Release Notes: Respawning behaviour has been improved. Support for running client processes in the foreground, querying/controlling a running daemon, and more security checks have been added. Control over environment variable handling and configuration file support have been improved. This release has been ported to Solaris 8, and FreeBSD binary package generation and Debian source package generation have been added. Support for gzipped man pages has been added.
Release Notes: Support was added for supplementary groups when handling --user=user (with no specific ".group"). The --chroot, --chdir, --umask, --force, --outlog and --errlog options were added. The default umask was changed to 022 for safety. SIGCHLD handling was simplified. The documentation was proofread. The program was ported to OpenBSD.
