Release Notes: Many.
Release Notes: This is principally the same security fix as for the stable version, but a number of useful options are now passed as default to pppd, where they're supported, and you can control the speaker and blind-dialing from connectd's config file without hacking the modem chat script.
Release Notes: Multiple providers works on ISDN (except that the add-provider script doesn't know anything about them). The limit of 32 providers can be exceeded with the correct ./configure switch. Tcpd support is back in with gcc 2.96 (e.g. Red Hat 7.0+).
Release Notes: New provider specific event scripts (up/down/periodic-event), a whole bunch of fixes and additions for cost quotas (kconnect and wconnect will display the quota remaing and an ETA of when it expires), connect and wconnect can prompt for an ISP's password before dialing (e.g., RACOM users), and kconnect handles most errors without exiting.
Release Notes: Connectd will now display each user's share of a call's cost, although this feature requires wconnect 0.85.1 or the included kconnect. kconnect now compiles under KDE2. More './configure --disable-FEATURE' options were added to allow for a smaller build. The output of the exec/start/stop scripts are now logged. Various others minor enhancmenets and bugfixes were made.
Release Notes: Some optional code and libraries can be disabled via ./configure switches, smarter and faster scheduling, some more messaging refinements, and fixes from 2.5.0/4.
Release Notes: For ISDN/ADSL, handling of a provider's start/stop scripts has been rewritten to try and avoid race conditions. For analog modems, the chat script can be specified per provider.
Release Notes: Billing quotas, external authentication, 'connect exec ...' runs a command inside a net session, connect can cut more than two columns from a table, and the ability to add your own fields for providers and users.
