PhysicsFS 2.0.1 is now available.

This is a stable, bug-fix release. As we are still source and binary 
compatible, all users of any previous version--be it 1.0 or 2.0--are 
encouraged to upgrade. New features are being added to the 2.1 branch, 
which is not part of this release.

You can grab it here...
