Hello!

To make things easier to grasp I'll highlight the most important changes
in Orber.

* Performance - the Inter-ORB communication overhead significantly 
  reduced; how much depends on the arguments/return-values.

* oe_register/oe_unregister - the overhead for registering
  IDL-specifications in the IFR significantly reduced.

* New configuration parameters (see User's Guide - 5.2 Configuration):
  - orber_debug_level generate reports for abnormal situations (i.e. not
    necessarily an error). Hence, use only during development.
  - iiop_setup_connection_timeout which should be used at all time
    together with iiop_connection_timeout and iiop_timeout.

* System exceptions - Orber now supports all system exceptions defined in
  the CORBA-2.4 specification. The documentation also contain a listing of 
  all exceptions and why/when they might be thrown. Please note that it's
  the "short version"; for an extensive description see  
  http://www.omg.org/cgi-bin/doc?formal/01-02-01.
