What's New in This Release:
- ./contrib/Debian/ngircd.init: Make sure no stale PID file is left over when (re-)starting ngIRCd.
- Change ./contrib/platformtest.sh and update ./doc/Platforms.txt to allow usernames up to 8 characters.
- Call arc4random_stir() in forked subprocesses, when available. This is required by FreeBSD <10 and current NetBSD at least to correctly initialize the "arc4" random number generator on these platforms.
- Update our own Debian package configuration and fix the default path of the "HelpFile" of the "full" package variants.
