HeX 1.0.3, the CNY Release

I am pleased to announce the release of HeX 1.0.3, release info is below. Thanks to the entire development team for their dedication and hard work. This release has been dubbed the CNY, or Chinese New Year release.

With the recent release of FreeBSD 7.0 RC2, we anticipate an actual 7.0 release in the near future. When the Release version of 7.0 becomes available we will begin working on the new HeX 2.0 project.
