I'm pleased to announce a new version of abduco which features
a few important bug fixes and tweaks to the command line interface.

Changes include:

 * Stale sockets, left over from unexpected abduco terminations
   (e.g. being killed, a crash etc.) are detected and removed.

 * The default location for session socket information can now
   be configured via config.def.h and at runtime by changing
   the $ABDUCO_SOCKET_DIR environment variable.

 * The default command (if none is given on the command line)
   specified by setting the $ABDUCO_CMD environment variable
   is now executed using the shell. Hence the command can contain
   arbitrary arguments. As an example the following instructs
   abduco to launch dvtm with a non-standard modifier if no
   explicit command is given:

    $ export ABDUCO_CMD="dvtm -m ^b"
    $ abduco -c demo

 * The session list is printed whenever neither an action nor
   a session name (or socket path) was given. This allows to
   change the default detach key by means of a shell alias

    $ alias abduco="abduco -e ^q"

   and still get an overview over currently running sessions using

    $ abduco

 * Command line arguments can now be combined i.e.

    $ abduco -ar demo

   works where previously one had to specify

    $ abduco -r -a demo

 * New -l (low priority) option which will not change the
   terminal size, useful for non-interactive use.

 * Bugfix for the handling of -A (attach to session create it
   if it does not yet exist).

 * The cursor is always made visible after session detach.

 * The README contains an example of how to set up read only
   sessions using socat(1), illustrating how simple Unix tools
   can be combined. It also features a new section giving
   some basic debugging advice.
