Version 1.2.0
 - Dialyzer works with the open source and commercial versions of
   R10B-2 on all platforms (i.e., HiPE support is not a prerequisite
 - Whenever a .beam file contains abstract code (i.e., has been compiled
   with the +debug_info option), the analysis starts from this code rather
   than from BEAM bytecode -- this makes the results identical to those
   obtained by analysis starting from source code.
   (This is a contribution from Bjorn Gustavsson - Thanks!)
 - Added -pa command line option for easier handling of -include_lib()
   directives in source code.
 - Includes all changes added in v1.1.1; see below.  The "Add Recursively"
   functionality is also available in the command-line mode (-r option).

Version 1.1.1 (internal, not released to the masses :-)
 - The command-line mode of Dialyzer spits discrepancies in stdout
   by default and returns a numeric value indicating its exit status.
 - Fixed problems using the shell script on Solaris machines.
 - Fixed small inconsistencies in Dialyzer's documentation and help.
 - Added "Add Recursively" button contributed by Martin Bjorklund
