Yaiy!  A new release.

On Friday I will test the fix for including Lout-generated EPS files in Lout-generated documents. I shall share the results. Thanks a lot.

A brief summary of what's new appears below.  Could people who reported
the bugs and requested the features please try out the new version?  I'm
particularly anxious about the fix to including Lout-generated EPS files
in Lout-generated documents.  It all works well here but it's a wild, wild
PostScript world out there and I would welcome reports of successful use of
EPS inclusion using 3.32, in all combinations (Lout-generated or non-Lout-
generated EPS files into Lout-generated or non-Lout-generated documents).
Well, perhaps not non-Lout-generated EPS into non-Lout-generated documents.

Changes and new features introduced in Version 3.32 [October 2006]

   Bug fixes:
      Uwe's problem of CRLF occurring on file block boundaries fixed, I hope

   Multi-column lists (see List section of User's Guide for details)
   Basic command-line errors print usage as well as error message
   "break" option for lists, "@ListBreak" in setup file (Summerfield)
   "labelright" list option, "@ListLabelRight" in setup file (Summerfield)
