Release Notes: This is a minor bugfix release. It fixes compiling with -lcap on RedHat Enterprise Linux, allows jk_chrootsh to be called -su, improves argument handling and error messages, and makes jk_cp honor the -j option again.
Release Notes: This is a minor bugfix release. It has fixes to compile if -pthread and -lcap are both needed, fixes for a bug in an environment cleaning function, improvements for jk_init.ini for some 64bit Linux distributions, and improved error messages.
Release Notes: This minor feature enhancement release handles symlinks for /bin, /lib, and /sbin if they point into /usr (as Fedora 17 does) and uses -pthreads instead of -lpthreads, if available, so it will compile on some modern Linux versions.
Release Notes: This version fixes an infinite loop in jk_cp and jk_init if ldd output for some reason contains two slashes (//lib/libfoo.so). Furthermore, jk_chrootsh can now be called as "su".
Release Notes: This release fixes a regression in the build system of 2.12 that could set the wrong default directory for ini files.
