PCD Version 1.1.5 has been released

This release contains two changes:
- pcdapi.h file contains changes that allow to include it in C++ applications. Without this change, C++ applications fail to link with libpcd.so.
- In some cases, pcd thinks it was already running when it was not. This happened when other processes with names containing the substring "pcd" were already running in the system.

PCD Version 1.1.0 has been released

This is a major release with many updates:
- Using standard system types defined in sys/types.h.
- Updated STATUS to PCD_status_e and IPC_status_e respectively.
- Support crash-daemon only mode (no rule files, acts only as a crash daemon).
- Support x64 platforms (great for running pcd on your Linux PC development machine).
- pcd now kills all its children when terminating and daemonizing in the beginning (no need for running explicitly in the background with &).

PCD Version 1.0.9 has been released

This version tries to improve the PCD support for environment variables. It is now possible to concatenate values to environment variables in the PCD script (though not recursive and only one variable). For example, a command value can be:

COMMAND = insmod ${MODULES_PATH}/net/gigeth.ko
