+Version 1.2, 2009-12-11
-Pies dubbed a GNU package.
+* First release as a GNU package.
+* Full inetd support
+The program supports all types of services (including built-in
+ones) and all types of protocols offered by the traditional `inetd'
+The `inetd.conf' configuration file format is supported. The
+`inetd' configuration file may be supplied either from the command
+line (see below), or via the `include-inetd' configuration statement.
+* Inetd replacement
+A replacement script for inetd(8) is provided. It is fully
+compatible with the traditional inetd command line, but offers
+the flexibility and new features of pies.
+* Configuration file handling
+Several configuration files, eventually of different types,
+can be specified in the command line. New command line
+option `--syntax' declares the syntax of configuration
+files that follow it, e.g.:
+pies --config-file /etc/pies.conf \
+ --syntax=inetd --config-file /etc/inetd.conf \
+ --syntax=meta1 --config-file /etc/meta1/meta1.conf
+* New keywords.
+Component keywords: flags, service, socket-type,
+max-instances, max-rate, qotd-file.
+Global keywords: state-directory, include-inetd.
+* New option --instance
+The `--instance' option allows you to run several instances
+of pies, each of them using separate configuration and
+state files.
+* New option --rate
+For compatibility with inetd.
+* Improved status output.
Version 1.1, 2009-10-20
