GNU Mcron 1.1 released

Item posted by Mathieu Lirzin <mthl> on Mon 19 Mar 2018 12:37:13 AM UTC.

We are pleased to announce the release of GNU Mcron 1.1,
representing 124 commits, by 3 people over 4 years.

Download

Here are the compressed sources and a GPG detached signature[*]:
https://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/mcron/mcron-1.1.tar.gz
https://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/mcron/mcron-1.1.tar.gz.sig

Use a mirror for higher download bandwidth:
https://ftpmirror.gnu.org/mcron/mcron-1.1.tar.gz
https://ftpmirror.gnu.org/mcron/mcron-1.1.tar.gz.sig

[*] Use a .sig file to verify that the corresponding file (without the
.sig suffix) is intact. First, be sure to download both the .sig file
and the corresponding tarball. Then, run a command like this:

gpg --verify mcron-1.1.tar.gz.sig

If that command fails because you don't have the required public key,
then run this command to import it:

gpg --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys 0ADEE10094604D37

and rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.

This release was bootstrapped with the following tools:
Autoconf 2.69
Automake 1.16.1

NEWS

Noteworthy changes in release 1.1 (2018-03-19) [stable]
    • New features

The 'job' procedure has now a '#:user' keyword argument which allows
specifying a different user that will run it.

Additional man pages for 'cron(8)' and 'crontab(1)' are now generated using
GNU Help2man.

    • Bug fixes

Child process created when executing a job are now properly cleaned even
when execution fails by using 'dynamic-wind' construct.

    • Improvements

GNU Guile 2.2 is now supported.

Some procedures are now written using functional style and include a
docstring. 'def-macro' usages are now replaced with hygienic macros.

Compilation is now done using a non-recursive Makefile, supports out of tree
builds, and use silent rules by default.

Guile object files creation don't rely on auto-compilation anymore and are
installed in 'site-ccache' directory.

Jobs are now internally represented using SRFI-9 records instead of vectors.

Changelog are generated from Git logs when generating the tarball using
Gnulib gitlog-to-changelog script.

A test suite is now available and can be run with 'make check'.

    • Changes in behavior

The "--enable-debug" configure variable has been removed and replaced with
MCRON_DEBUG environment variable.

The "--disable-multi-user" configure variable is now used to not build and
install the 'cron' and 'crontab' programs. It has replaced the
"--enable-no-vixie-clobber" which had similar effect.

(mcron core) module is now deprecated and has been superseeded by
(mcron base).

Please report bugs to bug-mcron@gnu.org.
