GNU inetutils 1.7 released

The GNU inetutils team is proud to present version 1.7 of the GNU
network utilities suite.  The GNU network utilities suite provides the
following tools: ftp(d), hostname, ifconfig, inetd, logger, ping, rcp,
rexec(d), rlogin(d), rsh(d), syslogd, talk(d), telnet(d), tftp(d),
traceroute, uucpd, and whois.

Many thanks to all the people who contributed to this release.  As
always, we are looking for contributors and tester.  Happy hacking!

The following things are new in this release:

* ping

New option --timeout=N, stop sending packets after N seconds.

* New logger implementation

The `logger' utility has been rewritten from scratch.  The new
implementation offers many new facilities.  In particular, it
is able to send messages to system loggers on remote machines, and
to supply the PID number to include in messages, instead of the
PID of the `logger' process.

* Restore the traditional behavior of ping without -c option.

* The manual is now licensed under the GNU FDL version 1.3 or later.

* rexec

New program.

* tftp

Command line parsing now uses argp.

* Man pages for all tools are generated using help2man.

Here are the GPG detached signatures[*]:

To reduce load on the main server, use a mirror listed at:

[*] You can use either of the above signature files to verify that
the corresponding file (without the .sig suffix) is intact.  First,
be sure to download both the .sig file and the corresponding tarball.
Then, run a command like this:

  gpg --verify inetutils-1.7.tar.gz.sig

If that command fails because you don't have the required public key,
then run this command to import it:

  gpg --keyserver --recv-keys D95A3C35

and rerun the `gpg --verify' command.
