Please send Pies bug reports to <bug-pies@gnu.org> or
<bug-pies@gnu.org.ua>


Version 1.2.90 (Git)

* New flag siggroup.

This flag instructs pies to send termination signal to the process
group of the process being stopped.


Version 1.2, 2009-12-11

* 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'
utility.

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

* Account for possible system clock inaccuracies.
* Improve documentation.
* Add Polish and Ukrainian translations.


Version 1.0, 2009-10-17

First stand-alone release.  Previous versions were released as
part of Mailfromd (http://mailfromd.software.gnu.org.ua).
