This email is to inform you of release '2.9.0' of 'fcron' through
freshmeat.net. All URLs and other useful information can be found at

The changes in this release are as follows:
A new program, fcrondyn, allow dynamic communication with a running
fcron process. Some options (-y, -o, -l, volatile, and stdout) have
been added to run fcron in scripts, such as a ppp-up script. The
documentation has been ported to Docbook, so there's a nice HTML
version. There are some bugfixes.

Project description:
Fcron is a periodical command scheduler which aims at replacing vixie
cron, so it implements most of its functionality. It does not assume
that your system is running either all the time or regularly: you can,
for instance, tell fcron to execute tasks every x hours y minutes of
system uptime or to do a job only once in a specified interval of
time. You can also set a nice value to a job, run it depending on the
system load average, and much more.
