Here are the notes about what is new in version 1.4.

The story program runs on Unix servers and on Windows NT servers. Here are links to download the Unix and Windows NT versions. To download the story program, you will need to copy it to your home computer, then transfer the program from there to your server. There are lots of different ways of doing this, depending on your setup. Here are the details. People send me a lot of e-mail when they get stuck in the download process, so this page describes what to do in lots of detail. I apologize to the people who already know how to do this and don't need this much detail. The download process for the story program is pretty standard, so if you're familiar with installing programs on your server you can skip these details.

How do I upgrade from an earlier version?
If you have not customized the story program, all you need to do is replace your story.cgi or old program with the new program. Keep your old storyconfig program, unchanged. If you are upgrading from story.cgi to, then on your web pages, you will need to change any links to story.cgi to point to instead.
