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.
