RFC-NG 3.2.0
* updated afick to version 2.3-1
* choose an arbitrary SSH-port when setting up a node (aka: you don't need to run ssh-server on default port 22)
* check for "wc" while setting up
NOTES: This release add the ability to choose an arbitrary port for the SSH daemon.
So, in the config file you'll find a new entry named "SSHD_PORT=xx". If you want to use your old
configuration files with RFC-NG-3.2.0, you have to go in "nodes/settings" directory and simply give:
( echo "" ; echo "# SSHD port" ; echo "export SSHD_PORT=22" ) >> old_config_file
Repeat it once for each host, obviously! ;-)

RFC-NG 3.0.0
* really honour the $PROC value on fast systems too
* kill process if it takes too long (requires `kill` command)
* corrected a bug in some string-checking
NOTES: sorry but I have to jump from ng-1.0.0 to ng-3.0.0
because some people makes mistake between old-RFC and
RFC-NG, so I prefer to be clear: this is the latest version! ;-)

February 27, 2004
RFC-NG 1.0.0 (aka: RFC New Generation!)
