Description Kami 2010-12-30 06:02:35 UTC
We distribute readme files with Linux style line terminator, that is poorly readable under default Windows (XP) installation - using the .txt associated notepad appliaction.

Looks as an enhancement, after all the workaround is Wordpad can do the job.

Hi Tor,

Not sure how do you think if we ship a separate version of readme.txt for Windows? Thanks!

I fixed this on master. I also added word wrap at column 75 for better readability.
