- Removed some vestigial code in inflate
- Update web address in README

Changes in 1.0.4 (24 Jul 96)
- In very rare conditions, deflate(s, Z_FINISH) could fail to produce an EOF
  bit, so the decompressor could decompress all the correct data but went
  on to attempt decompressing extra garbage data. This affected minigzip too.
- zlibVersion and gzerror return const char* (needed for DLL)

Changes in 1.0.3 (2 Jul 96)

  small and medium models; this makes the library incompatible with previous
  versions for these models. (No effect in large model or on other systems.)
- return OK instead of BUF_ERROR if previous deflate call returned with
  avail_out as zero but there is nothing to do
- added memcmp for non STDC compilers

- don't use unsized arrays to avoid silly warnings by Visual C++:
     warning C4746: 'inflate_mask' : unsized array treated as  '__far'

- faster crc32()

Changes in 0.8 (29 April 95)

  (actually that was not a compiler bug, see 0.81 above)
- gzread no longer reads one extra byte in certain cases
- In gzio destroy(), don't reference a freed structure
- avoid many warnings for MSDOS
- avoid the ERROR symbol which is used by MS Windows

Changes in 0.71 (14 April 95)
- Fixed more MSDOS compilation problems :( There is still a bug with
  TurboC large model.

Changes in 0.7 (14 April 95)
- Added full inflate support.
- Simplified the crc32() interface. The pre- and post-conditioning
