A major feature enhancement in this release is the ability to configure linc with cleartext passwords. This eliminates the authinfo extraction procedure. The release also contains minor version and help message bugfixes and documentation updates.
The release includes code fixes to compile with gcc3 (e.g. Red Hat 8.0) changes to the daemonization code and addition of an initscript.
Ashish Kulkarni's linc_cfg (http://www.symonds.net/~ashish/projects/linc_cfg.html) makes it easy to generate your lincrc file by extracting the authinfo and writing it to a file. Check it out.
linc 1.0 is released.
This release signals a code freeze on version 1.0 features.
Feature requests for the next version will be acted upon actively in the coming days. :)
This is the initial release notice for linc 1.0pre-alpha. linc is a free multiplatform authentication client for Cyberoam / 24online.
