We are pleased to announce the release of GNU Mcron 1.1.1,
representing 48 commits, by 1 person over 3 weeks.

* About

GNU Mcron is a complete replacement for Vixie cron.  It is used to run
tasks on a schedule, such as every hour or every Monday.  Mcron is
written in Guile, so its configuration can be written in Scheme; the
original cron format is also supported.

* Download

Here are the compressed sources and a GPG detached signature[*]:

Use a mirror for higher download bandwidth:

[*] Use a .sig file 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 mcron-1.1.1.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 0ADEE10094604D37

and rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.

This release was bootstrapped with the following tools:
  Autoconf 2.69
  Automake 1.16.1
  Makeinfo 6.5
  Help2man 1.47.5


* Noteworthy changes in release 1.1.1 (2018-04-08) [stable]

** Bug fixes

  The "--disable-multi-user" configure variable is not reversed anymore.
  'cron' and 'crontab' are now installed unless this option is used.

  The programs now sets the GUILE_LOAD_PATH and GUILE_LOAD_COMPILED_PATH
  environment variables with the location of the installed Guile modules.

  'next-year-from', 'next-year', 'next-month-from', 'next-month',
  'next-day-from', 'next-day', 'next-hour-from', 'next-hour',
  'next-minute-from', 'next-minute', 'next-second-from', and 'next-second' no
  longer crashes when passing an optional argument.
  [bug introduced in mcron-1.1]

** Improvements

  Some basic tests for the installed programs can be run after 'make install'
  with 'make installcheck'.

  The configuration files are now processed using a deterministic order.

  The test suite code coverage for mcron modules is now at 66.8% in term of
  number of lines (mcron-1.1 was at 23.7%).
