     5== September 5, 2006 ==  
     6[ftp://ftp.mcs.anl.gov/pub/bcfg/bcfg2-0.8.3.tar.gz Bcfg2-0.8.3] released. 
     7 * Extensible variable interpolation in Cfg (substitution of 
     8   @@hostname@@, etc) 
     9 * Considerably improved Debian support (no longer does anything in 
     10   dry-run mode; does not call apt-get clean, etc unless explicitly 
     11   told to) 
     12 * Considerably improved Solaris support (better handling of smf 
     13   legacy services and removal of sysv packages) 
     14 * A bug causing web report failures was fixed 
     15 * An interactive client mode has been implemented (prompting for 
     16   which configuration entries can be updated in a client run) 
     17 * The debian packaging has been completely redone 
     18 * The init script has been rewritten to be lsb compliant 
     19 * Cron scripts are now provided, and packaged with debs and rpms 
     20 * The Encap packaging has been dramatically improved, and should now 
     21   work properly on solaris 
     22 * Hostbase (an IP management system) has been updated, and its web 
     23   interface is available in thsi release. 
     24 * The bcfg2 client can now autoselect between lxml, elementtree, and 
     25   the integrated version of elementtree in python2.5. This means that 
     26   the client can be run using _only_ python2.5 as a prereq! 
     27 * Added a new debian package index creation script 
     28 * Updated rpmlisting.py (use file name parsing if possible, yielding 
     29   50X speedup for properly formatted file repositories) 
     30 * Added a new utility to query clients.xml based on client properties 
     31   (up/down, profile, etc) 
     32 * Fixed syslog reconnect code (triggered by syslog restart) 
     33 * Fixed syslog compatibility with solaris 
     34 * The Redhat toolset now calls rpm -e with --allmatches 
     35 * Various schema fixes
