Release Notes: Two bug fixes: poll loop could be become close to zero in case of a "connectionfailed", and Sleeptime wasn't correct if all hosts failed. This release uses avmore "sane" minsleep and maxsleep values.
Release Notes: The use of the ntp_adjtime system call is now optional. The clock frequency will be adjusted when using the "-x" switch, and the systematic drift will be compensated. This works only in daemon mode.
Release Notes: htpdate can drop root privileges while running to enhance security.
Release Notes: Mostly code cleanup in this release. Debug mode is now allowed in daemon mode.
Release Notes: This release can run as a non-root user. It includes a better call of the 'date' function.
Release Notes: The poll cycle loop is now sped up once a time offset has been detected. Systematic drift was added to the syslog logging (daemon only). A "adjtimex_parameters.sh" script that may help to reduce the drift of your system clock was included. "precision" was changed from microseconds to milliseconds and the man page directory was changed from /usr/man into /usr/share/man. HTTP/1.1 is now the default.
Release Notes: "precision" didn't always behave like it should. This has been fixed.
Release Notes: The "-p" (precision) option was added to increase the accuracy of htpdate even more.
Release Notes: The variable type of "param" has been changed from char into int (compile warning/error gcc 3.4.x). The compare function for qsort is more robust (avoiding overflow).
Release Notes: IPv6 support has been added. Resource flooding when Internet connectivity is lost for a long time has been fixed.
