Release Notes: The sample-rate was lowered. The mixer-code was removed. The daemonise-function was changed to use daemon(...). The hashing-code was removed. Code that determines the amount of entropy in a buffer of data was added. The method of entropy-gathering was rewritten. Some code has been added to remove bias in the data.

Release Notes: This release lets the daemon wait until the kernel signals that the lower threshold in /proc/sys/kernel/random/write_wakeup_threshold (number of bits) has been reached, then starts adding until the value of /proc/sys/kernel/random/poolsize (in bytes) has been reached. After a timeout, some entropy is still added (i.e.--wait), just like in version 0.0.0. The signals don't cause problems anymore with reading audio from the sound card.
