Release Notes: There are no real new features, but multiple bugs were fixed in this release, plus changes to make the code more robust.
Release Notes: This release focuses on Vixie cron compatibility (@reboot, etc., shortcuts, auditing, job environment, email headers, etc.) and refactoring to make the code easier to maintain. fcrondyn also uses the readline library for a nicer user experience, and it doesn't require a password anymore (only really tested on Linux, feedback and help welcome on other platforms).
Release Notes: The prior focus of the 3.0.5 release was to fix a security issue that was found and would allow a malicious user to read fcron configuration files and the fcrontabs of non-root users. It also brings various minor improvements and bug fixes. This release fixes an issue introduced in version 3.0.5 preventing non-privileged users from listing their fcrontab on some systems.
Release Notes: The random option has been improved. A new option, erroronlymail, has been added so that an email is sent only when the job exits with a failure status. Some cleanup on the file closures has been done, which should remove the problems some users would see when jobs were executed.
Release Notes: Since 3.0.2, the build and install processes have changed significantly to make them more standard and make fcron easier to package, and AIX and Solaris platforms are supported better. Some other minor changes give better compatibility with Vixie cron. Please bear in mind that the default install paths have changed since 3.0.3-rc1 to make them more standard.
Release Notes: This development version contains major changes in the build and install processes: the underlying idea is to make them more standard and to make fcron easier to package. This in particular means that the default install paths have changed. Some portability work has also been done for the AIX and Solaris platforms, and two new environment variables (LOGNAME and TZ) are now defined when a job is run.
Release Notes: This version features (among other things) some bug fixes for BSD systems and better compatibility with Vixie Cron.
Release Notes: This release has several bugfixes, especially for BSD systems. The man pages have been translated to French. Please note that a buffer overflow was been found in the program convert-fcrontab, which is part of fcron 3.0.0. It seems that this bug is not exploitable, but it is safer to upgrade to 3.0.1 (which includes a fix for this bug) as soon as possible.
Release Notes: This is the first stable release from the 2.9.X branch. It is a big improvement compared to 2.0.X in robustness, security, and features. fcrondyn, a program to interact with a running fcron process, has been added. PAM support, SE Linux support, the ability to execute fcron in a script and/or without root privileges, and better time zone have been added. Upgrading is highly recommended.
Release Notes: Since 2.9.6, the tzdiff option was replaced by the timezone option, which correctly supports DST changes. A bug which made fcron send empty email messages on very up-to-date systems was fixed. Some other minor changes and bugfixes were made. If no serious problem are reported, this release will be marked as stable 3.0.0.
