Changes, Fixes, New Features and Enhancements by Wildcat Component
- Support for NT services.  
  You can now run the following as NT services:
  See wcservices.txt for complete details.
- Support for long file Names (File Database only).
  Note: LFN support begins with new files added to the system. 
        Previous files will still retain its 8.3 short file name 
        format.  It is not possible for the converter to regenerate 
        the long file name from an altered 8.3 name.
- Password Expiration Security Options.
  Wildcat! now supports password security/expiration features on a per
  security profile basis.  See WCCONFIG | SECURITY PROFILES

  It is now possible to restrict the login hours on a per security
  profile basis and/or per user basis. See WCCONFIG | SECURITY PROFILES

- Optional footer and X-header lines for all outgoing emails. See
  wcMAIL description below.

  system, the user is allowed to create a new account, but they are not
  allowed access to the system until the user is validated by the sysop
  or by validation WCX software.

  All you do is create some new files in your data directory:
