GNU Mcron 1.2.3 released

We are pleased to announce the release of GNU Mcron 1.2.3.

* 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.

Due to the length of time since the last release of Mcron, I have
shortened and clarified the various improvements into a condensed
version for readability.

* 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-1.2.3.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.

This release was bootstrapped with the following tools:
  Autoconf 2.71
  Automake 1.16.5
  Makeinfo 7.0.2
  Help2man 1.49.3


* Noteworthy changes in release 1.2.3 (2023-03-26) [stable]

** Improvements

  * MCron has been moved almost entirely to Guile.
  * There is now a standard mcron and a vixie mode for a more classic
cron experience.
  * Documentation cleanups.
  * Example bugfixes.
  * A huge amount of usability and safety enhancements to functionality.
