    74   * merge realname into path for altsrc templates in TCheetah 
    75   * Switch default to RPMng/YUMng (RPM/Yum are still around just not enabled by default) 
    76   * quiet down RPMng a little (patch from lueningh) 
    77   * Implement bcfg2-remote -H - 
    78   * Add a realname attribute in altsrc bound entries and add TCheetah support

    82   * Switch !DebInit to use invoke-rc.d (Resolves Ticket #434) 
    83   * Fix bcfg2-info build command 
    84   * add altsrc to schema 
     40=== 0.9.6pre2 === 
     41 * bcfg2-reports (command line client to the reporting system) 
     42 * Editor plugin 
     43 * Plugin interface for metadata and statistics backends 
     44 * bcfg2-admin query (command line interface to metadata) 
     45 * FreeBSD rc support 
     46 * Pkgmgr optimizations (10X speedup on python2.4+) 
     47 * Switch server startup operations to process filesystem updates before listening on network 
     48 * Add direct logging support for bcfg2 and bcfg2-server 
    8549 
    86  * 0.9.5pre1 
    87   * Reporting System Features: 
    88    * Hosts may be "expired" to prevent them from showing up in reports. Data still exists for them, so if one views a calendar date before they were expired, they'll still show up. 
    89    * '''requires action''' The config file for reports has changed locations from the inappropriate location inside the bcfg2 python module, to be part of bcfg2.conf. Please look at the included example bcfg2.conf to see the new format 
    90    * '''requires action''' Reporting System may be installed at any URL, that is, it can be installed in a sub directory and not at the root of a virtual host. Django 0.96 is now required. 
    91   * Bcfg2 Agent Mode: 
    92    * Initial release of this functionality 
    93    * Client may run in an idle mode waiting for reconfiguration command from the server 
    94    * Use bcfg2-remote to initiate a client's reconfiguration operation 
    95    * Uses fingerprint based authentication for https xml-rpc connection 
    96    * Useful for instant reconfiguration of client without ssh'ing to host 
    97    * still need to add daemonize code and init script support (next pre) 
    98   * Binary diff uploads now work properly 
    99   * Added the TGenshi plugin (contributed by Jeff Ollie) 
    100   * Added the SGenshi plugin 
    101    * is intended for use as a structure, like bundler or base. 
    102    * only uses the genshi xml format 
    103    * results in completely programmable bundles 
    104    * this could eventually replace both bundler and base, as it is 
    105    * more powerful 
    106   * Added entry remapping support 
    107    * with the addition of an extra altsrc attribute, entries can be remapped to a different source. 
    108    * For example, if you have the same config file with different paths on different architectures, you can add altsrc to use the same plugin and repository on all architectures. ie: 
    109      {{{<ConfigFile name='/etc/inet/hosts' altsrc='/etc/hosts'/>}}} 
    110      will cause all linux and solaris systems to use the same plugin source for data on all clients. 
    111    * This feature was motivated by the need manage a bunch of config files using the same template 
     50=== 0.9.6pre1 === 
     51 * Refactor Cfg/TCheetah/TGenshi/SGenshi/Metadata to use common client- and group-specific entries 
     52   * client- and group-specific entries can now be used as 
     53     * Probes 
     54     * TGenshi templates 
     55     * SGenshi templates 
     56     * TCheetah templates 
     57 * bcfg2-admin refactor 
     58   * Mainly conversions 
     59   * Implement non-interactive mode for bcfg2-admin pull 
     60 * Simplify client-side proxy code 
     61 * Implement Multi-fingerprint support 
     62 * Rework option handling (everything is now flat, and all option parsing occurs in the outermost calling script) 
     63 * A variety of trunk-specific bugfixes 
    11264 
     65=== 0.9.5pre5 === 
     66 * importscript performance improvements
