Note last-minute bugfix on installation page

<!-- MAIN CONTENT -->
<h5 class="page-header"><a id="content" name="content">Installation</a></h5>

<p>Bookwyrm is currently implemented as an extension for Firefox. 
Currently releases are compatible with Firefox 1.0 only.
There will be no Deer Park release of Bookwyrm, but we will begin
migrating to Firefox 1.5 when that product is publically released.
The differences between Firefox 1.0 and 1.5 are significant in 
Bookwyrm's case, so we cannot offer releases compatible with both.</p>

<p><strong>We strongly recommend installing into a new profile, just 
in case something goes horribly wrong and the whole profile has to
be deleted.</strong> We don't expect any such disasters, but it 
doesn't hurt to take precautions.</p>

<p><strong>Release Notes</strong></p>

<p><strong>Version 0.1:</strong> Bookwyrm currently includes only a tiny
fraction of the planned features, but already has most of the functionality
of the <acronym title="Text Adventure Development System">TADS</acronym> Game Chest.
Future releases are not guaranteed to be able to import databases created with
this version. There is currently no documentation, but hopefully most of the 
interface is self-explanatory.</p>

<p>This version has only been tested on Windows. Let me know through the mailing list
or Bugzilla if there are any problems running it on OSX or Linux.</p>

<p>A few last-minute bugs were discovered in an earlier upload of the XPI.
If Bookwyrm fails to create the three default categories in the database,
you have gotten the buggy version due to mirroring lag. Uninstall the 
buggy version and download again. You will also need to delete "bookwyrm.rdf"
from the profile folder, or simply install into a clean profile.</p>
