Actually, many of the changes in the man pages /aren't/ version number
updates; they're mostly apostrophe handling. Those and most of the
other changes look okay.
Looking at the changes to Perl/Shorewall/Providers.pm, there are a few
occurrences of "$foo =~ s/-A bar //" becoming "$foo =~ s/-A //" which
don't obviously tie up with any of the items mentioned in the changelog;
I'm afraid I got slightly lost in a twisty maze of functions trying to
decide if the changes were correct. :-/
