Caution:  When upgrading from an old version of bogofilter, to ensure
it's working properly, it's worth running a few manual command line
tests.  Using options, config files, and wordlists from your procmail or
maildrop scripts is suggested.

0.92.4	2004-07-29

* Warn on invalid options, rather than exit.

  %A, %I, %Q.
