Release Notes: The doexec Pikt script statement was added. Retention of history info (in .hst files) in script quit situations was implemented. In 'output log' statements, the log file name may now be a computable string. 'piktc -G' debug output is now much more useful and relevant. Some issues that broke authentication on 64-bit systems were fixed along with a FreeBSD compilation problem.
Release Notes: A new command-line option for piktc and pikt, "-U", was added for running in "urgent mode" (where no lock file blocks operation).
Release Notes: The piktc '-b' option was implemented for doing backups when installing or deleting files or installing a new PIKT.conf. Several minor bugs were fixed.
Release Notes: A new alert timing option (multiple alert timing specifications) has been implemented. Sending a kill signal to either piktc or piktd will now reliably kill the parent and all child processes. For Linux systems, the default for how the parent process waits on child processes has been reset.
Release Notes: The rkey Q rating was introduced to gauge the quality of the pseudo random number generation. Several more rkey bugs were fixed, and rkey man pages and other documentation were added. The configs_samples were further refined. The configs_starter was revamped, and the tutorial was expanded to include material on getting started. The expanded tutorial is now based on the configs-starter. Command path overrides were introduced in PIKT.conf. A bug where alert headers would sometimes fail to appear was fixed. Some error messages were clarified.
Release Notes: Further refined the configs_samples, renamed many of the identifiers, reorganized some of the files, and rooting out most of the remaining bugs. Further improved random key generation in rkey, and cleaned up several bugs. Clarified several parse error messages.
Release Notes: This release includes fixes for several piktx bugs (most importantly relating to connection timeouts), ARP (MAC/Ethernet address) piktmaster authentication, and some other improvements.
Release Notes: This release has been ported to SCO OpenServer and Digital UNIX, includes the directives #ifsys, #endifsys, etc, and the use of #ifdef, #setdef, #define, etc is now permitted within defines.cfg.
Release Notes: Pikt scripts may now be stand-alone (exist outside of .alt files) and directly executable (much like scripts in other languages). Client-side Pikt scripts may now contain #-style comments. Several minor bugs have been fixed.
Release Notes: Allowing the use of 'piktc -xI' in #include and #verbatim directives, and several bugfixes.
