GIT repository rebuilt
     posted by dale_mellor, Sun 13 Jun 2010 06:25:12 PM UTC - 0 replies

The GIT source repository has been completely rebuilt, and now holds a faithful representation of the full history of the former CVS repository (including all release tags), as well as all the changes that were made since CVS use ceased (including historically correct dates).

1.0.5 released (without fanfare!)

This includes mostly technical changes to the build system to make the project fit better with the Debian package system.

mcron 1.0.4 released
     posted by dale_mellor, Thu 21 Feb 2008 10:20:15 PM UTC - 0 replies

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 main changes are

  • Updated license to GPLv3.
  • Any file can be named on the command-line, without the .vixie or .guile extensions (used to be silently ignored)
  • The argument to the --schedule option is no longer optional.

I have not pulled the full CVS history across; the GIT repository starts with a clean 1.0.3 tarball.
