D'oh - I forgot to add that to the release notes. As a safety
pre-caution, I disabled the admin user since I had no way to
get people to change it on installation.

To enable the admin user, you have to delete the file
Greenstone/etc/users.db. Greenstone will recreate this file
whenever it is missing (assuming it has write permission to it)
and reset the default admin password to "admin", which you should
of course change to something else immediately.

Also, if you want to use the web front-end "The Collector" for
building collections, make sure the Greenstone/etc/main.cfg file has:
collector enabled
in it (as it might be disabled by default, I can't remember).
