Description Konstantin Kolinko 2009-05-26 07:38:52 UTC
The Windows installer has option
[x] Show Readme
that is checked by default.

It results in file 
"C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 6.0\webapps\ROOT\RELEASE-NOTES.txt"
being opened in Notepad.

In TC 6.0.18 and in current RC for 6.0.20 that file has LF line ends. Notepad cannot properly display such files.
