GNU Mcron 1.2.0 released

We are pleased to announce the release of GNU Mcron 1.2.0.

* 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-1.2.0.tar.gz.sig

If that command fails because you don't have the required public key,
this is available attached to this mail.

Then rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.


* Noteworthy changes in release 1.2.0 (2020-08-13) [stable]

** Improvements
  C code removed, mcron becomes 100% Guile.
  Make doc/mcron.texi gender neutral.
  Have src/mcron/scripts/mcron.scm (process-user-file): use read and eval
    instead of load.
  New tests added for extra checks.
