                  Release Notes: Tis release supports FreeBSD 4.8 and 5.1, Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 and 3.0, Red Hat Linux 9, SuSE Linux 8.2, and Sun Solaris 8 and 9. The package repository has grown by 25% and a subset of 400 packages were selected for inclusion into this release. All packages were ported to GNU C/C++ 3.3. Package quality was enhanced by the rigorous application of fully automated package checking. The run-command (RC) facility was improved and now provides consistent log file rotation and smarter package upgrade/erase procedures. Over 40 daemon packages were enabled for logging via the flexible OSSP fsl.
