[Ifeffit] Ins:-simple suggestion when you make new releases

Actually, I would like to interject here and state that artemis seems 
to work fine (other than the color problem) with 804.  I have been 
using it fairly extensively.  The newest version also seems to work 
just fine.  I did find a problem with using a different version of feff 
than the supplied feff6.  When I changed the environment to execute 
feff82, atoms and feff ran fine, however, artemis was not able to load 
the paths correctly.  It was necessary to load them by by hand (via the 
add a feff path menu item) after which it worked fine.  This is with 
Mac OS 10.3.2 and with perl 5.8.2.  There are some complaints in the 
log window about non-initialized variables but it didn't seem to have 
any effect on the execution.  Keep up the good work.
