Previews of BAMSE will be placed in http://dist.lp.se/historical/VMS/PREVIEWS/. Please look there, and try it out and report whatever faults you've found.
My CVS repository for BAMSE is http://cvs.lp.se/viewcvs/bamse/. Take a look if you really want to see exactly what I've commited in the last few hours or days.
