gwhois (20050114) unstable; urgency=low
Beginning with the 20040307 version, gwhois was delivered with some quite
extensive lists of ERX (early registration) network blocks. These lists
slowed down gwhois in an unacceptable way. Therefore these lists are

Gwhois will no longer read the old configuration files. The debian package
will delete the old files (when not modified) automatically (with a
warning), on other systems you need to delete them yourself. The files in
Beginning with the 20050114 version gwhois uses curl for some (mainly
https) URLs. It is planned to replace this with libwww-perl later.
