Version 1.0.4 of mcron is released.

mcron is a replacement for the original Vixie cron daemon, written in guile and allowing guile job description files (as well as Vixie-style ones) for increased flexibility.

  • The argument to the --schedule option is no longer optional.

Mcron is supposed to be a 100% Vixie compatible cron daemon written in pure guile. As well as understanding Vixie-style `crontab' files, it also accepts scheme files which allow infinite flexibility in the way jobs can be scheduled. However, due to ...
