through freshmeat.net. All URLs and other useful information can be found


The changes in this release are as follows:
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.

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.
