Hi all!

Happy holidays and happy new year!

I am proud to announce the new release of fortune-mod - version 1.99.3 - by a
new upstream (mostly me for now). fortune-mod is a program to display a random
quotation on the console.

The GitHub repository for it is https://github.com/shlomif/fortune-mod and the
archives for now are at
http://www.shlomifish.org/open-source/projects/fortune-mod/arcs/ .

Changes in this new release:

1. Convert the build system from hacky makefiles to CMake .

2. Correct some typos.

3. Get rid of trailing whitespace.

4. Add a test suite and Travis CI.

Distributors are welcome to upgrade to it instead of the old fortune-mod
1.99.1 . There may be some problems and bugs in it, but it was tested locally
and seems to be working fine.
