Rob Swindell authored
      Some padding bytes are expected to be 0xff's (not 0x00's) when
      unused by configuration properties.
      Also, this insures that this library is compatible with future .cnf files
      (i.e. it won't over-write new configuration properties with 0's).

      Add missing/newer configuration to main cnf definition. · fbff979c

      Since cnflib.js doesn't save/restore padding areas (yet), this explains
      why using scripts that use cnflib to update/modify configuration files
      could result in some settings being reverted to default or blank values
      Next-up: fix cnflib so it saves and restores padding areas in .cnf files.
